Yeah I was torn between the ESS VT2 600 and the VF 620. Both are fantastic kits and make the same power on a dyno...so I flipped a coin...heads ESS tails VF....came up heads so I bought the ESS kit.

Trust me I'm not, its crazy man. I can't explain it. I thought the CPU was broken, then I calculated it by hand and it is consistant. I drive 100 miles per day, which I think is why my overall MPG is good. But when I am in my town that car is put sideways at 80+ mph every chance I get. I made my Akra blue from the headers to the tips in 500 miles, guess it gets hot at 180+ lol. Enjoy the kit, but dont be suprised if it out beats your other daily driver in mpg!

Interesting. Well I'm getting 14mpg in mixed use driving so I guess it's just a bonus if I get better MPG with the blower. I don't drive a lot of highway miles but it's good to know the MPG improved quite a bit for you.

Hey - are you going to the Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Event in Central Cali??? I would love to run a VF 620 car. Sign up begins tomorrow (Monday) 10am at www.shift-s3ctor.com
