    I own a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 4X4 4.3L V6 and was looking to increase Torque and Throttle Response? Maybe Fuel Economy with one of those magnetic fuel savers or a tornado?

    I currently have a flowmaster 40 seriers muffler with dumps, airaid intake, poweraid tb spacer, hypertech programmer and a fuel at home tips. I was wondering although I know about engine swap and forced induction, What products were out their to increase torque and throttle response when playing in the mud.

    I often go off road and would like any advice on products or tips to turning my V6 into somewhat of an off-road machine.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    *I have engine swap and forced induction coming in a few years once I graduate.

    dont waste your time with either one of those 2.

    if you want incresed mileage, get a set of headers and an intake, you will get a noticeable power increase as well.

    then if you want more power, you could get a hypertech programmer, it will give you more power and better mileage but at the expense of having to run 91 octane gas
