I'm not just doing the tranny though either. I'm doing the tranny, then I need an SYE, so I'm going ahead and having them do the track bars and the control arms and the CV driveshaft for my tummy tuck (I need the SYE anyway, why not get it all done at once?) as well as a new exhaust because mine's got a leak and I have to go do emissions next month.

Dude for that price, swap In a 4bt cummins. You'll get all the power you want and 35 mpg.

But you will need to swap axles.. The ups vans and bread trucks used to use 4bts. Search a junkyard.

It can be done for your 3,000 bucks and some work!

Yep. 4". Haha. That must be it. He just said lift, so I didn't know which he was talking about.
