Just a quick question for you all out there.....Why is my 99 rango 5.2 4x4 such a dog? ........and I mean a "DOG"........Dodge claims that the 5.2 has 235 horsepower, I believe, and the thing only has 101,000 miles on it. It is in near new condition with the 3.55 gears and absolutely will not break the tires loose; I can almost get them to break loose around a corner but thats it........It has MSD ignition, 50,000 volt coil , 10mm spark plug wires, timing advanced 4 degrees past stock setting, 92 octane pump gas, cat back flowmaster exhaust, I thought this would help but no dice (and with the A/C on, I might as well get out and run).......It's insane........My father has a 99 chevy 4x4 ext. cab with the 5.0 rated at 230 HP and he tears my @#$ up in a race (I mean, literally walks away from me like I'm not moving) and his truck has 215,000 miles on it..........I just dont get it.........Any advice would be helpful...........Please, I do not want to have to sell this vehicle because I cannot even merge into traffic at 12 miles per gallon........How can I make this thing SCREAM!!!!! without boring, stroking it, or spending $3,000.00 for a supercharger?
