    ehhh.... search the forums for mileage, and you might find some interesting posts... though nothing has yet been said about those spacers I don't think...

    Theres not too much easy stuff u can do to gain mileage...i threw on a TB spacer since it was given to me, no gains...just looks neat and with a flipped air cleaner lid sounds neat. E-fans seemed to give me more mid to high end power. I wanna go on a trip again to see if i can actually break 13 mpg...last time i was close, but didn't do it. I think i am getting slightly better mileage from it, but it does do wonders for cooling, so even if i were to lose mileage (which im not) then its still worth it. Other than that, having the correct gearing helps out a lot. In some cases headers and intake can improve mileage SOME...but don't expect much more than 1 mpg increase if u are lucky.
