The big 3. CAI, tuner, cat back exhaust. You may want to look into headers as well.

Superchips will work with headers. Jba and Gibson both sell headers for your truck. Sct will work and is great for bigger mods. But will only work with some 03's

If you want torque, you need some gears. Right now you have 3.21's .. something like 3.92 or even 4.10's would help you out a lot. Gears are around $200 and a master install kit is around $100. Then whatever your local shop charges to install. Its a bit pricey but well worth it.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Www.airram.com

While your there you can see a few other things for your 4.7l
You want to feel night and day difference go with the 08intake and adapters.

The 08 intake manifold is plastic as well but flows much better.
