that doesnt really help his problem, nor will the sct work on his truck its obd1.

now doing a full tune up including plugs wires all new fluids pcv valve check all your vacuum lines, and make sure you got good clean gas. thats a start if you still feel down on power then do a compression test.

thank u all that is done ALL the motor itself runs fine i just need more HPs and sum torque honestly have too big of plow on it ... we have robbed qiut a bit of power cause we had to weld the clutch fan solid to keep it cool. i just am not savy on these OBD1 gas motors we r trully diesel guys.. dad bought this truck brand new to push snow. really thats all it does. but this is really driving me crazy this power issue im having.i was told that a 360 ECM would wake this little motor up or if any real performance modes were available>

first, start hacking on that tb. get some more air flow in there. put in a mild cam, headers, intake, re-gear it, all that good stuff and youll power through it. but with the cam you'd have to get a custom tune on the computer.

what and where can i get this custom tune i have no issue putting the money into the truck, been reading on this tb mod and will do it this week also ordered headers ironically very interested in this custom tune tho

i forget the name of the company that does it, but you tell them all of your motor specs on what you have and what you would like extra on it like air, fuel, timing, etc. theyll program the computer for you and send it to you. itll be anywhere between 3 and 400 bucks to get it done.
