On 37's with 5.38 gears, at 70 mph I run 2450 RPM's. On 35's with 5.13 gears, you'll be in the same ball park.

what kind of fuel mileage are you getting with this setup? just want to get a idea sense I will be lifting and putting on 35's soon and 5.13 seem to be the way to go with the gears


quick thread jack does anyone know what torque the bolts need to be when reclocking the supercharger? I will be going from stage 1 to 2

thanks

Avg 12mpg (iphone app calculated) over the last year without SC.

Don't know yet with the SC. I need to let the newness of the SC wear off so I will keep my foot out of it and then run a couple of tanks. Right now the dash is telling me 14.2 with a heavy foot.
