Sup fellow compass owners.I have so many things to ask so Ill list them numerically 1.Think it was rocky road that makes the 2 and1/4 in lift are they the only people who make a lift for a compass and also does the lift actually create usable under carriage heigth or is it essentially a body lift? 2.I am vetti 24 mpg on avg Is there anything I can do mod wise to boost that figure with real world numbers. 3 will gettin the pcm reflashed affect warranty or enough lerformance gains that the risk to .y warranty is offset .send me pics of your compass lifted tricked out etc with info on where you vot the gear thanks

Compass' are a unibody frame, and the rockyroad lift kit is a spacer lift that goes on top of the struts, it created 2.125" of usable clearance. There is no PCM reflash available. To increase fuel economy and performance, you are limited to an exhaust system and a K&N Intake.

I gained about 1L per 100kms in fuel economy. As for the sound, its got a good hum to it without being obnoxious. Since I have the CVT my intake tends to make the most amount of noise. Search on youtube there is a couple of patriots (same thing as compass) running different types of mufflers to get a feel for what these vehicles sound like with aftermarket mufflers.
