BAD CJ mileage!!!!
OK, never posted before, but I really need some suggestions-- I built an 85 cj7 with a 383 stroker, 600 cfm holley, B=M turbo 350, NP206, AMC 20 rear w/ forged axles, but left the stock 2.73 gears, thinking of highway (75mph)mileage and RPM. I'm turning 2200 at 75 (33x12.50 procomps) and the BEST mileage I got was 10.2 WTF!!!! what did I do to get such lousy mileage? this same motor in a 70 elgambino got 18 on the highway (and turned 12's in 1/4 mile) any thoughts or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. thanks guys!!!
