    Don't let them get you down, Flint.:) I specifically put the T56 in my Z way back in '95 for fuel economy- I wanted to drive THAT SPECIFIC car, and I also wanted the best fuel economy I could achieve for my daily use. I did a comparison sheet years ago where I compared the miles I'd driven since against the fuel I would have used with the TH-350, and I was at $1400 saved in gas with the T56. This was over about 45k miles or so, I think. At today's gas prices, it would add up a lot faster if I were daily driving it. I was into the T56 for about $2500 (bought new in crate for $1850, plus supporting parts), so to get some payback from it was sweet.

    Oh, I also spent a LOT of time drag racing it at Orlando Speed World, so I wasn't only looking for economy. I wanted as much as I could get of both.

    So keep on keeping on, my friend.:cool: Welcome to the Efficiency Aficionados Club.:D

    0B4BD51B-30C7-4205-8C22-EAC312859B7E.png It’s no secret that I’ve been a Chevy man all my life, I still drive my old 2004 Chevy Silverado 4x4 with 267 thousand miles on it.
    But, if I would have to pick one today, it would be this one, hands down. 1F48BF65-A088-408E-B5F7-8CFFC47C95EC.png C7AB634D-F4D3-4DD4-997C-48AE858E7D1B.png 1F48BF65-A088-408E-B5F7-8CFFC47C95EC.png

    The flares are most likely required by DOT to keep the wide wheels inside the body work.

    Probably true. Cheap execution on a very expensive car.

    While I can appreciate you might like this car, and I know they are powerhouses, but in opinion it is ugly as hell. Those fender flares are awful.
