    super charging would be way over my price range . i come for a motorcycle back ground so the first thing i thought was intake and air flow and thats not much money what could i do with that

    intake and exhaust wont do anyting other than lose bottom end. the only way for better low end power is re gear or supercharger.

    How much faster and how much more power do you really need! These trucks perform very well the way they were built! What the hell you trying to pull? a 27foot travel trailer? C'mon. Ive got 3" lift and no regear or engine mods and my truck has all the power needed to pull and to pass! Unless your in a 4banger?:eek:

    Not really. If you dont over gear too much, your top end will be fine. The RPM's will be higher at a set cruising speed than they are now, but re gearing is the most effective way to bring back low end performance.
