Thread: General Mod ?'s

  1. #1

    Question General Mod ?'s

    I've got a budget and it isn't that large. Talking $200 to $300. What would be the best modification to help boost the performance of my truck?

    Cold air intake will start the fire. Best mod I ever did on our 2001 Suburban w/5.3, night and day difference.

    Cool General Mods?

    I also have 05 Z-71. Biggest mod as Diablo Programmer. Its alittle more than your budget but as you add future engine mods you can adjust the programmer for those mods.

    E3 plugs , TBI spacer, and a K&N air filter will get you started well for probably less than your budget.

    CAI, but don't go cheap on it. Remember you get what you pay for, so don't grab one of those weird brands that only the store owner has heard of. Let us know what you do, and if possible post some pics.
