Default 3.7 looking for mods

I am wanting to get a little bit more get up and go (hah from this v6)
I currently just have a drop in k&n filter. What would be the best things to put? I had 40 series on there. But got a bit ricey. Deided to switch to a 24" glasspack. Would a CAI be the next best thing to throw money at? Or should i just save my money

Programming, gear change, converter change (if you have an auto). You can get get custom cams made, but then you will need custom tuning to go with it. Not alot of aftermarket (or even factory) support for these engines. But it is the baby brother to a 4.7, so alot of things that can be done to one can be done to the other. Check out airram.com

alright. Well this one was my first truck and parents are wanting me to keep it. Ive thrown tons of money at it but they find it all a waste of money. I saw the forum on programers for the 3.7 . but 400 is a little steep for me. Is there any good ones for a decent price?
