    87 octane chip

    the next mod looks like its gonna be a chip. I was thinkin either the diablo or superchip. Now my only gripe is about fuel. Here in Cali fuel prices are nothing short of insane for even regular fuel and theres no way that im gonna pay nearly 2 bucks for a gallon of premium gas. So my question...

    31X10.5 + Eagle 589's

    I was wondering if anyone was using the 31x10.5 BFG All terrain T/As mounted on the 15x8 eagle 589? Will the tire stick out? Im mainly concerned about stuff flinging up and im not to happy about putting fender flares on if i dont have to. any help is appreciated. Also, anyone with this setup...

    thats correct. the kkm isnt legal everywhere. i know its not legal here in cali. But ive also heard that the installation of the K&N is much easyer and straightforeward than the kkm. I can vouch for the k&n because i installed it.....and yes, it is quite simple.

    Intake Comparisons ?'s

    Many people on this site swear by the KKM. I dunno about the APC, it seems kinda sketch to me. Basically you have three options in intake upgrades...the KKM, the K&N FIPK, or even just drill your airbox. Many people here swear by the KKM and I'm sure its awesome. I use the K&N cause the KKM...
