Yes...pluck the 2.2L 4-banger and swap in a better powertrain. Or better yet, just buy a new vehicle.

The most practicle thing to do is a basic tune up. Make sure you are getting the most out of it with proper maint.4980

Bolt on a cheapo nitrous kit and call it a day. When the bottle runs out your back to the "old days" in terms of power....but as long as there's juice in the bottle that little turd of a truck will be blowing it's wheels off in a frenzy of tire smoke. The more the better....the bottom end is tough as nails.

Check out Ebay for a 50 or 75 shot. Any more and you might burn a hole in a piston or chuck a rod.

Dude I have one as well been askin the same question on top of what I've allready done to it bottom line I pass the new mustangs like cheddar , it eats toyota (yodas) dayly , problems it over heats so it has to be above the speed limit , flow masters added if two u will add 30 hp I cold air intank 15hp more , gears hell you get the picture . Just cause it's a small pick up doesn't mean its a turd can go anywhere with it fit into any place that big lifted trucks can't btw swamps them but a nitro might cause it to blow up it's a damn carburetor dude not a jet , old school style so same set up as a old muscle carb so bottom line is do a routine maintain by the book buy the book to even improve your knowlege , change the timing belt and tork it to the books specifications it love to loosen up so be on that
