Taking pride in the appearance of your vehicles is important to me but I want it to perform well. My 1500 is totally stock (except for an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player) and I know there are some compromises inherent in any design. So, I'll be looking for some effective modifications to improve performance and fuel efficiency.
Problem is, I have no idea what those are for this truck, which why I joined up in the first place.
I know that better air in/air out improves performance and efficiency so I'm looking into smog legal intake and exhaust options.
Also, I know that the fuel management program is written fairly conservatively, so a programmer is also on my list of research projects.
I tend to remove emblems, molding and stickers on most of my rigs...heck, my 300C SRT8 is practically nekkid! LOL I'll probably strip all the moldings, stickers and emblems off the truck after it warms up a bit.
A nice billet grill, some window tinting and a different set of wheels/tires are in order.
So, I'm on both sides of this performance vs. looks thing.
