I've had a couple of Saturns, SL1 and SL2W, what changed in '99? (they're for sale cheap up here A LOT) And whats a HAI?

HAI = hot air intake. One of the tricks that commonly works on the saturns.

somewhere between 97-99 the transmission for the sohc was changed to a taller overdrive. I'm not exactly sure. Cheapybob has a 97 and I believe he has the shorter gearing.

I believe the BIG problem with Subarus is weight. Most of them weigh 3000+ pounds - not exactly high fuel economy material.

Bingo! It's a porker. Small, but heavy. It's the hills that kill my FE, it's a lot to haul up to the top even if you do get to coast back down. It weighs @ 1000lbs more than I'd like.
