IMO I would spend on the intake MAF, Inj, Throttle body & exhaust. Im Sure if you shopped around you would get most things for that sort of cash your willing t spend.

First thing I ever did to my ute was a chiptorque chip, yeh it was a lil better but nothin to brag about.

Max, I am first to agree that these utes are slugs.

I dont see any big benefit unless you enlarge the intake side. I am guessin that the maf and t/b are stock (disregard if they arnt). You wont get too much out of her if shes chokin.

I have done all the above, and a lil more and I dont think I have hit 250 yet.

Bud, theres plenty to spend cash on but the improvements of chips etc IMO are best when other mods have been done first

what kind of chip?
