Don't buy a 4.0 gas mileage of a v8 without the output to match it. You want a truck buy a ranger you wanna get any power you've lost complete tuneup. You wanna go fast buy a sports car

You can get small improvements with a K&N drop in filter, and switching to synthetic oil.

I know, and like I said I really am not trying to sound like a jerk or anything but when I signed up I looked all around the site.

Maybe I was a bit harsh. Sorry OP and others.

Other than a good complete tune up, I dought that anything you do to it, would be noticeable, unless you have access to a dyno to measure. JMO

15-20 for spoilers? Pfftt it feels like atleast 50-60 yo! I smoke all da stangs and 'maros round my way dawg!



But anyway, underdrive pulley, e-fan, decent set of headers, escape TB, and a tuner is a good place to start. Either that or buy a sports car as stated.
