Also if possible, could someone make a little list of anymore performance upgrades that I could to for "relatively" cheap. (Around $1000 at most) Thanks any help is appreciated
The list of 2.7 "performance" parts is a short one, and you just about mentioned all of them. I installed a few simple bolt one parts onto my 2.7 and am satisfied with the results.
Our 4 bangers are basically high torque low rpm industrial engines and I wanted to enhance only that specific quality
on mine and so I looked for parts what would make the little engine pull harder at low rpms.
The one that hands down gets the most results is the LCE long tube header ($475 shipped).
I ran mine on a dyno and it lowered the torque peak by 650 rpms.
I also run a really long Injen intake. And while I don't believe that it made any performance difference... it sounds freaking AWESOME! Nothing
else sounds like it. This video is with the really quiet stock exhaust so all the sound you are hearing is only
coming from the intake.
I also run an intake manifold spacer ($245) that lowered the torque peak another 250 rpms...
So for $940, I took a stock 2TR FE engine with a torque peak of 3,800 rpm, and turned it into a "tractor" engine that has a torque peak of just 2,900 rpm.
