How much are you looking to spend?

There are lighter pullies, intake manifold spacers, lighter flywheels, engine tuners (URD makes a good one now that the APR-X1 is no longer available), different cam shafts, custom intake manifolds, etc. Just depends on how deep your pockets are.

$/hp, I think you'll find that a supercharger is more cost effective. That being said, a lot of the stuff I mentioned above can be used with a blower if you ever decide you want to go that route.

I have spent well over a grand for just about every NA mod possible for my truck, and I will be honest and say that it doesn't feel a whole hell of a lot faster unfortunately. Better top end, but definitely noticeably less power down low. If I were to do it again I would just drop the coin for the S/C and then spend this money for supporting mods after the big things are done. Take the money and put it into a savings account or invest it towards a S/C. I have seen used ones go for around $2300 and I know I have to be pretty close to that with all of my "power" mods. I'm positive that I have nowhere near the power of a boosted truck. Oh well, live and learn I suppose
