You even have to be careful with those...there are a ton of designs out there that do nothing but suck hot air in from the engine bay and hurt you more than anything.CAI,
Well the tires and lift are gonna help your gas situation:doh0715: Why not save the money for the lift and tires and buy a 4 banger 5 spd Honda Civic if you're worried about gas? Seems like you went from one extreme to the other...on one hand you're worried about mpg's then you're going to go and do the exact opposite of improving mpg's. I mean hell, a decent set of 35's will run you $800 and a good 4" lift will run you $1000, you could definitely pick a gas sipping beater for that.ok that was wondering without really asking directly if it was worth it or not. In reality i think im screwed either way cause I'm planning on putting on bigger tires and lift before school starts. the nice thing is i will be over 400 miles away from home so i wont be driving a long distance everday.:rockon:rockon
Whoa whoa whoa, it's difficult to try and answer a guy who's tune and plans change with every post, I was trying to get the info straight and then the newbie started in with the name calling. Not a wise tactic when asking for help.Hey guys, I'm not trying ot get in the middle, but can we get back on track to the OP's origional question please.
The short of it, there's no computer to use a chip. You drive a brick that's going to top out at 12mpg's in stock form. Now couple that with a monster lift and tires and a regear, you're looking at an easy 5k in parts alone and you just cut your mileage to half at best. Now you're driving around a pavement pounder with zero power, so you're going to want to spice up that 460 to the tune of another 3k minimum and you'll probably lose another mpg or two. Then once you start breaking things, you'll drop even more coin and need to beef up God knows what which adds more weight further dropping your mpg's. So if you want it as a toy, great...but if all your plans come true, you'll be luck to have a 4mpg rig.No my bad guys instead of asking for a chip i should have asked other methods. .
Someone needs to sig this or put it in the quotations thread.im not a huge knowledge person.
