    *stay with the TBI and put perfomance/torque edel intake mani.,spacer plate,and performance air intake.

    Welcome to the site! As a pre-Vortec TBI owner myself, I had good luck with a throttle-body spacer, performance chip, aftermarket exhaust, and a performance chip. A better breathing air cleaner/filter would help as well. Currently I just turned the lid of my air cleaner upside down and it really does make a difference in performance!

    Unless you plan to make this a weekend toy, I would stay with the TBI. BIg gains can be had from the "ultimate TBI mods" bassically porting and polishing the tb. also the spacers have shown proven results. Longtube headers and a free flowing exhast will help tons, as will a better intake. once you get your bolton's have your truck tuned and you want regret it. if after all these things you still want more, look into a motor build. is it a stick or an auto? if its an auto a shift kit will help to beef it up and shave some tenths off your 1/4. a mild stall and rear end regear will also help things along.
