I'm a young man. I was wondering if there are any cheap tricks to add some horse power. Any tricks?

yeah i would have to agree, toyota and nissan both had 4.10 4.3x 4.56 and i think even 4.88 gears available in automatics, they atleast put a 4.10 as the lowest gear set. meanwhile weget a 2.3 with 3.73, and the similar sized toyota has 4.56+, in my mind every truck should come off the line with 4.10Ford was pretty stupid on their gearing in the 90's too, a regear might help more than anything. Especially if the tires are not the stock size.
My parent's had a '94 Explorer with 3.27 gears. The power was there (or so people say about the 4.0) but it was a gutless turd to drive. People say they are trucks and all that... trucks shouldn't have to downshift twice to drag its empty self up a mild hill to maintain 60mph. It wouldn't show my dying 2.8 Ranger with 3.73s much in a race either.
i assume this would work as its just like adding a leaf blower to the intake, which i have seen make improvements, also the air in the wheel well ought to be cooler to.
This is similar to how I did the snorkel on my Explorer...
