You have all the supporting mods for pulling power already - the rest is in the tuning. Ditch the superchips idea and get custom tunes from a reputable vendor that can meet your wants/needs. DP Tuner.

I see now that you have a "new air filter" in...is that in the stock airbox? If so, you should look into one of the many aftermarket air intake systems to help airflow. If you want low end grunt then you don't necessarily need the biggest intake system. Look around. There is a great vendor list available at the top of every page.

the air box is off, everyting, lid, box, ect. I bought a K&N air filter and kept the stock ait hose since it is connected to the engine. So it is fitted on with a peice of 4" OD PVC pipe connecting the two together so the clamps acutally clamp on something. some of the research that i did on the air intakes and such proved that with a smaller budget that was the way to go.

so i have been looking into adding some more power to the beast for some time now and i dont need a hole lot, like i said, more in the bottom end and higher torqe numbers.

the higher the hp/tq rating is on the program the more torque its going to have everywhere, especially down low.

thats what i was thinking but i was looking for something to increase numbers in the low end. I no they have tow/ haul tunes ect. but i just want to see what kinda options i have. A buddy of mine has got a TS he is trying out right now and he likes it so far, but had some probs. when he was pulling his trailer. He also was saying that he was also having his turbo surge sometimes when it shifted (auto). so like i said, im just testing the water to see what is out there and fits best for what i want.
Thanks Again,
Chris
