yea the motor itself is bone stock. I have the programmer and cold air intake, thats all for the motor part, I always use the best stuff (plugs, wires etc.) on my truck
Its prolly been asked millions of time, but is there a way to build up a 318 to be decent. Every time i ask this, im always told to swap for a 360. Why do that when my 318 runs fine. I know i can get more power from a 360, but a 318 shouldnt be far behind.
What can i do to improve performance. Its my toy, driven only about 500 miles a year, so mpg is not a problem.
what can 1k buy, or 1,500 buy?
or should i just try a high flow cat. The cat i have is prolly clogged with junk
