Why do all the fast 4 cylinders have to be in cars?:cry:
I'll tell ya why... it's because the American truck makers have ****ty 4 cylinders to work with. I have yet to see an American made 4banger(non-turbo) that even comes close to what Japan puts out. AND, We have very little power.. around 100HP(pathetic), so naturally you think, "that's ok, we get much better gas milage." WRONG!!! I know I get awful gas milage!! I'm extremely lucky if i even get close to 300miles on a tank... my brother's 4.0L I6 Jeep gets better gas milage than me! Something is very wrong here... the new Acura RSX pushes out 200HP... come on USA!!!! Get your SH!T together!!!:rolleyes:

ahhh.... feels good to vent a little! I need a turbo 6... Sy/Ty!!!! :D

Speakin' the truth....Amen brotha'

I know what you mean about ****ty gas mileage (about 350 per tank) Chevy shouldnt have put 4 bangers in there trucks anyways. For one if you buy an S-10 for a work truck, you need power to haul. Two if you have an Xtreme how Extreme is it with a 4 banger? But if they had to put 4bangers in them, at least put the 150hp DOHC one in. Come on GM wake up! :bash: :idea:

thank ya brothers... :D

It'd be a fun swap... but i know that turbo 2.2 is transversely mounted... so you'd be looking at a lot of custom work! Man! I'd love to have a 4banger that could roast an 8... HEHEHE!!!

I'm happy with my truck, just saying that they should have put more power in them, as soon as I saw my truck on the lot I wanted it right then and there. So oh well

I got mine when I graduated high school, my parents took me to a dealership in town said "were givin you 4 gand, you cover the rest" I had two trucks to chose from, a white base model longbed that I think had the 4.3 or a black ls w/4000 miles on it for $1000 more than the white base model, I chose the LS.
