I love my truck and it is not really weak by no means but i would really like to wake it up without killing my gas milage. I have a few things in mind like electric fans, throttle body spacer, long tube headers, and full dual exaust. I already have volant cold air intake. If there are any ideas or advice i would gladly take it. Best name brands or does and donts. Anything helps.

I would go with long tube headers and put an x pipe on ur exhaust before the mufflers. I chip or a tune could also help your gas mileage.

if you want good headers you'll have to pony up for them. the cheapo's aren't much better than the stock manifolds.

TB spacer they are a joke...

HS non adjustable 1.7 rockers
ported or F&B TB
M1 Intake manifold, Huges F1 or port your stocker

bigger throttle body and headers and any headers are better than stock manifolds its all about airflow you pay for design and weld quality i picked up a set for 180 that looked like they had good welds i wasnt disappointed bigger throttle body is next
