Hey all, I'm a newbie to the forums. So here goes a nice little book for ya.
I have an 01 ex with 95k (bought it in august with 81k) I've changed all the lights, put the AEM intake on her, and a dynaflow (or dynamax??) 4" ss exhaust on it. (plus, I drove it strait to the garage, and had every fluid in the thing changed or flushed, and every filter changed) My next thing is a programmer, and am curious whats works best on these?
I made the mistake of not knowing better, and bought a bully dog chip from a guy that was hauling carl edwards race car to show it, and when that got installed, it fried my computer. (Bully dog says no way, but I had my mechanic do it, so I know I didn't frig things up, and he swears he did it all right) It's still under my dash now because if I pull it, I'll have a nice hole where the knob is. A $900 visit to the dealer, and my tuck is back. I assumed the chip was stackable, and was planning on that, but I don't think I'll be going the route of a chip again.
My goal is max mpg, but I also want the power too. (especially after driving my mechanics insane dodge) Whats the best bang for the buck out there?
My second question is, suspension. I saw a set of 35/13.5/20's at the local off road shop, and think they'd look great on my ex. Whats the minimum lift that I need to have clearance? Is it possible to just go with a shackle lift so I don't lose ride quality, or is there another package that will give me lift and better ride? I'm not an avid off roader, so I don't need a whole lot of travel, but I'm also not afraid of going down the trails either, so it can't be too tame.
Any help would be appreciated, and thanks in advance.
