I want to add the Injen cold air intake as well as the Banks exhaust. Will adding these two get me back to where my power was before adding the wheels and tires?
Your not going to lose any power at all. Your engine is gonna make just as much as it did before.
depending on the overall height of the wheel/tire combo, assuming its taller than stock combo, you will lose low end tourque because you have effectivley raised your gear ratio (lower numerically).
But the plus is you will lower cruising RPM and gain MPG.
Since there doesnt appear to be any aftermarket ring and pinions available for the titan, changes ratios isnt an option.
CAI and exhaust will give you a performance boost, but its in the mid to upper rpm range, not down low, so you will actually probably lose more low end tourque with those mods as well..
Who give a crap? It aint no race car. Put the **** on there and drive it!
