    Hey guys. I was looking for a good relatively inexpensive way to increase HP and make merging on highways easier. I was thinking a K&N intake?...How much is a good price for it? any reviews? any ideas? Thanks!

    The link you posted if for 2nd gen, looks like he has a 1st gen.

    Cold air intake is a great way to add some mid-range power. K&N makes a good system as long as it is the FIPK2 kit, don't get the one with the aluminum air duct that connects to the throttle body.

    I knew that...:rolleyes:

    for some reason i thought that was a sig pic...


    All that chrome is worth about 25hp right? how much more could you need?!?!:D

    HP is not cheap. The deck plate mod is the cheapest way to get a few ponnies and a little better throttle response. Other than that you could get some headers, they are not cheap though:cool:

    None of this option are bad but you may not be that happy at the end. You will get a crisper acceleration but not much horse power gain. At least not enough to make a diference. If is not too much for you pocket??? try to reach for a supercharger. You should be able to get a supercharger for you 1st generation for about $2000.

    Nice truck.

    Turbo charger for $300 ?????????/. You really have to post a link on this. A turbo is all most 30% more (complicated, expensive to build) and I can't see somkeone selling one for that much.
    You should be able to installed 265/75/ with out any issues. It will fill up the space a little bit more and is like 1/2"-3/4 " taller. Bigger then that and you may rub a little at full turn.

    Do the deck plate mod. I was stupid before I joined TW and got the K@N and IMO its nothing more than a expensive paper weight. But if you have the money do a header, deck plate mod, and a good muffler like a Dynomax super turbo. Then if your still not satisfied go big and get the supergharger. Check out my pics to see what all I have done performance wise to give you an idea.

    you do realize that is 300 bucks for the turbo. they are not just a bolt on piece. you need everything else to install it. i.e inter cooler,lines,piping, gaskets,etc. so your gonna tie up more than 300 bones.

    True bcg, I never realized that. I'm going with the deck plate mod. The thread here shows how to do it on a v6. Will the mod be the same with my 4cyl.?(2.7L)..Here are some updated pics too!

    Yes. You can do the mod to the 2.7. Use a 4" deck plate, and install it on the front of the air box, just like the V6.
