    Welcome to the site. Most start with an intake, exhaust and either a programmer or custom tune. There are a lot of options depending on how much you want to increase the performance and how much you are willing to spend. Good luck. Got any pics of your new ride?

    another overlooked upgrade thats fairly inexpensive is swapping the underdrive pulley, and if you got the time to down the truck long enough slap in a cam before you get it tuned......after the mods listed so far in this post you'll have to start dropping larger amounts of cash
