So a one tank reading isn't really accurate.
Too bad that isn't possible with our cars. He has a 2011 bud. Trifecta and IPF are the only tuning choices and their both "box" tunes. They can be adjusted with datalogging but no hands on options for the 2010-2011. The best we can do is if you have trifecta try to get an appointment with vince so he can be on while you dyno and he can adjust the tune based on the dyno readings.

That seems about right. I never do 80 consistently but that sounds perfect if the average is about 26-28mpg at 75 mph.

Cleaned my MAF sensor after taking apart my intake, it looked fine though...

Did some strong pulls and the car seemed to be pulling okay. Hard to tell because of the weird weather this week, one day going to work its 45-50 yet leaving work its 80, so the car feels a lot different.

I really don't think its the MAF or vararam, I've had that intake on ~30,000 miles with no issues.

Its one of the following, ported manifold, spacer, or catch can. I think the misfire was caused either by the catch can or manifold but I have no idea why...

I am getting about 600 km or 372 miles on a tank...

I suck at math but I am pretty sure that is close to 20 miles to the gallon in your term

or 12 liters per 100km

this is all city driving too... so is city driving good at 20 miles to the gallon?
I have CAI intake, long tube headers/hi flow cats, mrt v1 and trifecta tune.

Since I am mostly city driving (my Camaro is a garage queen) I get about 100-110 miles per 1/4 tank so roughly about 400-440 miles per tank. So that would average out to be around 22-24 MPG which is right around what my DIC says. I have only been on the highway once in the camaro and got about 25-26 at 75MPH with the A/C on.

I bought one off a member here for $70 when he was selling it. He never used it, either. Maybe you can check out the classifieds. Otherwise it's not that expensive of a part I don't think. Maybe $100 new?

Sometimes I think my car ran stronger before the ported manifold, but of course, I can't say that for sure. You'd think it should add up to more power, and some people say they felt the difference, and I think there is a dyno or two out there showing the gains. But I just never really felt much from it.

I got it the day the dyno was posted and I definitely noticed the difference. try disconnecting the battery for 30 mins so that your ecu will re-learn everything

Oh, I've been running it for a good year or longer now, and so over that time I'm sure I've had the battery disconnected for different reasons, and I've had the tune checked and what not. Its painted and polished and looks great so I don't want to take it off lol. Just don't remember it making much of a difference performance wise....who knows. Maybe I've just forgotten.

Cheapest place I have seen is Amazon. Just keep a look out they are always chaining the price but its usually right around 100 shipped.

talking about the battery being disconnected....

For the third time of me owning this car, the nut was not tight enough on the negative side of the battery and I couldnt start the car for 40 minutes. I have subs in the back so I cant physically reach the handle to open the trunk. im about 5'9.

I then got a ticket for being in the spot too long because I couldnt start it.

What a day.

Agreed, I do feel a difference but it is no as dramatic as stock-vararam was. I think that might attest to how good the gains are that the vararam provides. I trapped 96-97 stock, now I consistently trap 100-101 with A LOT of different wheel set ups(street tires 18 and 20s, DRS 18 and 20 inches). Just haven't been able to get a good 60'.
I'm hitting the track within 2 weeks so that will prove what the manifold and spacer do. I'm hoping for a minimum of a 102 trap, ideal conditions and if the gains are true, it should trap at least 103-4.

Wtf! They normally are told to not ticket cars with the owner in them or near the car to avoid confrontation...
