No idea.  The DWR1 cam is supposed to be 'slightly better than stock,' 
and the cylinders are bored 0.045" over stock, so I'd expect some 
improvement, but without a dyno it's hard to be precise.

I haven't run a tank through yet, but I'd expect mileage to be a bit 
better; my engine was pretty weak before the overhaul.
