    Throttle body spacers (If that was what you were referring to) don't do shit other than make a nice annoying whistle. If you want some real upgrades look at the URD MAF callibrator.

    Welcome!

    I have a 2.7L too. You can check out the 4 cylinder forum for MODS and see pics of other 2.7L trucks.

    well first of all, where in VA are you? If you want something cosmetic, take a look at the black headlight mod, or debadging/painting badges. Other than that you should figure out what you would like done to your truck and what budget you have to work with. Take a look at some other guys trucks to get some ideas!

    Because you will mostly do highway driving, I assume you want good MPG. You said you have a K&N intake. Nothing wrong with that. You can put on some Doug Thorley Headers and aftermarket mufflers. You will hear different opinions about the best muffler. You just have to look around and choose what you want on your truck. You could get different tires, IMO stock tires just got-to-go. You can use Tire Rack to determine what you want.

    The resources can be found throughout TW. It just takes time and money to get what you want. Enjoy the MODS!
