You the cheapest way to make a truck fast? Come on think about it....just get a friend or two to push it up a large hill and place it in neutral then roll down the hill.

Don't even need to turn the engine on to waste gas!

Sorry had to say it!

Remeber guys every decal you add gives 10 horsepower, racing strips are 20 and if you have two racing stripes you get a bonus and you get an extra 10 so two racing strips...20+20+10=50 additional horsepower.

Flux capacitor!!!! Might be a little hard to find plutonium but after 88 mph you can roll back your 1/4 mile time.

Pull the 5.9 and drop in a real Cummins!

If you want to get 600 HP out of your 5.9 then you need to throw a lot of greenbacks at it!
