Welcome to the site!
Skip #3. It won't help. Hypermiling keeps revs low and load % high, and here a free flowing exhaust is useless.
Buy a ScanGauge2/UltraGauge and use it to learn how to keep revs low and load %.

Re #3

Well at least the car is 80 pounds lighter so it was not a total bust lol do those scan gauges monitor what the engine is doing in real time or is it a pull out and review style

ScanGauge, UltraGauge or equivalent: they have real time MPG displays with resettable trip averages (as well as a bunch of other useful stuff).

55 MPH should be getting you some decent numbers already, even without mods.

What MPG are you getting? What's your goal?

Are you keeping a fuel log?

Scan Gauge

Sounds good i have a new CBR that does that its a shame they dont just build it in the cars like they do with the bikes. Im tracking fuel by setting the trip between fill ups im getting about 360 miles on a 12 gallon tank. I would like to break get anywhere from 50 to 60 while still using regular gasoline. Im debating on ripping out the trunk and back doors to convert the car into a two seater and replace it with a fish tail. Just curious have you guys messed with the hydrogen cells any results?

Sounds like you're not tracking mileage too closely. (We usually talk in 'MPG' to one decimal point around here! ). Create a garage entry and start a fuel log: Your Garage: [ Add new vehicle ]

50-60 mpg will be a challenge, but it's doable with the right mods & careful driving technique.

Don't waste your time on hydrogen. Spend it on mods that are known to work. 65+ Efficiency Mods
