Question Need some more powwer

I have a 2001 ram, I know this truck was very competetive before, but I believe most the upgrades have been taken off, I know it has an ATS manifold, I believe an ATS head, and boost fooler, the turbo on this trick is VERY LOUD, but appears to be a stock holset. My question is if anybody knows this truck, what it had on it, or something I could do to affordably get some power out of it and make it competetive in some local pulls

Sorry about my spelling

If anybody knows this truck? Could be one of a million, there are lots of bombed trucks out there. A bigger list of mods and some pics can help to identify a truck. Doesn't sound like there is that much done to it right now. Which means a lot can still be done to get some more power out of it. What kind of power are you looking for? And if you're going to hook to a sled, upgrade the drive train.

The profile pic is something different. Go to User CP and click on Edit Avatar and upload your pic there. The profile pic is when you click on somebodys name and go to their profile it has that pic there.

That truck doesn't look familiar So i can't say what it might have done. Most boxes incorpoate a boost fooler, so the only reason to buy just a boost fooler is for the oversized injectors without a box. So I'm guessing just that, it probably didn't have a box on it. Get some gauges see what temps you are running and how much boost and that may provide a little insight as to how much fuel you have. Also make sure it is the stock turbo, it will say what turbo it is on the tag on the comp housing.

Personally I would throw on an edge Comp or a juice w/Attitude (which incorporates all the gauges). Also if you want any kind of decent power get rid of that turbo if its a stocker. Anything is better than that HY even an HX35 eould be better.

Turbo

Well I checke the plate, guess what its missing. Actually it may ring a bell to some people, this truck belonged to Brad Ingram's father-in-law, When i talked to brad he said it was a holset turbo, but not the original
