Default 2.3L Performance

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger 2.3L DOHC. I am wondering if there are any performance parts available for it? Anyone know of any?

Default performance parts for a 4cyl ranger

get a k&n air intake which ever kind you like, the best one is the "Apollo Universal Closed Intake Systems" (is cheap and really good)... if your looking for high performance, visit http://www.esslingeracing.com/ they have good quality 4cyl performance parts.

As far as i can tell Esslinger only sells parts for the SOHC not the DOHC. I could be wrong though
