Default $300 for a good mod

I have $300 for a good mod that will yield noticeable results. Currently I have a superchip and a DIY spectra intake with a steel 3" tube. No internal work just add ons. Honestly I'm in a speed war with a 2005 duramax with an edge juice with attitude, straight pipe and cai. I know I can't beat him with light mods but I want to be at least competition haha

Yeah that's what I figured. It's able to get wheel spin into second with 295 mud grips. But what about the mod question?

For that price you could look at an under drive pulley. Not a major gainer, but it'll decrease the parasitic losses from turning all your accessories.

What about an 85mm throttle body? Would that give me any power or would it just be over kill?

I have 300 burning a hole in my pocket for the same reasons as you too.


I'm considering a Fastman TB as well, so report back if that's what you go with. Hopefully someone that has one will weigh in for us.

For $300, I would go with a ported throttle body or an exhaust cutout. The cutout will be more fun.
