4.0 engine mods?

I am trying to figure out what engine mods i can do to get maximum hp/tq gains. I have already added flowmasters, AEM bruteforce CAI, and a superchips flashpaq tuner. I am still thirsty for more power though, I plan on putting HFC's and a 3" pipe from the headers back on soon, along with new headers. what else can i do to give me more power? Thanks guys

Not much gain, there isn't a whole lot of power adders out there for these engines

Over $400 for the 5 piece combo.

Thats disappointing to hear. I know supercharging it would give you a pretty good hp gain. but it also will kill my gas mileage. worth a shot though

nope. The best engine mod is a 5.0 swap
