Default 5.9 mods questions

Hey Im new to the forum and just bought an 02 1500 QC with the 5.9 v8. My buddy has an 08 mustang GT. I was wondering what mods it would take to smoke him. I was wanting to stay under a grand to have time to save up some $$$. Any ideas?

Under a grand? The only shot I see you having is to add a nitrous oxide kit. Keep in mind that there are no guarantees that you'll beat him and if there's a weak spot in your engine, N20 will find it. BTW, where in Tn. are you?

Hello I'm new on this forum and I was wondering what's the biggest size tires I can put on my Stock 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab SLT 5.9L V8 2WD, without rubbing the tires, I want to put some mudding tires on it just so I can get through my grandfather's pasture when I go mudding, any suggestions
I have about $650 available to spend.

Some Dual Cat Back exhaut from flowmasters could help and they're about $600, so you'll have $400 to spare for a larger air intake, both should increase your horses and help with MPG
