you have a big v-6 worth of displacement in a full size truck. nothing short of a fair amount of money is going to change that. if you were to do headers, cold air intake, programmer and exhaust you might... MIGHT net 20-30 hp at the flywheel. sorry bud, sell it and get a hemi or a cummins.

I'm pretty sure I heard a buddy got like an extra 30 hp when he dumped a couple of those cans of 'NOS' Octane Booster in that he bought over at the Auto Zone

you could affix an electric leaf blower to the intake. Run if off a power inverter and hold the whole thing in place with duck tape. might have to loose the hood but hey, you wont even have to "bolt" anything on

seriously though, as stated above, bolt on parts will only get you so far, and you will likely regret paying out the ass for them when you gain 20rwhp. the part you need is not so much "bolt on" as it is bolt in, and its name starts with HEMI.

Seriously, this question will never get a real answer here, nor should it.

This is for Dodge Offroad stuff only. Go to dodgetalk.com and ask this kind of stuff over there, they have a wealth of 4.7 knowledge.

I have a stupid question, didn't you drive the truck before you bought it, therefore, realizing the lack of power prior to purchase?


I guess I never understand why people with newer trucks are hunting for more power, how did you not realize that it was going to be a dog? Especially when you are purchasing one with the smallest engine possible? I mean there have to be way more Hemi trucks out there than there are 4.7's, the things are a dime a dozen?
