    OK so I've been playing with the VSC options and feel like there is a difference with everything off. I feel like it's not downshifting on hills as much and that the 2.7l just moves the truck a little easier.

    Is it just my imagination or has anybody felt a difference with VSC/Trac off? :notsure:

    That's what I'm thinking too. Guess I'll have to get one of those superchargers off of ebay from the other thread to see some real gains.

    Its a 4 banger. You will not really find and gains. Unless you go big with cams, pistons, heads, headers and turbos. Do ALL of those and you will get some small gains.

    Imagination. One guy said he got worse MPGs with his ATRAC button pushed in while in 2wd.

    I'm not worried about gains really. I just wanted to see if anybody else had felt any difference to make sure it was just my imagination.
