Of course I get wood when I see a 1970 Chevell LS6, Now THAT is raw power.
I've always had a soft spot for the Chevelle, it just looks like it means business.

And I also just read your other thread, guess I will have to take careful consideration in routing my throttle cable...
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.
1991 YJ, bone stock. Starting all over again with another YJ...
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.
