This will not help you with your Power problem .sorry there are no Magic Solutions to HP

I did find a little help for a turbo engine I have a 2500HD Duramax and I put in a turbo boost controller in it, when I need more HP I just turn up the boost!!!! Very easy to install and works!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with Coz!!!


But really, I saw a HUGE improvement on my truck by swapping the factory exhaust, I also replaced the Y pipe, but I don't think you have the same restriction there as I did. V10s sound funky without some exhaust modification, and the factory chose to restrict flow to make them sound better. Seeing as I don't care about such things, I opened it back up for some major gains.

Making the engine breathe better will add some power, I would start there since you are not hurting anything internal, just removing restrictions so the power you are already making is going to the wheels instead of breathing.

Another trick (don't know about chevy's too much) is getting rid of the mechanical fan on the front of the engine and replacing it with an electrical one, greatly reduces drag on the engine.

95% of Fords built since 1999 are still on the road.

















The other 5% made it home safely.

I will look into the bigger throttle body. If I had six grand laying around I would buy forced injection for sure!

I agree with Jim, it's all about how it breathes, in and out. For about $600 you can get yourself an extra 30hp. Air intake, cat back.

No doubt a new cat-back system will help........I'm sure my stock muffler with (2) inlets and (2) outlets is not breathing too well. Will probably go that route soon.

I am a big fan of PPE stuff. I have one on my d-max and like it a lot. I have had really good luck with them and they are great people to work with. I run mine on level 2 (tow haul) all the time.

You know, I don't think anyone here would point fingers at you for cutting a few corners on the garage, to make it possible to get the extra power you need.
