Save the money and buy a 4.0, you will most likely always be dissapointed with a 3.0

You do what you can. Mine is better than when I bought it.

You didn't say what year your truck is, but here's some information.

Common mods:

MAF mod
Throttle body mod
Intake system
Exhaust system
Chip or flash reprogrammer

Less common:

Roller rockers
Cam
turbo or supercharger

Depending on your year, you may find my cardomain site useful (link in my sig) or check out this site: http://www.rogueperformance.com. That is Fred's site (he's Fredness here on the board) and he's a 3.0 modding guru of some note.

I Have A 1999 Ranger 2wd With 4.10 Gear Ratio And Cold Air Intake. How Many Pounds Of Boost Should I Run With A Turbo. Oh Yeah I Was Wondering Does Anybody Out There Know Where I Can Get Some Headers For My Truck. Like I Have Checked Jegs, Summit , Jc Whitney, And I Found Nothing.
