Default Do I need motor upgrade

I have a 2008 precedent that I'm going to finally lift 6" and install 22 or 23" wheels onto. My ? Is will I lose speed and torque doing this ? Will I need or should I upgrade the motor and controller ?

as mentioned, if you decide you want more torque you can get the motor rebuilt by PQ just a little over $200 I think and that will basically improve all around. Any more desired then that yes it will start costing more and more.

Yeah Steve is right, you will gain speed with the bigger tires, but will lose torque. A Bandit upgrade may suit your needs...
