Am I doing something wrong? If I type in 2.5 or 2.5L it shows 0 results. Trying to weed out all those other motors and just get info on the greatest 4cyl ever. Is the search criteria to short?

I've found it tends to ignore smaller words and numbers usually things under 3 letters

1989 Shelby Dakota #1319 - Sold
1991 Dodge Dakota 318 4x2 - Sold
1995 Dodge Dakota 318 4x4 -Sold
2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5 AWD - Daily Driver

The short words filter is set up to keep the database from crashing looking for common three letter words. Like if you searched "Wheels and Tires" it omits the and.

Its cool. I was just curious to what others had done with the 4 Banger. Not much i see. I was gunna use it as a commuter car, but its only getting about 19 mpg. My 2500 ram gets better milage. still a nice little truck though.

yeah the 4 cylinder is under powered hence the better gas mileage in the ram..i only average 15. you may as well just drive it the way it is. all u could do really is a exhaust and in my opinion it would make you look and sound like an asshole..i really want a 4 banger dak for my dd and have the r/t as well i think that would be bad ass

Well i did remove the cat so i probably only sound like an ass. Dropped in a k&n replacement filter. Removed the egr shit. Put some nice wires and plugs on it. That netted me about 1 more mpg. Since the max speed i travel on my commute is 50 and its hilly maybe some lower gears would help so i can use 5th gear more.

Oh okay i got ya. Some people have some crazy plans. Just make it look nice rolling down the road and cruise it gently. Maybe a nice stereo system so it has something else to make the truck enjoyable
