DIY 6637 intake, 4" turbo back straight pipe, pyro/boost/trans temp gauges, 6 pos chip of your choosing (PHP, Beans, TW, DP Tuner, etc.) and that should wake her up.

For the intake go to RiffRaff, they have the 6637 filter for $34 shipped with the clamp (make sure you get the clamp.) As for the the gauges it depends on what brand you want. I personally recommend ISSPRO EV2's. Just shop around and see if you can find a good price. They are expensive though, but by far the best. Again for the chip, any reputable tuner will work. I recommend PHP or Beans, but Tony Wildman is good, DP tuner, anyone will work just do your research and go with one. You won't be disappointed.

Oh yeah, that'll def do the trick. First, though, I would make sure that the truck is running 100%. Check all the fluids, replace gaskets as necessary, etc... Then I'd go with Tony Wildman (that's what I'm getting).
