Tuner and custom tune to start, that way you get it paying for itself quickly through mpg gains. It's one of the few mods that can do that ... and of course the more fuel costs the faster you recover your costs on the tuner and custom tune. Don't just get the handheld ... get the custom tune, as well. Every truck is unique and you'll get your biggest improvement if you tune for your truck's unique characteristics.

It does all depend on your price but personally I went with a drop in filter and airaid mit to go with my custom tune from BlackBear. The two popular custom tunes are BlackBear and Diablew. Both have great reviews, I just finished up with mine and it made a hell of a difference. The drivability is much better and you get a good power boost. I wasn't even able to get a chirp out of my tires now when I stomp on it off the line they will spin for a couple seconds.2004 GMC Sierra SLT 6.0L 4x4
