What mod to do?

I have about $350 to spend and was wondering what mod I should do. My truck is stock except a Bullydog triple dog. It has 140k with factory head studs, stock EGR and oil cooler to the best of my knowledge. I just got the truck two weeks ago and didnt think it came with the BD downloader but I found it under the seat today while cleaning it up. My first thought when I found it was to return to stock and buy an SCT but after reading on here I would still have to get it reflashed at a dealer before I could load the SCT and dont have the money to do both. So any suggestions?

1) Get a 5" exhaust
2) Air intake
3) Upgrade sound system
4) Other suggestions

Im at a lost and dont know what to do. Any help would be appreciated

If you return the truck to stock you don't have to get a fOrd reflash. I'd look around and get a used live wire first, it will serve as a tuner and gauges.

I read on here that BD puts something into the computer to allow you to not use another programmer until you reflash. So this is not true? I also read that returning to stock after BD the truck runs bad until a reflash is done.
