Default 03 perf help

I just got an 03 1500 4x4 and want to do some performance work on it. only thing done is they took the air box off and put a cone filter on it. Right now im looking and a K&N CAI, Fastman TB, Flowmaster 44 series turn down, and a programmer. I want to put headers on it w/o cats but can only find outragously over priced shorties. As far as a programmer i want what will give me the most performance and MPG gains. i don't want to tear into the motor just keep it all bolt ons. If ya'll have any other mods i should look into please lemme know. and i will possibly be looking at gears also. either 3.73 or 4.10

Looks like your on the right path . Check on Pacesetter and see if they have headers for ya . I paid $250.00 for mine and their long tubes also .

Check with ARH here on the forum on what they may have in a set of longtube headers. I agree...you are on the right track here.

From what I've read, superchips and diablo are the two most common, not sure which one is best, superchips posts exact gains on there site though. Also banks has a programmer available for 4.7s now from what I was told
