Intake, Throttle body spacer, Programmer, new plugs and wires, headers, exhaust.  Cheap and effective.

Also, if you're 5.7 is getting up there in miles you might want to keep it stock and spend some cash on a new motor or rebuild instead.  Once you start adding parts to a high mileage motor you're asking for trouble.

It just rolled 240,000 km. But Ive aquired a 383 for it so Im going that route instead. Thanks for the input though.

Yes, I would move to Texas or Cali in a second to get into the scene as a career though!  A guy can only dream....
