Re: more power from my f 150

What would you classify as inexpensive. $20,$200, $2000, or more?
For me i classify inexpensive as $20 and i don't really know if theres much you can do with $20 these days. Things just get more expensive every day. Throw us an estimate at what you looking at and maybe we can give you some advice. Got any plans for the truck?

Re: more power from my f 150

Headers and exhaust would be the first step

Re: more power from my f 150

Change your rear end diff. Lower diff ratio will get you off the line a lot quicker. Maybe going 4.10 would help better. I'm not to sure of the actual price though.

Re: more power from my f 150

Well you'd have to change both diffs i guess. As for the exhaust, if your not to worried about speed, and i wouldn't be either, i'd stick with the stock exhaust system if you havn't already changed it. Any changes to the system will either be a waste of time any money especially if your chasing low end.
