If you even have to ask simple questions about a project like this then you are seriously pipe dreaming to begin with.

there is only one person who has bothered to figure out all of the details and he says that it is not very cost effective, meaning don't bother. i you really must know who he is its terry haines.

Maybe a taller final drive with all this power I have, but that is it.





6th gear on highway = great gas mileage...I image in a V8 Camaro can get 28 mpg...CSVT's could get 30+

But as stated...its not cost effective (fuel savings VS. Cost of project) unless your just rich and want to do it for fun - which I would do...
