The EPA ratings when I bought it were 32/38, and the adjusted "new" estimates are 27/34/30.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: I had the available TRO "cold air intake" installed with it's K&N air filter.

I have made a lot of use of Coroplast and tape -- the Cd is down from 0.31 to ~0.26-0.27. I am using smooth wheel covers.

I have replaced the side mirrors with video cameras and small screens!

Planned Mods: Mostly aero -- I'd like to do a full belly pan (aluminum probably) and possibly a full boattail.

I would also like to replace the 4.31:1 final drive with a 3.56:1 gear set.
