I'd venture to guess that the LS1 FD will get similar, if not better mileage than most of the boosted cars here.
It should pull 26-28MPG on the freeway with NO problem in 6th

I stuck a metal punch through a hole in the flywheel with the starter removed.

I'm standing on the end of an 18" breaker and jumping up and down, the bolt hasn't budged.
