Default More Performance

What can I do to get more power for my ranger?
The cold air intake helps but I want more. A chip maybe?
What are some suggestions?

a 4.0 is only gonna make so much power, and that isnt alot, your best option is a 5.0 is cheaper then all of those mods listed above and also has more aftermarket support for power

I have those plus aftermarket heads (thicker and ported/polished) and I have plenty of power to my 32s with only 3.27 gears
