That was his interpretation of your "Take Off" subject and initial post. He thought you couldn't get any traction and were spinning your wheels.

Intakes made for your vehicle I think (since I don't know what year your truck is):

AirAid by Evergreen

Intense Performance

These run $150-$200

I don't know what gears you have now. If you have 3.55's then, the 3.92's will give you a little better take-off. If you have 3.21's now the 3.92's will be a world of difference. To change you'll need to go to a reputable rear end specialist. The cost, including installation, will be ~$600.

A TB would also help if you do the intake. Billet TB's will be $400+.

From your initial post, did you indicate you already have a good cat back exhaust system? If so, what kind is it?
