I suspect fireranger to pop in. A cai really does nothing for our trucks but look pretty and make noise. It "might" help with the aids of exhaust and headers and a tune, probably not noticible though. As stated, a supercharger is your best bet but they cost!. Your best thing to do is drop a 302 in her

yeah i just bought a cheaper set up purely for extra airflow, not for any power gain. Although it does help the tuning process like dixie said if you have access to a tuner. But nothing noticable. I would love to do a 5.0 swap.. just a dream in the wind though haha

I've heard alot of mixed opinions about those, i personally think they would do great in a extended cab ranger 4x4

Well take a 3,300 pound truck with little weight over the rear and a 4.10 lsd you could make a hell of a lot of smoke haha and it sure would get you to 100 quick
