First off let the truck breath better with a good induction and exhaust. A pully kit would be a good power adder also. Or just get a supercharger.

i agree, make it breath better and a good induction. make sure you match your exhaust size with your plans to go forced induction. you want all the power you can get.

Start with this,

http://www.bamachips.com/store/index...5d0592fdc51761

It will add about 10hp and running 87, and you can get higher with premium.

you have an intake and exhaust.

You can ditch the throttle body spacer, I don't think those have ever been shown to add HP.

After that there are e-fans, better plugs and wires, coil packs, underdrive pulleys, and last but not least the Explorer Express Supercharger that rings in at $4k.

The two best bang for you buck mods is going to be a x-cal 2 and a underdrive crank pulley. Niether one requires high rpms to give you the improvment either. Intake and exhaust really ought to be held off unless your spending time over 4000rpms.

Me.. I'm a nut and can't ever have enough torque. So I have them all.
