First of all, welcome to the org! We have a ton of information here for you if you search around you'll probably find everything you need.

Second of all, typing in all caps is extremely obnoxious! We also have an acronym thread on here that explains everything...you'll get used to them.

Third of all, for a real answer you need to tell us what your truck is...year, engine, etc. Ditch that K&N and put in a 6637 (search). You have exhaust and some semblance of intake...that's about all you can do for cheap. Get a chip (custom tunes would be best...see Tony Wildman about that, for example). Past exhaust, intake, and chip there's not much more "bolt on" power you can get. Next you'd be looking at injectors, oil pump, fuel system, etc.

Get a custom tuned chip and enjoy for a few months...after you get used to that power, be ready to spend some money if you want more power

Another thing to consider is the fact that enclosed trailers, no matter how light, are hard to pull......especially at 80mph. Get a good pyrometer guage and a custom chip. I wouldnt recommend hauling at 80 mph for long periods, EGT's (exhaust gas temps.) are going to be way high and your engine wont last long if its lugging at that kind of speed. Diesel's are great...but not unbreakable

p.s. agreed, throw away the K&N filter

80mph pulling could have been limited based on your gearing also. Get gauges before any type of chip.
