Turbo, stay out of boost get pretty good mpg, spool the turbo get the hp when needed then to cruise to get the mpg. That's what I do and works great. You could also install like 50 wet shot of nitrous hit the button to get the hp then when the bottle runs out prepare to spend 30-50 bucks on refill for a 10gallon tank lol

if you want to make respectable power, you definitly need to get boosted.

throttle body spacers are a waste of money, they do nothing, and after all the arguing with jp7 that i have done, you know i did some research of my own and found that he is correct about cai, that is why i am having a custom tune made, by php, for my f150 for my cai

100% right, i have a 94 header on my 2.5..it has the place for the egr and a o2 bung.....the bung is in a differnt spot though,but it still works.
the o2 wires bearly reatch but it still works.
