So far I have added a 2" lift kit with new control arms. I went from 205/17/R60s to 245/17/R65 A/Ts. I put a K&N performance filter in. A few esthetic enhancements including some Chris Kyle seat covers and an AR15. What performance enhancements can I make without breaking it? The only problem with this vehicle is power. What say you?

The power is what it is. Best you can do is reset the ECM and it will learn your style so it may become a little more responsive. Maybe change out the plugs too -- they're only good for 30-35,000 miles. Keep in mind this is only a 4 cyl (144CID) and its already putting out more than 1hp/CID. Even NASCAR only gets 2hp/CID.
