94 3500 questions

619 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  natemoses13
I have a stock 5.9 in my 94 3500 and was wondering what I can do to increase my horsepower without spending a ton of money.
Also looking at having an engine break installed, curious how much that should cost.
The truck is getting harder to keep up with rust but the engine only has 130k and runs well so I'm hanging on with it, however, I feel I need to be careful how much $ I invest.
What is your opinions about keeping these older trucks road worthy.
I pull a 15k gooseneck for 12 hr road trips several times in a year.

Thanks for your opinions.

There is great advice to be had here. You would be wise to get some gauges, etc if you plan to increase power.

The available free/cheap mods make a huge difference. I feel that 300 ish hp is plenty for the average driver and makes driving these older detuned trucks much more enjoyable. Makes towing much easier too. Take care of your truck and it will take care of you. An upgraded clutch is a good use of money.
