33" and 2" lift too much for 2.5?

i have a 99 4cyl that has 31's on it now. they really didn't slow me down (since it's so slow anyway maybe i just can't notice ) and they didn't affect my speedometer any.

my question is would 33"s and a 2" lift be too much for the little 2.5L to turn? i drive it 60 miles daily so i don't want to completely ass rape my mileage but i'd like my ideal setup too.

discuss!

well, maybe i'll just leave the wheels and get the cheapo spacer lift.

the stance looks pretty nice right now. i wonder if 31's and a 2" lift would look alright.

as it sits now:
