Yes. At first I had my doubts about the 2.3. But it has significant power. I never felt like I needed anymore power on request. I constantly tell my wife how surprised I am it's a 4 banger.
If you will allow the comparison. Driving the two engines is like driving an Audi A4 compared to an Audi S4. The A4 has what you need, the S4 is all grins.

The 2.3 is very linear in acceleration, the 2.7 has very little happy medium on the throttle.

There is only about a 100lb difference in weight. You will not notice a difference.
Ok — can someone help me out …

Why do you need differently-“tuned” (for lack of a better word) shocks/struts if the weight difference is this insignificant? I mean having a second passenger makes more of a difference.
