Baker Power Pack

We have a 2000 Jayco Class C (Ford 350 V 10) and lack power to enter freeway or climb hills. Anyone ever install a Baker Power Pack? Did it help? Any less expensive ideas to improve pick up?

I suspect you means "Banks" power pack.

There are other ways to improve performance, but bear in mind, you're basically driving a fully loaded (weight-wise) cube van, it's never going to handle or accelerate like a 'normal' vehicle.

There are two main issues, the first is air flow in the engine, fresh air in & exhaust out, improve that and you'll see a big difference. The other other is the engine control programming, that's easy to do, plug in a programmer and go, big gains in engine performance. But bear in mind it all has to balanced. Lots of 'air in' capacity but no additional exhaust capacity will do little. Likewise, a bigger exhaust system with the factory air box won't help much either.

All in all, I doubt you could get the gains you'd get from a Banks Power Pack by picking other components yourself for much less than the cost of the Banks package.
