Default Massive Dodge Mud Rig, Need Suggestions.

Hello, a friend of mine that I live with built a 1997 dodge ram 1500 sport, extended cab short bed for mud runs. It's got right around 16 inches of lift with 38.5 boggers. Last year he swapped out the half ton axles with a set of dana 60's out of a 2500. The motor is pretty much bone stock. He has a custom exhaust setup, and is running no air filter. (air intake was rerouted to draw air from the cab)

Him and I have been shooting ideas back and fourth of what to do to get more power out of it. He wants to shoot for another 100 to 200 horse. Doesn't have a huge budget, but does have some money to throw around.

Some of the ideas include, V10 swap, 408 stroker, remote turbo, and a couple other misc things.

Any suggestions would be awesome on how to get that 360 to push harder, or of he would be better off doing a motor swap.
