I would recommend having an experienced professional do all the internal mods if you deecide to go that route. I don't know what ratio our roller rockers are, 1.6 or 1.7 maybe? But you should get a cam to match the rollers, and maybe upgrade the valve springs while you're there. But that's a lot of money for labour. Exhaust upgrades you can do on your own, and it makes your truck sound fierce!

unless you have about 1000 dollars to spend on roller rockers alone you might as well give up on rollers. My suggestion since i have the same engine, is start out with intake and headers, you are almost SOL on custom tuning diablo has some custom tuning but i wouldnt go diablo unless you got a cam. Longtubes, Intake, Duals, and Superchips should give you a nice gain. A sharadon stage III valve body works extremely well with superchips and can knock off a few tenths from your 0-100 time.

First thing I would buy would be a cat-back flowmaster exhaust. All stainless piping, cuts out cats, but with ports to replace oxygen sensors. Good for power and sound.

Then if you have any money left over a programmer should help.
Thankx carscars11 for this thread and everyone else for some great ideas. I got about $10,000 to spread out into 3 HEMI's. Was going to put most of it into the 03 RAM2500 on exterior mods. I'll drop that idea; and go back to Performance gains. You guyz got me runnin' in 2 directions....This site is the best!
Thankz
