Best bang for buck

I have a $200 I can spend on my truck and I want something that adds HP. What is the best mod as far as HP goes that I could get for my truck?

2002 4.0L manuel xlt

If you know how many HP the product adds could you list that as well

Thanks Jake

I think bang for buck a programer is the best. Pulleys are a good second choice. Cold air intake might be something to think about also.

they are just claim hp idk that you really get it

efan is suppose to free up some 5 maybe?
bama, seems like 17 or 20 i read once. might be off
exhaust maybe 5?

pullies im not sure
mac intake claims 10hp

i do know that there was a dyno sheet, stock truck ran like 180 on a dyno and after AEM intake and magnaflow exhaust he turned 201. not bad. but that is just one truck
