put the 98 front end back on

Finally got around to putting the 98 front end back on. With new headlights/corners of course.

I dont think the 2.5L will ever see 30 mpg. They are gutless and won't get the mileage like a 2.3L.

I was getting high 20s stock. 27 at the highest. I figure lowered and on light rims and low profiles with 3.73s I can push 30.

the old 2.5's got maybe on a good day a solid 27MPG, but thats on a good day, i get anywhere between 27-32 on the 2.3L lowering winn do nothing to improve fuel economy, believe me, i have looked into it, and did real word number comparison with the scangauge


looks good mike, what ya need now is a chrome bumper with a color matched valance
