Which do you guys recommend? Turbo or super? Because of the supercharger kits I've found, they are way too much money to spend on my truck which isn't even worth that.

Turboing it is going to be even more expensive than an s/c, loads of custom work...

Is a tuner just like a chip? Because I found an SLR chip but on their site it doesn't have me select my engine size or specific year haha. What is an underdrive pully? I have an exhaust and I am getting a CAI.

You want more power but you don't want to spend too much money? Fail! Horsepower is just a question of money. How fast do you want to go?

Also remember that the 4.0 only has 207hp. That is the lowest rating of any 05 and up truck available now.

Just because you have a tuner, dosen't mean you can make it fast and reliable. If that were the case, people like me would be out of a job.
