MPG should be slightly better than before the install. As long and you are not racing the car you will see about a 5 - 15 % increase in MPG.

I don't think you will find a problem with the transfer-case. VFE is only doing a mild application... 6PSI ~ 40% increases in power. There are reconmenadations for the track such as bigger brakes, clutch,supension and much more. Street driving, most of us are not racing for very long or we would end up in jail and have to pay traffic fines. Being built is nice but its exspensive and can be over kill for the street. So the answer would be It depends what you want to do with you car and how much $$ you have to blow.

I bit the bullet and got a VF supercharger. I can say their customer service is top notch! Any issues and they are right there to help out.
