Questions about performance parts

I'm thinking about doing some modifications to my 2000 Lightning. I already have a flowmaster exhaust and i'm just looking to get some more power quickly and easily. i've been told that a computer programmer, air intake, and pullies are the way to go to get power easy. Any suggestions about what to do or what products to buy would help alot. Thanks

Pat

I just did what you are wanting to do to your truck.I have a 2000 lightning I just bought in April. I think If you have the money there is a good combo package at RPM performance. I found the site after I bought parts one at a time. You will save hundred dollars or more buying the combo package.I have k&n kit, 4 pound lower pully,
glass packs, and Superchips tune.I got 13.56 at 102 mph in the 1/4 mile.

Here's some info about the company Milwaukee recommended....

First, look at the number and frequency of complaints they have with the BBB:

Next... here's a look at some at some of the people who got burned:

http://www.modularfords.com/forums/p...ad.php?t=22083
http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/archiv...x.php/t-123742
http://www.3.8mustang.com/forum/prin...d.php?t=103596

I suggest you stick with any of this site's sponsors. If you're going to be at the FTE National Rally next week MotorHaven.com will have boost pulley's at a huge discount, and tuners as well.

I have gotten stuff from them too. (Motor Heaven ) but when I wanted to change my lower pulley they didnt have the belt for it. And when I asked what size it was he couldnt tell me. I got a Super Chips tuner from them (MH). With no Problems. For RPM they sent me parts with no problems. I am sorry if I am not allowed to suggest other web sites. If that is true.I will not .I think every store has complants some more than others. I had no problems with them. But this is the day of the internet so it is good that the buyers beware.

Skip the CAI, do the air box mod instead. Save your money for a SBTB, 4lb lower and a custom tune. Both SC and the Predator make hand held flashers that are good for moderately modded lightnings. Just my .02
