Yes definitely, already had full ford exhaust, i put the rims on as well as antenna and black emblems. Been looking to pull the trigger on the JLT/BAMA cai and tune combo

Any other suggestions? how much am i looking to get into with either a turbo or super charger? Has 52k miles is it even worth it?

Gears too and you'll have a nice setup

Stay low boost on either and tune very conservatively and you'll be fine on stock internals. But start forging if you plan on getting close to stock hp max.

Depends, turbo is more expensive yet more efficient.
Superchargers are in the 3-6k range.
Depending what kind and size sc you get.

How big is the difference between 3.55s and 3.73s? Someone told me theres a chance you can lose torque with gears... is there any truth to that?

You will gain more torque but lose some top speed and do the opposite with lower number gears.
There's a good thread on here going real in depth in gear ratios.

Gears don't add torque, feels like they do
