You will notice a decrease in pick up and go along with the use of fifth gear. I did 4" lift and 33s on .25 and lost my top end and no longer use fifth gear. You have a 4:10 rear gear which is pretty good but when I get on a highway I have to mat it all the time and never get out of 4th gear. Driving in the mountains I am slow on the climb lots of downshifting to keep the power up but the good thing the little four banger runs great between 2500 =3500 RPM. I will eventually regear just need some $$$$.
