    It shouldn't, but you'll probably notice a significant decrease at first because you're having too much damn fun.

    No, while running under vacuum, your mileage shouldn't be affected.

    my 93 actually gained 2mpg on the highway with the turbo technology kit when the motor was stock back in the mid 90s. and that was after I went from a 3.08 to a 3.55 gear and I upped from stock injectors to 30s.
