    Ok...this is a good start- Maybe a little bit about what your goals are...You want a powerful towing rig...or a street machine??


    The more info you can give the tech wizards...the better crafted your answer will be...

    yeah if you do not choose the force induction route, intake/header/exhaust/urd maf should show some reasonable gains
