    Well headers are the best way to go. Chips dont do alot for our trucks, they may even do worse than they say.

    What do you want to do? Lifts, Engine, Cosmetics, etc.

    Your talking in a general subject.

    Oh and Thank you for your service!!!

    You can start by getting rid of that throttle body spacer it does absolutely nothing.
    Go with headers or get the TRD s/c.

    Headers would do you good. A Dynomax muffler will yield some HP gains. :)

    ^^ Dito.

    With the 1GR using the ACIS feature, the air surge tank adjusts the runner length between the intake manifold and the TB, so lengthening it yourself isn't going to help a whole lot

    I vote TRD Boost, APR X-1, or some headers.
