Talking 54.2 after lowering car, 4 mpg gain

This the best tank ever for this car. I installed LSi headlights, added a factory right mirror,( step back probably but it was on the LSi parts car ). I also lowered the car alot. I cut 1.25 coils up front and 1.5 coils in back. This dropped the car about 2.5 to 3 inches, it now looks like it should. The tires are a little bit lower than the center of the wheel wells. I bought an extra 3.79 ratio trans and a bearing and seal kit plus one syncro ring. So with the two trannys maybe I can build one this weekend. The overhaul manual on Teamswift.net printed out great, just like a factory manual. I also have a complete lower grill block. No more guppy mouth, car stays cool even on 100 degree days like today. I will report more success after the tranny change, then the cam. Cheers
