This is my problem i have pretty small budget but i want to upgrade the horse power on my 1997 Ranger 2.3L. If anyone can give me some tips on what will actaully help out i would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me.
Intake and exhaust, not necessarily in that order. the biggest gain I had before the computer was the exhaust. and removing restrictions from the intake.. after that when my power steering pump exploded (yes exploded long story) I yanked it to replace it and discovered that the truck gained all sorts of pep, so i never replaced it.
above all this all I can say is what I tell everyone, CLEAN your throttle body and do a good solid tune-up then start the mods..
will installing throttle body spacer increase speed off the line or not sorry if these questions are common knowledge but i am just starting to work on cars and trying to get as much info as i can
I used one once, on another truck. it made no discernable difference then again if I remember correctly the spacers are generally used for Carburetor and CFI (central fuel injection (injectors in the throttle body)) not MPI like the other truck. although if you get one with a spiral pattern I hear they can boost fuel economy.
