I'd go get an intake, exhaust and a programmer for it. Those basic, best bang for the buck mods will help.

I think the superchips for your year adds 50hp and 55ft lb of torque (max gain). That's probably the best of any model.

Second the Superchips Flashpaq. I ran across the dyno sheet for the second gen 4.7 on the Superchips forum a while back and it's impressive. Only drawback is you will have to run atleast 91 octane in it for those max gains. You might see a small mpg boost though.....maybe. I saw .5-1 mpg increase on my first gen. Good luck!
