I've always had a soft spot for the Chevelle, it just looks like it means business.

A lot of the guys who have done the 5.2 swap on here are saying they're getting way better mileage with theirs. I made a group for us, go ahead and join. All the guys that can give you info are in it. They're all saying somewhere in the 20s when they stay out of it.

My 4 banger got me 9-11 mpg both highway and city, my 5.2 will get me about the same. Everything has changed except how far my foot goes into the floor, and how quickly I'll get places.

i went from 12-14mpg in the 4.0 to 17-19mpg in my 5.2.

now i have not driven the rig yet with 37"s and 4.88's but i doubt very much i am still above the original 12-14mpg anymore.

Yup, flat pedal, just the way I like it. Pics of your setup?

I drive like an old man, and I don't understand why I get the mileage I do (14 mpg).
Maybe they live in really flat areas? It's pretty hilly where I live.

It is nothing but hill after hill here. The ZJ gets 14mpg stock, hoping to bump that up. I'll take 18, which is what I was getting with the 2.5L.

Which means either you got consistent mileage no matter where you drove, or you drove it softer in the hills and harder on the flats

The 6bt is a bit large and heavy. I doubt you could even physically fit it in the engine bay.

Not to mention the amount of torque would be hell on your frame. Add a little fuel to the 6bts and you can hit 1000 ft/lbs pretty easy.

Anything is possible, but a 4bt or Mercedes diesel would be more feasible.
