okay im a definite newbie to the trucking world. i dont know too much about engines but i do want to upgrade. im running a 1985 dodge dakota with a 3.9L V-6. i am running a little low on the power and the acceleration is a little dead to put it simply. i want to konw a few cheap ways to upgrade the engine. i dont want to go full-out because it is just an old beater with a big engine. but i would like a little sumthin under my hood to brag about. so if anyone could help me i would very much appreciate it.

are you sure about that? they only started making dakotas in 87, not 85......

btw, if its pre-92 then you have the pre-mag engine, and the only real options you would have for performance would be to get you a v8 and swap it in, as there isnt really a aftermaket for the non-mag 3.9
