Better exhaust. Down pipe, free flowing muffler and no cat.
Get a custom tuned chip. They can reburn onto the TS style chip you already have and it's safer and more efficient tuning.
Also, you SHOULD get gauges to monitor things if you're running a chip.

ditch the stock air box for a 6637 filter too...cheap and better air flow

Do you want cheap or big power, if your thinking turbo then get some injectors with it, I don't see the point in stage 1's, get 2's or bigger if you ever plan on turbo, you don't have a mod list in your Sig, so do an after market intake or a DIY 6637 mod, get some custom tunes, hpop, head studs, valve springs, list keeps going, start with the support mods, move up to big power adders

Read it before, got into something else, read more post and it said to get an intake, so back off and add help not try and belittle, it also says he is chipped, that idea has been reiterated as well.

^^^^^ Plus, "full cold air intake" doesn't say much. After all, a 6637 is NOT a cold air intake. Is there even a true cold air intake, one that pulls the air exclusively from outside the engine compartment, for our trucks? Would it be an improvement over the 6637 anyway? For all we know, the OP may have a wheezing little cone air filter like you'd see on a riceburner, or a turbo-dusting K&N. Fifty was very specific about the one style of filter (6637 and its cousins) that are established as being both safe for our trucks and pulling in enough air to help performance (esp. when coupled with an improved exhaust).
