Re: 4.8L Performance upgrade options

Tinus makes a good point: All "breathing modifications" (exhaust, gas flow, air filter) are MUCH more effective at high revs. In fact, normally most of these mods will actually reduce torque at lower revs, which is what you are actually complaining about. There are only three effective ways to signi...
