With forced induction and staying out of boost you actually do get better gas mileage than a naturally aspirated vehicle. That is after getting it properly tuned. So my goal is still not far fetched even with a supercharger..

Basically with forced induction the engine does less work since your force feeding all this air into it which when ur out of boost and like I said tuned properly...the car runs slightly leaner which in turn gets you better mileage...my old 2.2 cobalt after i turbocharged went from wAtever is stock mileage to 45mpg.. This was staying out of boost and driving normally... Now once I got to having fun in it mileage would drop to about 18mpg. Which would only happen on spirited driving on canyons or actually going to the track.

Well I already dropped in the bigger injectors... Basically she's all ready just for the bolt on... It does take power turn the supercharger but it really isn't that much as people think. Centrifulgal supercharges are very efficient unlike root style superchargers

Funny, my first car in 1975 was also a 66 coupe w/straight 200ci 6cyl.

Oh, there is a great website mostly dedicated to the 200ci six.

Awesome man welcome to the Forum. You'll get alotta slack about performance tuning for mileage but at te end of the day it's still your car. It's actually the motive behind alotta new muscle car builds. Older body styles for the look and styling and newer more advanced motors so you're still saving gas and running more efficiently. And I see you're from LA Maybe I'll see ya at one of the tracks around home some day
