All you will get here is a 'seat of the pants' dyno test. I do know that one or two of the posters here run short TORS with the cat and complain about fuel mileage. That coupled with their tune will account for that. I have the HogSlayers and consistently average 45-47 mpg. The only truly noticeable difference will be a 1600 vs 1700. Anything else is going to be 1-2 hp and that won't be noticeable at the throttle. Fuel economy on the other hand can be felt at the wallet.
