You can always start with the basics:

Performance exhaust
High quality filter
Computer programmer

After that, you can always bolt on a supercharger!

I would love to get me a supercharger on my Sierra. It's spendy, but it's hard to beat the price per horsepower!

I would actually look at an Air Raid cold air intake. But DO NOT use a K&N on it. The oil from the filter will ruin your mass airflow sensor.

I may not be an expert on the subject, but more horsepower 99.999999999999999999999999infinity% of the time means more fuel.

well when you are hopping up a motor and going mudding with it most of the time.. well I speak for myself im not worried about fuel economy.

Thats not always true. Swampy is really looking for efficiency. There are a few mods that will give you more power and better fuel economy. The folks at the factory don't build for perfection. They build for cheap!

this is for my tow rig

those cold air intakes are a ****ing rip off

I ordered one many moons ago for my 91 when it showed up I was baffled why a piece of 3" exhaust tubeing and a k-n cost $250

03-14-2006, 10:06 PM
I could have bought a filter and a piece of tubeing for $60 but your bent over for the piece of **** plastic part they had made in taiwon for $.05 that "creates a swirling vortex effect increasing horsepower, torque, and gas mileage" that bolts to the throttle body

these things are a Joke unless you like to piss away money
