Mentally flipping coins? Too two dimensional for me. I like telling myself jokes.

How did your GTO lose so much mpg?? Are you on stage 3 cams and shorter gears or something?

loose?

it's still getting pretty close to EPA estimates


I'm making almost 50% more horsepower than a stock GTO
it does have a big cam, as well as custom fuel system mapping

Nice, I have a hybrid and a muscle car too, it's always interesting to see other people who can appreciate both cars. My Civic has saved me a pile on fuel but it does need a new hybrid battery, for now I am driving it without the electric assist while I consider my options.

My original plan was to take a sporty car and ecomod it, but I have come to the dark side and am saving my preferred vehicle some miles.
