2.8L colorado 2006

Hey guys, I have a 2006, 2.8L Colorado. I'm looking to put some performance parts on her. I have a friend who has a jazzed up mustang and think he's a BA in it. I'm looking to upgrade my colorado. Can anyone point out a list of parts to get. I'm looking at turbo chargers, shift kits, cold air intake, ect. Anything I can do to get my little 4cyl running fast and looking good. Thanks for the help.

Hello and welcome. Hard to haul a yard of stone in a Mustang. Hard to beat a Mustang in a four banger truck. Look at a CAI and cat-back then a tune. No barn burner. But it will make a difference.

if exhaust get the MBRP Turn down or the side exit if you have a single cab i would get someone to bend you a pipe from the cat to the muffler because the one it comes with is too long and it will hit the axel if your not careful and it rattles.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the responses. Also anyone know what type/model of a turbocharger I could throw on it and what other parts I would need to make it happen? I'll probably have about $9000 total to spend on performance parts, and probably about $4-5000 in cosmetics.

Question, if I do throw a V8 in it, will it pass emissions? I live in IL and we have strict emissions and this model is setup for a 4cyl in their computer.
