A little bit of power not much. but you will need to spend like 10buck. you can buy bbs for like 5 bucks and do a fuel pressure regulator shim. or you can do a 10k mod and some more little mods. For info on how to do them you can ask or look them up on this sit some guys have made realy good write ups on them. good luck man.

Put a pint of Lucas oil additive in every fuel tank(25+ gallons of fuel) then refill the pint container with gas and dump that in there. You'll get some giddyup, for a while.

You wont get a lot of power at all without spending money, gotta do an intake and exhaust, which costs money, then there is a resistor mod you can do, not too much

yeah, i think the best best are the resistor, maybe a fuel shim (dotn know much about what it affects), but round up a few bucks for an intake and to cut the cat and muffler. you can probably get scrap pipes from a local exaust shop cheaply and put them where your cat and muffler were. and i think the DIY intake is about $40 or $50.

I wouldnt recommend the fuel shim unless you want to have a fuel fountain coming out of your filter housing. Myself and 3 other friends had this same bad experience with this.

It increases fuel pressure and in my experiences increases it to much and causes the O ring on the filter cap to fail and shoots diesel fuel all over everything
