Anything in particular that you are looking for or just general recommendations? Just start with the big three....cold air intake, exhaust, and a programmer. All of these are readily available for your truck. The programmers for your year provide excellent gains. I bet if you combine that with the intake and exhaust you will feel a huge difference. There is a dyno sheet for your truck (maybe an automatic) somewhere on the Superchips forums if you care to search for it.

Nice to see ya got a wrist shaker wish I woulda. As many of us say to other the big 3 exhaust intake programmer although a programmer would do less for you seeing that you have a manual tranny already

Wow that must be a nice setup with a manual! Agreed with ^^ you won't benefit from any transmission upgrades from a tuner, but you will still get huge hp and torque gains. I think for your year superchips adds 50hp and 55ftlb of torque, other tuners (like diablo sport) should be comparable. I love my superchips but most seem to prefer the diablo sport on this forum. Intake and exhuast like said above, but the tuner is best bang for buck. APS makes a nice torque converter, I am going to be getting this soon, I haven't found anyone else that uses it. What gearing do you have now? Everything else gets expensive...
