I'm not blown, but from what I hear, as long as you stay out of boost you should be good. All in all, I believe it drops like 1-2 MPG if you drive it like you did before the blower, shifting at no more than 2,500 RPMs, etc. And yes, that goes for both centrifugal and positive displacement blowers.

:eek: Wow, stock or blown I don't think I've ever shifted below 2500 RPM's. (Ok, well maybe in my neighborhood but after that no way) Where's the fun in that. Now that I think about it I rarely shift below mid 4000's often higher than that even. :badgrin:

I think I may need to talk to Kenne Bell or something because it seems at best I'm getting like 8mpg, and I'll only get on it once or twice a tank.

I can get 25-26 on trips, but the T56 helps quite a bit. Around town it drops to 17-18 because it just sounds so freakin good in 1st and second gear!!! :dhg01:

If I had a KB it would be way worse because while the Vortech noise goes away over 2000rpm, the KB gets louder, I'd want to drive around listening to that sweet whine all day.....

Have I said that I love your car? I'd cheat on #0005 to drive that beauty. :dhg01:

18 MPG city is what the car was originally rated at, which was 18 MPG city and 25 MPG highway.

I used to shift at 2,000 RPMs, but since I got my exhaust, I shift at around 2,500 to 3,000 RPMs. If I had a blower, it might be a different story lol.

When I had my Bullitt with the Vortech it would get around 24-25 on the highway and 20-22 in town.

I have never really figured the mileage on the Cobra exactly, but I would say around 22 on the highway and around town I have no idea. From time to time my right foot will have a spasm and my toes will point toward the floor. :wink:

Last I checked I was getting 12-14mpg in normal driving. I never take on trips so I don't know what it gets on the highway. I pick it up tomorrow after having cams installed so I expect the mileage to go down a bit from this.

I bet the altitude also affects it.

MPG might be down a bit BUT I bet smiles per mile will be well up !
