Performance upgrade ideas?

Most likely this will fall on dead ears and ill get alot of use the search button but i just wanted to know were to go from here. I have a 2000 ranger 3.0 ext cab. I have an intake and flowmaster custom exhaust so far. I was wondering would it be better to get some headers probally JBA i hear thats best, or do i go for some pulleys and e-fan? Best bang for the buck you know. Im looking to get some more hp and fuel econmy if i could but for the most part hp. I plan on lifting it a bit in the future

electrical shouldn't be a problem for me as long as u do research and understand how it works before you start cutting your fine. Not sure if i want to do roller rockers. Proballly just bolt on stuff for now

the morana roller rockers are bolt on. they require no tapping. there is a lot of stuff to take on and off though to get to the stock roller rockers.
