Default 2008 XL 2.3 More Power?

other than a worthless cold air, is there anything else that can up the power on a 2.3 with an auto?

chips perhaps?

Nothing that would be worth the cost. As far as I've heard you might get a little boost with a performance tuner or just super or turbo charge it.

I agree with gears, but that just helps out the bottom end of the take off. I suggest turbo. There is one sucessful turbo duratec ranger. Another one on the way. More info from people that actually know stuff at turborangerforums.com

get out and run! lol J/K I don't think there is much to do other than a turbo. Its a 4 popper so it would be easy enough to put one on, even if not a bolt on. With the proper tools you can fabb up anything to make it work.

I thought once on ebay I saw a t3/4 turbo kit for like $500 or so

Ebay turbo kits are missing tons of stuff that you need to turbo an engine. They are however a good deal for what they do have. The turbos are the cheapest route you will find. You can get a 4cyl turbo for 140.00 shipped to your door. Kits don't have injectors, or a tunning device, or fuel pump, or regulator, ect, ect..
