I'm going to get a cold air intake to start. Will I need to tune the computer for that?

unfortunately you have an OBDI computer which isn't tuner friendly. But with that said unless you are getting into exhaust and other performance mods you should be fine. Other wise you will need to get a new PCM tuned to the intake and exhaust set up you are running.

You are fine just doing a Cold Air Intake. How is the Project truck coming. Have you gotten the chance to do anything to it yet?

The only things I've been able to do is simple exterior mods like Halo headlights, I tinted the rear taillights... Some other stuff. I'm waiting until I have a little cash, then I'll start under the hood. I can post some pics of it if you all want.

Ya bring them on, I know most guys love the progress. And every one likes looking at a nice looking rig. That one thing we all seem to be short on. Is the truck you daily driver?

Not to steal the thread here, but I'm basically doing the same things and one of the comments caught my attention. So far I've added 4.10 gears to match my 35s, a CAI, and catback Flowmaster dual exhaust. Soon I'll be adding Gibson headers and an electric fan (maybe 2..is two worth it or will one be okay?).

Anyways, I noticed someone mention if you go too in depth you'll have to get a new PCM--should I be worried about that already? And if not, when does that become an issue?

I wish I had money to do that! Mine rolls on 33's. Too bad I'm an unemployed 16 year old. I'll post pics when it's not night time. Haha.

I keep trying to find a good day to wash the truck, but there are none, so you'll have to see a salt covered ram.
