    performane=fuel economy?

    i was thinking..... If i was to add a grate and a pump wedge on my 06 rxt would i gain better fuel economy at crusing speed? less wetted area.

    also whats everyones real speed and acceleration gain with a wedge and grate?

    i dont think its allowed to use the terms "economy" and "performance" in the same sentence especially if we are talking about the X...
    i dont know about the wedge but i do know that the RD grate is awesome in performance.

    wedge will deff help fuel economy because there will be less drag like you said.

    Well technically speaking, when you are building a performance engine you are trying to make it as efficient as possible, its just that you are trying to turn as much fuel into HP as possible instead of turning that fuel into miles traveled.
