2.7 performance questions

I have been looking for performance parts for my 2.7 for a while with little success. I was wondering if anyone knows of any good priced turbo or cam kits available for the 2.7

AFE drop in and secondary filter removal will give you some throttle response. In the end you won't gain much with bolt ons so your 4 banger will still be a 4 banger.

True mudders usually have V8s because torque is needed to spin big tires. I'm not even sure there are aftermarket cams for a 2.7. Check out LC Engineering.

I want to keep the 2.7. I have other motors that could replace it but i thought it would be cool to deck the motor out and change the gearing. its not very often (if ever) people see a monster taco with the factory block still in it.... well atleast round here

Even Sc'ed or Turboed 4banger wont be torque monster down low in RPM range.

Heh.. If I were doing big tires, I would do Intake/Header/Exhaust and HIGH gears in rear end...

Cams are bad idea. Cams don't "make" power they shift powerband, most performance cams shift power from low rpm range to make power up top in rpm range.

Yup, you can re-gear up and down, just remember, if you go low you lose top speed.

Yeah yeah yeah. In the end 99.9% of mudders have V8s. Why? Power.
