So I'm going to be installing my v1 s trim on my car this spring break, I'm just curious, this car is my daily, how do all of your gt's run with blower? Difference in gas mileage? Reliability?
Weird.I daily drive mine. Runs perfectly fine in 0 degree or 100 degree weather. I have a separate winter tune for cold starts. The summer tune worked good until it started getting under 50 degrees. Then the car started running real rich on startup. I haven't had any issue daily driving it for 2.5 years now with the Vortech. My mpg did go down quite a bit after the blower. It does take about an extra 15% of the engines power to just spin the blower. All city driving I get in the 11's. Now this is real city driving not some suburban or country road driving. On the highway with 4.10's the car will get around 21mpg if I keep it around 70mph or lower.
I'm pretty sure everyone gets affected. You can't add an extra accessary that the motor needs to spin and not be affected. Idle fluctates like on any car between 14.5-15.5. WOT is tuned to 11.7.Weird.
Some people with centris don't get affected by fuel economy and others do.
Maybe it all has to do with the tune. What are your A/F ratios?
