2.5L 4 cylinder was available that year, they are all Mazda transmissions should swap

@ DavidH25 Thanks man, i shall try that...

6,795

The 2.5L often gives worse MPG's because it was under so much strain! I would just put another 3.0 in... The 3.0's struggled enough in those little trucks and the 2.5's barely moved them.

65

I would try to remap the Computer. See if you can gain MPG that way.

@ James, how could i remap the computer??
