Okay....... next on the list!

Okay all... Just as an update, I have a 2006 4.7L. I have done the RC lift, tires, K&N intake and magnaflow exhaust. I have noticed that since the bigger tires, my transmission is even more confused than it was before. Meaning it searches for gears in my mountain/hills area. I've noticed that if I hit the tow/haul button, the tranny is much more solid and overall less sluggish.

i expected some power loss for the bigger tires which is okay with me, but I want a little of the power back. The magnaflow didn't make a vast improvement as I expected but does sound much better. I am not looking to spend a fortune so headers are out of the question....

I was thinking maybe a throttle body spacer and possibly a tuner. I've read all over this forum that most of the tuners are a complete waste of time. I also saw a post regarding an SCT tuner which is what I had for my diesel truck. The tuner was amazing with custom tunes but I called SCT and they do not make anything for the 4.7..... Any of you masterminds have thoughts or recommendations regarding the throttle body spacer or a tuner?? Am I just wasting my time and money by getting either? Advice please from those with actual experience with the products.... Thanks
