Is it a turbo motor? If it is a 4" single exhaust would do good, if not then I'd run duals. A K&N would also work well, anything to get more air in and out of the motor faster. Turning the pump up is plenty safe as long as you don't crank it up too much, and watch your EGTs. A pyrometer would definately be a worthwhile investment, if the truck doesn't already have one.

I don't know if anyone's still watching this thread, but I modded mine with the Banks filter and cover, true dual exhaust with 2 chamber flowmasters, and a Banks TransCommand. It sounds awesome, shifts hard, and I noticed a decent "seat of the pants" improvement. It's still nothing like a turbo truck, though

If you've got the $$, I hear the Hypermax pulse turbo kit is pretty sweet.
