Default 4.7L low end torgue

What is the best way to improve low end torque with the 4.7? i dont want to void the warranty, or spend a lot of money. Is that possible? Thanks for the help.

I'd say consider investing a programmer. I have the Superchips Cortex and I like it a lot, the gains are sweet. Our supporting vendors sell them, I think you'll be impressed

I agree w/Cadet,,, The Cortex noticeably helped my 5.7 out on the lower end,,, I'm just running the '87' tune now.

They go for upwards of around $400 depending on where you buy them.

Are there any dyno plots showing the improved low end torque? I am also looking for more low end torque but every plot I see only shows the torque at the high end.

I am suspicious of claims without the proof - gotta see it to believe it.

No problem, glad to hear you're enjoying the gains! I've got to try the 91 sometime, I've been meaning to do that.
