2.5L powered here, although I'm researching swaps for the future

Standard 4.10s with 33s = no use of 5th gear, but its all good, 4th still stays under 3k RPM at highway speeds

I have it and love it. Sure it's underpowered, just makes driving fun, I can still do 75-80 on flat and even no problem....

I haven't seen one that does, at least the difference is not enough to make me want another, its maybe 1-2mpg at best, and the same or worse as soon as you add some weight or bigger tires, it gets overworked.
