    what year is it? if it is an 05 or newer, its drive by wire which means it has a computer controlling the flapper, so the best way is a custom tune

    yeah it will help, but the biggest hold back is the computer controlling the throttle, just because you foot is on the floor doesn't mean that the flapper is fully opened
