results from 649 mile run. 18.03 gallons for 35.8 MPG.
So far I have only installed the front 2 tires. (Yokohama Avid S 205/70-15's approx 6+% oversize.
And this trip included more local driving, 1/2 hr of stop and go interstate traffic and 1/2 hr of right or left lane closed slow downs. Its repaving season.

My RPM's are down. Now when speedo reads 65, actually like 68+ rpms are down to around 2600 instead of 2800.
It definitely took its toll on low speed(60-65) hill climbing though. At 60 rpms get down to below 2400 and it took a lot more throttle to maintain speed.
Sweet spot is at 16-17 tps(Throttle) on level grade at 65-70mph. MAP goes below 8.0, even down to high 6's to mid 7's and mpg on Scangauge hits high 30's to low 40's.
I really need to get the rear tires on, may need spacers, and get to work on aero mods to reduce HP/torque load at why speeds.

2000 Camry CE 5 speed 128+K. Best 37.0, Goal is to break thru 36 consistently(Attained). New Goal 38.
ScanGauge II, Unibrow(1 wiper) Air Intake, Mud flap delete, 3.5+" Front Spoiler, Full Moon Hubcaps(Lost). Upper Grille block. (New and improved Fall edition)
