Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

Same with me I want to wake up my neighbors also. I would like just a little more power. Not a whole lot but just a little.

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

BUDAKANE - what was the cheapest mod you did with the most performance gain?
I have a cold air intake, throttle body spacer, 180 termostat, and a superchip programer

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

I'm gonna go all out when I get some money and how much is the 4.6 Oh and the only time I've passed people is when I go to tennessee to see my cousin and I pass people on two lane roads going 60 to 80ish and thats with loads of cargo including by brother that makes any car without a half good suspension sag, mother and I.

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

00wj.....first of all a throttle body spacer is junk unless u have a bored throttle body and have the spacer bored also ,all a throttle body spacer wil do is whistle on a stock throttle body, now with the thermastat.....not bad , a stroker kit will cost between $1400-1800 bucks i with my father in law owning his own shop i can get it for a grand flat out!! i would say the headers and bigger throttle body to answer ur question

Why a 5.9? The 5.2 and 5.9 engines are not exactly the most reliable on the road and as compared to the 4.7 and the 5.7 they not that powerful/full of torque to start off with.

IMHO stroke the I6, or do a 4.7 swap. There is a reason the 5.2 and 5.9 were replaced.

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

good point, duly noted however i guess i wanted the my engine is bigger than urs thing goin....however my inline as of now is stronger than the 4.7 so i might as well just stroke it and later toss in a supercharger........

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

the throttle body spacer actually increases torque.

Re: 4.0l owners....lets talk power and performance

BUDAKANE - with the spacer i notice better mpg and a better throttle responce... I wanted to get the throttle body but i didnt get as much money as i thought i would so i didnt get it... and as for the stroker i would do it next summer if i could get it at your price... i'll be getting the trottle body next...
