The fastman TB similar to a CAI will give you better throttle response, something you can feel. How much HP I don't know, you could try a jet chip until an actual tuner comes out. Even w/ all my...

Haha, no, I'm leaving it alone. I've been trying to figure out why my mpg dropped off, that's all I'm worried about now. I've got a bike now for going fast, seems you do as well.

Wow, didn't think they were that low, I think the old 4.7's put out better torque but had less hp. Anyone on the forum run their trucks to compare to SC numbers?

Haha, no not really the new 4.7 is what 330 ft-lbs, and my truck puts 210 to the wheels. My hp is about what a stock older 4.7 puts to the ground though.
