Maybe we could turn this into a sticky, but i used to own a 97 Ram 1500 4x4 and it had the 5.9. I was on another forum that they showed some free mods done. One that i can remember was removing the silencers from the throttle body, does anyone else have some free mods??

I have to ask... what are throttle body silencers? What benefit do you get from removing them?

To get a noticable increase in AC performance, insulate the low pressure AC tube under the hood. That's the big one from the accumulator to the compressor.

Are you using foam piping insulation, like I would use on an exposed water line in the house?

That sounds like a good idear. I May try that on mine. I haven't tried the A/C yet, but really miss the old freon systems.

"Silencers" are in the air box system! All the mfgrs do this so that the passengers in the vehicle do not hear the air rushing into the carb or throttle body!
Usually they are a baffle system that restricts the airflow, like the baffles in a muffler on the exhaust system.
Changing over to a freer-flowing intake filter, with a cold-air intake is what they speak of ---- but don't fall into the trap of the K&N system if you like your engine and want to keep it for a while.
AND if you have a fuel-injection system, they don't like oil-wetted intake filters, since they screw up the MAF sensor!
GM has said they will void warranties on engines that have been converted to them! Be advised, you decide!!
