    I would just suggest a set of headers, high flow cat, a good flowing muffler, and intake. I would also look into a good computer reprogramer. If you are going to throw in a set of lower gears, that is going to kill your fuel economy. As always, this is just my opinion...

    I would go with a Magnacharger supercharger, starts amking power and torque from the hit of the throttle. There kit includes a programmer to retune the trucks computer.

    x2 on the exhaust modifications and tuner if you haven't already. The supercharger will run you over $5,000 and I doubt you want to trade the truck in any time soon. If you don't care about MPGs all that much, upgrading the gears would help; 4.10s or 4.56s if your truck has the 3.73s. My '03 2500HD 6.0 came with the 4.10s.
