I spent a small fortune trying to get more power from my motor. It is a 4.0 but what I am saying still remains the same. When I went to 33's I did everything I could to get back to normal power.

Full Borla Exhaust
Perf Disti full ignition kit
Jet stage 2 chip
electric fan
K&N Cold Air Intake

It all cost a ton in the end. I'm sure it all helped, but nothing crazy noticeable. I finally had the money for an 8.8 so I regeared at the same time. Major difference!

Definitely worth the time and money to regear. All the money spent on the go fast goodies I probably could've ended up with a V8.

Lastly, what is this fifth gear you mention? LOL

Being in Dillon Colorado, your power losses are significant to begin with. I used to live in Vail.

HP loss= (9000) feet X .03 X HP at sea level (195) divided by 1000

You are losing about 52 hp from the lower barometric pressure.

Time for a turbo!
