The most basic is make it breath better and better fire. A cold air intake from K+N works well,bigger exhaust and good quality plugs and wires with a performance mod chip is a good start. Bullydog has a nice performance chip system.

get a cheap turbo kit and fabricate your own intercooler using copper tubing...get larger pistons and a breather for the engine... you need a better tranny and drivetrain for it...there are lots of choices, search the net...

Be aware that increasing significantly the horsepower of your engine may require changes to: the cooling system, transmission and rear axle, etc. I would seek professional advice as to what modifications and other changes to be made to your car. For milder increases this does not apply. Why do you need more HPs? Is the truck not doing well? Being a 17 year old vehicle it just me be in need of a motor rebuild due to normal wear and tear. A dyno test might be in order. Be aware that the rest of the drive train is in the same state of wear and tear and may need rebuilding or replacing as well. It might not be worth the effort. Thoughts to consider. OK? I wish you the best.

throttle body spacers are a waste of money on fuel injected engines, the air does not meet fuel until an instant before combustion. best thing if fuel economy is no issue- stroker crank, new rods and pistons, cam and a torque converter to match
