I'm an innovative fan myself. I also run DJ's and they're decent as well.

i'm just trying to decide. i've had this banks 6 gun in my 06 as well as my 07, but i had to remove it to before i took it in, and don't feel like having it put back in. I have 40" tires, and a 12" lift so im trying to maximize mileage right now. i know that sounds stupid, but trade in values right now are horrible so im just trying to weigh my options. I noticed though, if i have the chip set on a high setting, and keep my foot out of it, i get alright mileage. What kind of mpg are ya'll running with the sct? i know every vehicle is different but just to get an estimate

well i got 40" tires, but also have 4:56 gears, 5" exhaust to 7" stacks, and a cold air intake. right now if im calcualting it right, im getting around 17mpg or so, depending on wind and how hot it is outside. my calculations are not 100% true because my odometer is still off because of the new gears.
