'00 Silverado 5.3L Performance Enhancements?

Hi all,
I have an '00 Silverado with the 5.3L. I was wondering what options there are out there for some easy performance mods? I'm a horsepower junkie. I have Flowmaster DOR exhaust, but thats it. I have heard a lot of people swear by cold air intakes...not sure which brand is best. What mods do you all recommend that dont require TOO much install time? Not looking to put new cams in or anything, just some bolt-on mods. Thoughts?

I would recommend a SCT tuner from VMP Tuning with a custom tune. As far a cold air intake goes, just use a K&N drop in filter. These tuners do a lot more then you think they would, they also change the Torque management on transmission, this alone will give you a lower ET if your into that. VMP tuners are custom tune for your car or truck. I have one for my Mustang, I'm very pleased with it.

I've read good things about VMP tuning Fords, but nothing about there GM tunes. Theres several members on this site that have a DiabLew tune by Lew using a Diablo Preditor or Trinity and are very happy with his tunes.[/QUOTE

I havn't talk to anybody who has a SCT tune for their Chevy by Justin (VMP) but he say's he does them. I do know he is one top tuners in the country for the Mustang. When you call you get to talk to the man himself.
