Howdy and welcome to the forum. I drive a 96 and am in the same broke boat. Here is the route I took:

Self ported the throttle body, did the kegger mod, ported the holy crap out of the manifold and heads, ebay special stainless headers, your choice of CAI, Bosch stainless core wires and platinum plugs, thin LA style head gaskets for compression boost, gutted cat (or little secret) with the stock 2 1/2'' cut off the end of the cat and true 3'' pipe stubbed in its place, FM super 40 single in single out, then (not yet but soon, because holy bull droppings this thang is loud in the cab!!!!) 3'' from there out to the stock tailpipe location.

Hope this helps, and by all means, we like our truck porn here. Share some pics of her as you go. Bit of advice on the pics though.... Better to host them and link rather than straight load them here. For example, I use photobucket.
