really what are you getting? I was getting 27mpg city at one point. typically see 22-25mpg city.

you're boosted now right? stay out of boost when you're cruising.

Did the "euro" parking light mod. Really improves the look at night.

No boost yet(too poor, damn owning a house and ---- in NoVA), I think I'm seeing around 22, I haven't checked this tank yet. Ill let you know when I fill it probably today. Might just need to adjust my cruise AFRs a little more I typically see 14.7-15.5 cruise depending on where I'm at in the rpm range.

Andy's shows up in ever damn parts list you google. I have never purchased from them before. I have always wondered how legit their stuff was.

Worked on my "custom" intake, but was not able to complete because the bung i ordered for the IAC valve was not the right size, and the Perrin foam filter (left over from the intake on my STi) is too freekin big to fit anywhere.

Also bought some LS2 coils from Shuiend that he is going to bring up when he is up here next.
