    I drive mine like an old man as well... from first gear to second most people behind come close to rear ending me. I usually shift before 2K.
    I do have an aftermarket intake; so if I have a passenger with me I will sometimes get on her causes she screams and it sounds good but that's about it!

    what's the point? it's a truck, not a corvette.

    your truck will last a lot longer if you don't abuse it.

    I love to drive fast but the truck helps prevent me from doing so, the 2.7 only has so much power
