    no such thing as a simple and cheap power add. TB spacers are junk, dont bother. intakes help with wide open throttle, but dont do much otherwise. I see you already have a tuner and exhaust. to get more your going into the engine. I.E. new cam and so on.

    cheap power adds? reduce weight.

    Headers would be my next step if I were you. And like said above, a tbs will not do much for your truck. Those are useful to the older engines.

    Get a custom tune to go with that programmer. Hopefully you bought one that allows you to data log and lay in custom tunes from a custom tuner so that the handheld is a stepping stone to a custom tune rather than becoming vestigial. Custom tunes run as cheap as $135 bucks if you have a Diablosport programmer...

    Hey guys, please keep the discussion in the public forum so that it may be of benefit to everyone. If we resort to sending pm messages to each other for answers to the questions that are asked, then it sort of defeats the purpose of the open forum.
