    Hey Ben,

    I read your post and didn't want to sidetrack the thread about suspension but wanted to follow up.

    You said "I was hauling around 400# of ready mix in addition to my regular load of tools and toolboxes in my beluga whale a few weeks ago and while the ride and stability were unchanged, I noticed a YUUUGE difference in performance."

    This sounds like a warning against the 3.7L to me?
    Would it have been loaded to about max cargo at that time? like 3,500 lbs?
    It's surprising 400lbs would make that much difference.
    I've got a good opportunity on a 3.7 but thought I'd hold out for the turbo since it's so fun to drive and I live 9,000 ft in the Colorado mountains, where the 3.7 will loose a lot of power.

    Thanks!
    Shawn
