i figure i've spent about $850 on the performance parts i have now and have gained aproximately 40 rwhp...after i get the STS pullies and Black Magic E-fan i figure $1200 for about 55 rwhp...i plan on having the truck dynoed after the installation of pullies and fan if not before...there is no real cheap way of adding real huge power to our trucks...The Mantapart head is probably the best reliable HP for the buck you can buy for our trucks...$500 for 30 HP...after that you can slap some NOS on and kick some butt..

Ah but does he have the 2.2 or the 2.5?

From what I have heard if he has a 2.5 there are some diffrent mods that can get some more HP.

My thoughts....

If its what you have, make the most out of it you can. Most people dump a minimum of $500 in the stereo alone....I think you'd be happy with a header/intake/perf muffler/chip/plugs/wires etc....

I say go for it, make your 2.2 faster than a stock 2.2. A little tweaking never hurt, even if you gain only 25-30 hp total, I think thats a nice increase, compared to where you started (120).

I just got my 2.2, and I'm most certainly going to squeeze a little more hp out of it....

Besides, I don't consider the v6/v8 boys my enemy, I'll never catch them, without joining them...I'm hunting rice......(anyone know the curb weight difference between the same truck with a 2.2 vs 4.3?, just curious)

Cheers,
Russ
