    Without forced injection... You're kinda SOL at this point. Supercharge it

    You have a lot of miles on it? Might want to think about a rebuild before you start boosting cylinder pressure.

    Agree...anything else you do would provide negligible improvements, if any (e.g. headers, plugs, synthetics, etc) You're probably tapped out unless you do some sort of forced induction or nitros.

    nothing you can do except buy a v6. save your money or buy something else. theres lots of other cool stuff you could add to your truck for $400

    not much more i can do to it. i have full long travel front and rear. full roll cage. bumps on all corners and a elocker. just looking for a little more umph thats not forced injection because its my daily driver at the moment. I just rebuilt the motor so it got about 1500 miles. was hoping there might be something else i havent taken into consideration to do to my engine.

    other than forced induction, nitros is probably your only other substantial option.

    When you rebuilt the engine, did you have it Ported and polished? This can add a significant/noticeable amount of performance from your engine.
