TRD Supercharger w/o fit kit = $3,800.00
DTLT = $540.00
aFe Exhaust = $422.00
URD CAI = $289.00
URD MAF = $199.00
Drilling holes in your exhaust so it sounds like you have some extra HP = ...well that depends on your brand of drill

Seriously though, you gotta pay to play. In the end the little gains you get may not even be worth the amount you spend. IMHO I don't feel as though our trucks are underpowered. Don't get me wrong I'm not saying I won't do performance mods, but for me the juice is worth the squeeze

The best way to make cheap power is to swap in a VTECCCCC motor from a Honda. Then you are shifting!!

You can add 20 HP but it will cost you 1-2 grand.
Is it worth it?
That is up to you.

Unless you care to retro fit your truck with a old school big block and take pix for everyone?!!

Another way is to figur out how to remove your A/C from your belt system with out removing the A/C itself. It can be done, ya just gotta be creative. Thats anywhaere between $20 and $50 for about 5 hp.
