New guy here...
Hey all, I'm a new guy on the board. I have a bone stock 89 sidekick that i bougth a few months ago just for a cheap winter 4*4. I didn't realize that it would be so much fun! Have a few questions though...
Isn't it hard on the engine, when driving around 65-70 that its turning 3500-3700 RPM? Poor little engine just sounds like its screaming! I'm scared to even pass someone at 75 because its almost at 4,000! What are all your guys's driving styles on the highway?
Also, my zuk surgest at idle when it gets warm. It never quits, but it surgest up and down about 500 rpm for a while. What could that be?
Is there any easy modifications to get a little more power out of it?
What are the biggest tires I could put on it without gearing it down ? I do mainly highway driving, with some mud and snow, but no serious off roading. I'd like to get the rpms down alittle on highway driving.
BTW mine's an 89 with 105K miles on it.
