@USMC: You actually can't tell me anything "first hand" since you have literally never seen, been in, or driven my truck... but I can tell you, first hand, that before these modifications it wouldn't break loose the rear tires by just standing on the gas leaving a stop sign... it will now easily spin the tires just stomping on thr throttle and will chirp the tires going into second gear now. So, actual first hand experience says you're mistaken. You seem to think that adding 30hp to this engine is a significant increase... That's not even 10% increase combined, it's about a 7.5% improvement. That's an entirely realistic increase and pretty much to be expected on every vehicle out there by removing the restrictive intake and exhaust. If I was looking for 20 or 30% improvements, then yes you're right, you have to move beyond the factory computer at that point... but for sub 10%, sorry marine but you're mistaken.

@obee1: Yup, that's the thing, once you start changing maps and tunes out becomes a game of trade offs. I don't really need more power but I appreciate still getting 19mpg... Those bumpers look damn nice, pricey though. I've been thinking annoy replacing the grill with something that'll hold a light bar but I don't know if I'll mess with the bumpers. Once I start down that road, I can see myself blowing $15k and winding up with a 6" lift, 40" tires, desert bumpers, light bars, and a truck I don't enjoy driving around town as much. Its a slippery slope lol.

@USMC: No... Not true. The computer is constantly adjusting for air temperature and volume on the intake side, increase in airflow leads to any increase in fuel to prevent it from running too lean... and exhaust side, pulling the restrictive stock exhaust does wonders, especially at rpm. You can definitely get further gains with a tuned fuel map but you can still easily pick up a few percent gain on either end without it.

You gotta build that block! That's the best way to do it... makes it so much easier to do everything without having to go step by step. Just build it up and drop it in. That's gonna be rad... 300 horse is no joke in such a small vehicle.
