For real, but in all seriousness, do the deck plate mod. I did it on my 2.7 and I can tell a difference especially when I pull a trailer.

Yea? I feel like my truck goes faster after I wash it. But there's no way to dyno that.
Who has the dyno sheets for this so called deck mod that everyone is always clammering about?

Seriously. I'm not knocking anyone for trying this so called deck mod and it makes sence that allowing more air into your engine (since your engine is nothing more than an air pump) is going to create a few ponies. But I have yet to see one dyno sheet proving this. I tried the search and there is talk about "the one guy" that has the sheets. But I cant find them.
anyone? up to 6 hp on a 2.7? really.

if you have the time and a 3.4, take the throttlebody off and look at the metal gasket. Its kinda shaped like a D. Cut it down untill its shaped like an O.

Any effects (most concerned about negative) on MPGs with the dynomax super turbo muffler?

No effects at all (I was getting 22 mpg easy before the lift and tires, 19 now). Just great sound.
