I don't know - I don't think the 3.3 and 3.5 driven the same way have much of a real fuel mileage difference. I have NOT ridden in a prepped 3.3 car - but I can tell you bare stock 3.3 and 3.5 - night and day difference in zip... Maybe a prepped 3.3 like you or Dave have (had) would be a bit different, but then, I think you'd have to prep a 3.5 the same way for an apples to apples comparison.
I really never paid much attention to the difference in gas mileage or performance between the two, I'm sure there is some but its really not my concern.

Oh mine is is not peppy. Makes noise for sure but really stock besides a little experimental porting. I am sure I am barely around original 160hp ratings with 207K on it. However I will say it still hows plenty of TQ and when used with autostick in the power band, which is, all of it almost lol seems to move fine. However I can drive out to the Dragon (two hours mostly highway 70+) beat the snot out of it, staying in second and pretty much keeping the rpms needle from dropping below 4k for several hours, drive back and still get 26+ mpg.
