Yeah I would think that you should be able to get 50 even easier than I can considering you have a manual. Is yours a sedan or coupe? And guessing off the name if it's blue and a sedan I'll be super jealous since blue sunfire sedans are my absolute favorite style of j body.
I wish I had a manual trans that alone could probably get me to 45 mpg.

Anyway I've got the material now and the stuff I found will work it's a nice big sheet of plexiglass. I bought some black spraypaint yesterday to paint the block and touch up some trim that needed it. Now I'm just waiting on the motor I did a bit of testing and the rc motors won't cut it but the good news is I can get a drill motor for free! I think that is an all around better choice for 2 reasons 1. the drill setup will be less delicate because it's designed for high torque and 2 it will be wayyyyyyy easier to wire.

EDIT: I found the OBDuino thread I was looking for I'm just going to drop the link here so I don't lose it
Thanks as always and any advice is appreciated
