got plenty of power... aint been stuck (yet... knock on wood)... could use some more RPMs, i aint done a GSK yet on it...

need to work up a custom trans cooler, seems thats the one thing that likes to get warm out there.

also could use a little bit quicker air (turbo lag kinda sucks with my current setup) and a little wider tires..

but its all money, and im hurting right now. if i had $$$ to build the truck how i want to eventually, it would be a monster out there...

i dont blame you. i think my truck is going to stop going wheeling for a while until i can get it running good and then actually have the funds to fix it if something goes wrong rather than break and then wait til payday to fix it... :eek:
