I'm new help with 89 5.7 hp boosts
I know this has probably been asked several times, but since i'm new maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I am getting a 89 suburban 5.7 v1500 and I'm trading my 99 f250 power stroke for it. I'm getting some cash on the trade also and i would like to know some simple ways to boost Hp. I want to put some of the cash back into the truck.around $1000 to $1500. I was thinking about an airaid intake and throttle body spacer , a hypertech coil pack with dist cap and rotor, plugs and wires.
i also like to know where i can find a chip or tuner the only thing i have found is a venom PCM (Performance control module). It already has a 3" flowmaster cat back exhaust, we have visual emmissions test.
I am going to miss my f250 but am excited about the suburban. with all the upgrades on my f250 I had approx. 460 hp and 750 LB torque. I'm not expecting that from my burb. Just add a few horses.
Thanks for any help.

That motor is a blank canvas, i would go with the edelbrock intake manifold and holley throttle body to start. Them yes the airaid intake, ACdelco rapidfire plugs, cap, rotor,and wires. And the MSD coils work great too.

I think i still have my holley down in the garage if you want it, come to think of it. Wanted to install it on my 90 K1500 and the motor blew up befor i had the chance.

Do i need to install a new intake or will it bolt right on.

It will bolt right up, all you have to do is splice the wires in for the 2 injectors but there color matched

I am getting the suburban on the weekend of the 17th. along with the money. If you would like send me a pm and I'll think about what i'm going to do. when i get the truck and money i can look you up. also let me know what you want for it. Any other suggestions on hp boost? also can you put a throttle body spacer under it?
