$245 For both driveshafts to be shorten/lengthend
$175 MAC intake
plus all the fluids, misc bolts, filters, misc crap...
Keep in mind, im including shipping costs too
It all adds up quick :( Lucky I had the money at the time my motor blew up lol
Anyway, I went ahead and finished my full tank of gas today. Combined with me having a LEAD foot, an 800lbs 3.0 motor/tranny combo on the back of my truck and driving in stop and go traffic, i managed to pull 13mpg out of the motor.
If I didnt have the 800lbs motor/tranny on the back of my truck and my speedo was calibrated to my tires(5mph off at 60mph so im really going 65mph@60), im guessing I could pull a good 2 more mpg atleast from that. This is City MPG, im wondering what id get on the Highway. My guess is close to 18mpg :) This swap aint looking to bad after all and its looking like im getting better gas mileage then when i had the 3.0
MARK: The efan? I have no idea what year, i just bought it off ebay lol
