First thing is 4.56 or 4.88 gears and move to lighter alloy 17's.

Everybody has diffrent opinions on what makes them happy in a truck. Some people wanna climb rocks others want low 1/4 mile times. Either way start with making it breath better then exhaust better. Just my .02.

He indicated he wanted to street race. Should take it to track imo but its his choice.
4.56's or axle hitting 4.88's w/ lighter 17's would be a nice start. Then hopefully he figure out what he wants to do per his budget.

We can't help unless you set boundries. Gears are great, my first big mod will be 4.10s or 4.56s with some kind of LSD/posi unit. DSP/SC3865 would be big as well...this makes all the mods work on the truck.

I agree...the first major mod would be the gears.

with the Trinity you can custom tune for any major engine mods later.

As far as the motor...lots of choices here and you'll get lots of opinions. So, I won't offer mine except to say all motor seems to be the most reliable and cost effective way to go.
