okay, i already have all the exhaust done on my truck, also a k&n air filter, helix throttle body spacer, and a hypertech chip, but i'm needin to know what other upgrades i can make to get a lil more hp and torque and maybe even better mpg? would either goin to a larger throttle body or a new intake manifold change anything?

no, there is no point in changing the t/b. i heard a lot of guys saying they last power and mpg with the t/b spacer. all i had on mine was headers, custom exhaust that dumped behind the cab, and a stock intake, and a hypertech. i was beating 4 door hemis on the interstate. i was on 22s with a 2/6 drop

get headers and run a high flow exhaust system..not just a muffler.
if that's not enough, go get a cam and a 3000 stall. run you about 1100 all together if you do it right, and get a good stall.

good luck. everything costs money..and lately i've seen parts climbing in price.

They really aren't very expensive for the returns in power, drivability, fuel economy and wear and tear. Ive got something like $600 in gears in my 1 ton axles, learn how to do it and save yourself like 50%.

even buying the right tools, you can do it for less than 1000$. It evident that you spend time online, you are part of a forum...theres QUIET a few pages on the web that tell you the ins and outs of gearing. Quit skipping around it and get gears. like ive said before, bang for the buck, its the best thing you can do for oversized tires.
