Take the rest of your cash, sell the truck and buy a 6...But seriously, fast is a relative term. That little, and I mean little motor is only going to push that truck so fast....You may be askin it to do more than it reasonably can.....

well, when i say faster, i dont mean it to do 12 sec in the 1/4. i just want a little more power to it, nothing crazy. i would sell it if i could, but its gotta last me thru 4 more years of college.:cry:

Please please tell me thats meant to be a joke. Or have you recently taken up smoking crack again lol. I wasnt bad mouthing the 2.2. They are a great motor for what they are. And what they are is 2.2 litre 4 cylinders. God damm I hate beer muscles. Especially when it comes to some people's trucks. By the way, I see a ton of body mods but no real performance mods. :dunno: What makes that LITTLE 4 banger of yours so fast. Must be fast if it needs 4 point harnesses (I know, there really there to hold you in theseat as stuff blows past ya right lol). Post a pic it so we can see that custom airdam and taneau(tonneau) cover. Why is it that some peopl just feel a need to flame for no reason.?:wtf:

02REDXBLAZE, if 2.2 are so slow and you have a 4.3 why are you hanging out in the 4cyl performance upgrade page? Just curious:whogives:

I dont think that telling him to make it look good and then sell it in a few years makes sense. mine has a 2.2 and i was going to put an 8 in it but decided not to. If you can build a 2.2 that will beat most 8 cylinders then thats a big accomplish ment. If you get a turbo you can have 300+ hp in a 2.2, 4 banger.... just my $.02

Well, my $0.02... I would rather put all the money that it costs to add NOS, and all the other +1 HP mods to a 2.2 and put the $$ towards a 4.3L V6 and a Turbo... Makes more sense to me, at least. I love my 2.2L.

Dont listen to 02REDXBLAZE he is the King Of BS
Just look at his dyno charts he posted
Claimed he had 300hp from K&N, Modded Airbox, Ported and Polished MAF, Relo ATS, Throttle Body Restrictor removed. HPPIII, Black Magic E-Fan. Moroso 8 mm Wires, and Dynomax Drag muffler w/ Dual Tails and 3" tips

Sorry 02RedBlaze but you know it is true
