Best parts to buy?

So I have a $500 spending limit as I got a Amazon gift card so everything must be on Amazon.

What performance parts should I buy to get the most out of my truck?

I am starting with a intake and exhaust. Going to install them this weekend. Those can be had for $500 on amazon.

Gauges should be your first purchase, this will give you a good baseline so you can see how future mods affect your powertrain. Can't help you on the Amazon thing, that's something you need to do for yourself.

Well so far for performance wise I have these in my cart.
Amazon.com: Bully Dog 221103 Powder Coated Steel Rapid Flow Induction: Automotive Amazon.com: Bully Dog 221103 Powder Coated Steel Rapid Flow Induction: Automotive
MBRP S6200P Turbo Back Single Side Exhaust System : Amazon.com : Automotive MBRP S6200P Turbo Back Single Side Exhaust System : Amazon.com : Automotive

I am interested in gauges or a monitor screen for my truck but I'm not sure which is exactly the right one to get or how to install it etc.

Can you guys also suggest me some more parts even if it is over $500 just so I can check them out.

There is no reason to buy a full 4 inch system. The factory restriction is in the muffler not the size of the plumbing, yet thousands of perfectly good systems are cut out every year. But if your stock system needs replacing you might as well go 4 inch because it can be had cheaper than a 3.5" system. Just replace the factory muffler with a Walker BTM or straight pipe it, and use the money some place else. The 3.5" will handle up to 400 ponies with zero issues.
I am not a fan of the "all n one" systems. Same goes with TV's that have a built in DVD player. When your boost gauge goes south now you either have to replace the entire unit, or you have to go without gauges and tunes while it is sent in for replacement or repair. I prefer separate components, but I will admit some of the "all n one" units do look cool. Hope this helps you spend your money, I will give you my address for any left over funds, lol!!!!
