Whoops thought there were. You could always turbo it, that would give you a bit more power.

Sell your truck, buy something with a larger engine. That is the most economical way for you to get more power.

Your better off getting something with a bigger engine like others have said already, but if you really want to get more power out of your 2.5L then I would put a turbo in.

I heard that using the search function instantly adds the same amount of horsepower as using the Tornado.
