Hmmm

I would debate the 3 spd vs. the 4 spd. I drive a 92 EB sedan with 4.0 with 4 spd and a 89 EA wagon with 3.9 CFI with 3 spd. I can tell little difference in fuel economy. The EB has a bit more power on take-off, but the EA has more power after you get moving, from 30kph to 100kph. I like driving the wagon best. Oh, I do not drive either with a soft foot.
