The K&N Mod: take a K&N filter, solvent clean it to remove the oil, then pour epoxy resin over 3/4 of it leaving just a small area to flow air. Don't forget to re-oil that area after the epoxy hardens!

Negative headers: replace the exhaust headers with 1" copper pipe. Very easy to fab and you can solder them instead of welding since your engine will no longer make enough heat to melt the solder...

Intake system: same as headers but 1" PVC tubing.

Replace your spark plug wires with fiber optics...(DRAMATIC decrease in power output)...

Chip it: put an old XBOX mod chip into your PCM. Your truck will actually be faster, but only in the computer. In real life it will be the truck equivalent of a couch potato.

Hyper-parrafin pistons: these will melt when you make too much power and decrease your compression by reducing piston height.

Low-flow CAT: special catalytic converter made with titanium microfiber matrix -- very restrictive but it will never wear out.

Flowmiser muffler: special performance reducing muffler that gives you the sound and performance of a golf cart. Very popular in country clubs.

Prejudice-ply tires: similar to bias ply tires, but totally resistant to anything resembling rolling.

Motorblast "Time-Bomb" spark plugs: special nitroglycerine core self destructs and disables cylinder firing at some random time. Not only performance reducing, but adds a sense of drama since you never know when you're going to lose power.

I did quite a bit of research into these because I'm tired of the roaring power of my 3.0 and wanted to know what my options were.

John that is some seriously funny stuff. I love them all.



To reduce power significantly you can do what I did hit many mud holes repetitively untill it causes you mechanical fan to cease up. This kills your power. With my 33's and 3.73 I feel like i am back in my 88 Bronco II with 30's and 3.45 with a 2.9L

I am almost certain that this vehicle would remain stationary for long periods of time unless you give it a big push from the top of a hill.

-Add a few gallons of water in the gas tank.
-Let l2en drive your truck through water, that'll really do it.
-Get you gas out of a 56 chevy that's been sitting for 30 years.

Hook your truck up to a fully loaded semi!

Oh, and the stoping your air filter up will work......We had a gocart a few years ago, and we were ridin it around and it started losing power big time, to the point it wouldn't even move itself (nobody on it). Turns out the air filter was seriously stoped up with dirt and fouling the spark plug.

Tow chevy to crusher.

Crush Chevy.

Place chevy in bed.

And hook boat anchor to hitch.

If that ain't enough find Dodge to replace boat anchor. No wait they are boat anchors.
