You want to accelerate faster? You have 2000 to spend?
My first question is what size tires you are running and what is your axle ratio?
You can spend your money how ever you like. You will make your money with a performance tune or even a regear, since you are looking for acceleration.2005 Chevy Silverado Z71 in Black
