Need more power

Well I put my 17's on with 245/70-17 tires and I noticed a slight power loss... It was expected but now Id like to gain that power back. I know people will probably say to get a chip tuner and headers but is that really going to add alot more power? Stupid question I know but Im flying blind on motor knowledge. Thanx

If you get a charger your gonna need a tuner and different pullies anyway. Pullies, exhaust, Rousch intake and tuner would give you some more power back.

lol thanx guys but I doubt a charger is on the list of mods unless I win the lottery... I already have an exhaust and I gutted my airbox and put in a drop in K&N but I may upgrade to a cold air intake, maybe headers, chip and tuner after its all said and done, I just need the cash!
