Icon7 Quick Bolt-Ons?

Howdy Folks! I realized that as a college student I'm not going to be blowing any big cash on my rig so i was hoping that you guys could give me a list of suggestions to boost horsepower thats relatively cheap. I have a 2005 Mazda B3000 Dual Sport, whatever the **** that means, and getting sideways in the dirt isn't as easy as i'd like it to be haha. Thanks for you help!

Leaving it alone is your best bang for your buck. I'm not being sarcastic, its the truth. You could get underdrive pullies for the 3.0 but it doesnt make much of a difference at all.

In my experience best mods are headers exhaust and efan swap. Lets it rev a bit faster and a tuner it won't be any fire breather but i can get it to squeal tires into third from time to time.

If you do the headers and exhaust you will need an intake system to increase the volume of air. Then the exhaust, headers and tuning can do the work better.

These mods alone may run more cash than you want to spend.

An electric fan will free up some HP just how much can be in question but of you have the extra money, the e-fan and all the little parts then go for it too.
