Default New and need ideas

Hey guys! I just got a 1998 Dodge ram 1500 and I'm looking to mod so I figured
I'd come here for help/advice. Right now I am more interested in getting more power to the wheels, the 5.2L magnum just feels a little under powered, I would really like it to take off. Was just wondering if anyone could add the best mods for about 1500$. Like what brand, where to get it ETC.. How much power am I looking at if I add a full exhaust, intake, chip?

look around and youll find plenty of threads like this askin the same thing. but you can get exhaust cheap, $200 for headers through summit racings, $150 or so for a catless y-pipe through jegs, you can port and polish your heads, you can do the throttle body mod, buy the FI airgap intake from hughes for $600, buy the 390 strocker kit from hughes

I cant post for some reason but i got a 97 dodge ram 1500. I was going to put on flowmaster 44 super series muffler and gut the cat. Does that sound decent? I want it loud but a good kind of loud.
