Try again... 4cyl on 35's vs 6cyl on 31's Not the same thing. If you want to make a comp then slap some 35's on your 6 and see how well it gets up to speed since that seems to be what you base how good the 4 vs 6 is...

MY '97 had a 4 banger and it ran like a sewing machine. Really. It was just under powered. I cannot complain at all about the reliablilty. It had 180k on the odo when I traded it.

I have the 2.5 with 140,000 miles and runs fine with no problems, just a gear issue.
