Hello and welcome to the site!

Have ya done anything to yet?
First basic mods are gonna be intake, tuner, and exhaust.
I made my own intake, Black Mamba

I have a catback exhaust, no muffer. dual tips out the back.

There are a ton of different ways you can incrase power. It really just comes down to how much you want to spend.

I went with the air intake, supership, and magnaflow high flow cat first, then moved on to pistons, rods, and cylinders and headers, then pulleys, not a whole lot left to do unless you wanna cam or supercharge after that.

I am running a Superchips 3715. If you have more than basic bolt on mods I would go with a SCT tuned by Hemifever. They are custom tuned to your truck and your additions.

Cool, thanks, no I just have basic bolt-ons like CAI etc. What gains did you see with chipping?

surprised no one said "Gears". don't know what you're running currently... but if you got 3.55s get some 3.92s or 4.10s. or if you really don't care about MPGs, get some 4.56s. I've got 3.55s and i sooooooooooo want to put some 3.92s ... maybe 4.10s. i don't need tons of towing power, but 3.92s would make a heck of a difference.

i know it's not increasing engine output, but it sure makes it easier to get out of the hole and lot quicker. if that's what your after.

The 5.9 O/R package in 2001 came with 4.10s from the factory so I'm set there! But that also explains my 12mpg.........
