Question Cheapest performance?

Hey guys,
I'm still working on the body of my truck... its coming along. But My next question is.. where do I go from here with performance? Im on a budget, and want to get as much performance as I can without going overboard on cost. I installed a DIY intake, and a 4" exhaust... The downpipe is next. What is my best bet for the next few items to buy that arent overly expensive?

What is 'overly expensive?'
Cause you could always do a DIY electric fuel setup.

Electric fuel. The OBS use a cam shaft actuated fuel pump. Has a slight lag in boosting fuel flow.
Electric fuel is constant and better.

See above.
Basically, you get an electric fuel pump. One off of a SD is a good pump. Put it in line somewhere before the motor and just set it up how you want.
There are various write ups on the fuel systems.

Yes it does. It's relative. It'd be like a Banks sticker or something like that.
