Fuel economy goes down and the entire power band will increase!!!! Depends on what gear you put in her.

3.91 gear will be the one to go with in my opinion. You lose less high end and still have the off the line acceleration.

Like GTODealer said you will lose highend, but have a broader power curve

If you've got the money, then go for it!! You will not lose that much top end with a six speed, with the cars weight it will help with the steeper gearing.
