I dunno, what mileage you getting now? Probly drop about 3-4 mpg, more if you highway it and even more if it's an auto but that's all a total shot in the dark.

Here, this should help.

::EDIT:: "More Power" means at the low end. You'll have more jump off the line, but your overall high end will go down. So you'll be able to get up faster but you'll top out faster.

Well with the 4 you're gonna want to stay close to stock. The closer you are to stock, the less MPG you'll lose. Really, anything over 33"s I think is a mistake on a 4 DD because you're going to lose so much power and you don't have much to begin with.

I went to 4.56s and 35"s on my 6 and lost ~1 mpg and I can still hit 80 on the highway.

I dunno. Titties. Buy a 6 cyl.

Really, anyway you look at it, you're gonna be underpowered or using too much gas in that 4 banger. BUT if you throw on 4.88s, if you get the cash to swap into a 6 cyl, you'd be good all the way up to 37"s.

Don't dillude yourself. You're making a swap for tire size and you're going to lose somewhere. Tire size is going to determine where.

Have I meandered around the subject long enough?
