I had no intention of trying to improve this vehicle when I first bought it. But after driving it for the first 2mths I was curious about what else I could do to improve its performance and make it more fun to drive. Just adding a K&N intake to it, the results were undeniable. Since then I have added a Magnaflow exhaust system, changed the 3.42 to 4.10 and added belltech anti-sway bars to name a few. This truck is now Super Awesome. It is the best 4cyl truck out there. Not even import cars with modifications can beat it. One day I plan to drop a larger engine in it. Then I will really be kicken!!
The 2.8l engine is the strongest and larges 4cyl I have ever known....well until 2007. The transmission is the best truck in its class for speed shifting.
PUT A KEY ENTRY ON THE PASSANGER SIDE DOOR ALREADY!!!!!!!
