    I don't really care for myself but will be selling her this year and a lot of people ask. I have gears and headers/catback as well. And Merry Christmas

    Thanks Jeff. I think I must be close to that. I am sure I could still squeeze out high 20s with a 60 mph cruise but I don't usually drive that slowly. I find the Hotcam drives pretty close to the cam in my C5 Z06 except it doesn't smooth out until maybe 1800 rpm where the Z was cruisable at maybe 1400.

    You betcha.

    I think the 4.10's probably dropped my mpg by 2 or 3 across the board...but the fun to drive factor most likely played a part in that. Took the Vette to Vegas a couple of months ago and was averaging mid 20's.....until I got there.

    My 'ex (and soon to be again) '92 with the LT4 conversion and Hot Cam averaged 24-25 on the highway and 15-18 in town. I think it could have done better but it was just too much fun to drive.

    Yeap! Thanks!
    It's coming back in a couple of weeks.
    The current owner is in North Carolina and he's driving it out to OK for me early next year.

    I'm not sure what I'll do with 3 Vettes in the garage but I couldn't let the Tunasport slip away.

    OK, for what it's worth.....all stock (exhaust, intake, LT4 engine/cam)....my '96 gets 28.3 on the interstate with careful driving. I never check it around town but I expect it's around 22 or so with moderate driving. I'm pretty easy on it.
