EF XR8 extractors, twin 2 1/2" stainless, around 380 city.
Used to get about 450-500(max) when exhaust system was standard.
Why less economy?????? Sounds brilliant now under some/lots of acceleration.

City 320-350km
Open road 450-500

Varies depending on weight of my foot.

On a side note, at the track doing 7 laps (approx 10km) I used just under a 1/4 of a tank of fuel!
I also used 2lts of water within 5 laps through the water injection!! Yes folks thats 2lts of water going through my engine within 6 odd klm!
:crazy2:

Good thing this topic came up. Just done a test on the EL with normal unleaded and got:

Projected 580km to the tank. Thats out of a 68L tank. With a combination of city/highway driving don't think the EL will cut the 10L/100km like the EF did.

Currently i've fill her up with Optimax and testing if i get better km's to the tank.
