bang for the buck mods
 
just got my 2003 4.7 and i want to open it up a little bit. i plan on towing snowmobiles in the winter but thats about it for towing. its 4x4 and i'd love to get the best gas milage i can. im not looking for awsome power, just better performance and better MPG's for the best price. idk if that means buying a programmer, CAI, or exhaust or something else?

The big 3 are CAI, exhaust and a programmer. You'll get various opinions as to which is best.

yeah, a good CAI, cat-back, and programmer should be fine for a little bit of extra power...

what size tires, what gears do you have? Are you looking for better mpg in town or Highway? I think the best bang for the Buck would be gears. Its not cheap and in your case you would have to pay double. But a better gear would help move that heavy a$$ truck. Also a good programmer would help alot. With those two mods youll see more of a difference then you would with a cai,exhaust.

I'm not saying those mod arent good, but for the money you spend on those you wont see near the performance with the other two.

Gears would cost double compared to what?

I didn't compare them to anything. He stated he has a 4x4. Sorry for the confusion.

Super chips 3865 would be your best bet for a tuner.
