I just cant see getting a cheap on gas car and making it get the same mpg as a challenger or Camaro or something like that. kinda kills the point. might as well have just got the faster car. just my 2 cents though.
Who says when you make the engine more efficent, you can't have power & mpg. Isn't modding your motor similar to changing wheels/body & paint? Its a mod too. I can get 35mpg on the freeway w/ my 23, so yea motor mods helped w/ mpg.
