318 a little sluggish
I just bought a 2000 dodge ram 4x4 1500 series with a 318 motor that just seems like it should have a little more ummph. I was wondering what I could do to get a little more power out of the motor without breaking the bank.

thanks in advance

Have you checked the tune? Is the timing set correctly? Is the timing advance working properly? Have you checked it for vacuum leaks? Is the exhaust plugged up? What shape is the tune up in? How many miles are on the engine?
