    I have a 2008 gmc sierra. with the 5.3l. i want to add maximum horsepower without getting to deep into the engine. maybe adding gas mileage and the beautiful rumble of a classic muscle car

    first priority:
    exhaust, preferably long-tube headers back
    programmer/tuner/custom tune

    second priority:
    cold air intake
    throttle body spacer (highly debatable)

    after that you really start getting into the engine....

    FlowMaster Super 10 muffler, dumped over the axle for Rumble, custom tune from a programmer for hp gain (dependant) on foot control. A programmer will not provide much unless you are in the upper RPM range otherwise you will not experience much change. If you want better 0-60mph times or 1/4mi times a gear change is more helpful. As far as MPG goes, don't expect anything better than 1-2mpg increase. Cold Air induction is snake oil, JMHO.
