Congrats and 525-535 is exactly what you'll do with a pulley, intake and a tune on a 07-09.

You want 650?

I can solve that problem for you in less than two hours.

Thank you sir.
My #'s may be off a little on the mpg.(BUT not by much)
I am sure you realize that most averages are in the middle or lesser with the occasional spike to raise the averages.
These #'s are also w/o doing any playing what so ever.(Driving these cars,that is tuff)

I have a few other things that may help in my quest that are not installed yet.


I am also looking for a stock cat pipe if any one has one....

B.J. I look forward to speaking with you about your solution to my quest..

Thanks
Big Mac
