With the bolt on stuff, youre looking at probably a 10% increase in power, give or take. Any more than that youll have to do internal engine work.

Your schedule on the mods depends on how much money you have to spend right away. The BamaChips tuner can be customized to include the other bolt on modifications if you do those first, but at the same time, the tuner will be the most bang for the buck.

Yeah, if you ar elooking for performance and saving money in the process... go ahead and get everything but the chip first.. then get the chip and have it tuned that way. That will net you the most 'Gain" from the process.. which is just what I have been doing on my own truck. Taking my time and doing it right =)

do internal work if you want a real power gain.
supersixmotorsports.com has longer rods for the 4.0L Heads/cams, pistons, short blocks/long blocks. ect

is your 1/4mile time after all the mods?

i know your moving more weight than i am being 2wd. but bone stock, i ran 15.6 in the 1/4. im not trying to be a d*ck or anything, just curious as to the actual benifits of all these "performance" mods available. the truck set up was, bone stock, 2k miles on it 3.55 gears 4.0L Auto.

What engine do you have? Auto or Manual tranny? Regular cab? What axle? Theres MANY factors that go into the math when measuring power at your rear wheels.

The weight difference of a 2wd & a 4wd is substancial. Trust me.. it's as good as it's gonna get on my FX4 w/o adding power and/or removing mass.

As far as the mods and thier value. The X-cal 2 and crank underdrive is where most of it comes from. The K&N does give a solid 10hp but only up over 4k rpms. The others are not worth it from a power perspective.
