I would suggest an X-Metal Gen X shifter and the K&N drop in filter is suppose to get you the same gains as a CAI. So unless your into Bling, just go with the drop in. But if you are into Bling, contact JMB for his CAI.....or his engine compartment dress up stuff.......or his single turbo setup. All I know is I didn't get enough money for Christmas.

Belanger Headers & Belanger mids is what i have. love them. on the K&N I think the only difference is one is C.A.R.B. certified & one is snot. got an e-mail into K&N to see what the difference is. tired of messin with the Volant system i have now.

I like headers but they are very pricey for the gains.I would advise catless mids or at least high flow cats.The X-Metal Gen X shifter is a great mod.K&N drop-in or Justins CAI will both work fine.The drop-in will flow well but be quieter.A DC Performance Stage 2 tune will also help a bit.(though not as much on a RC as on a QC)

First thing is to know what you want from the truck and go from there.If you plan to go forced induction later there is no need to buy some things that you will later just have to remove.

Well since you have an 04 like me and if you dont plan on FI I would add some of the goodies I have. First drop the cats, best power increase for the least amount of cash. Second, maybe add headers, and a drop in filter. Next I would get a DC stage 2 computor upgrade, it really made a difference in my truck. Next I would consider a gear change 4.56 or 4.88's. The stock 4.10 gears are just boggers IMO. It will also have add life to your stock clutch which is a POS IMO.............so eventually you will be upgrading that as well. The shifter upgrade is nice thats for sure and you can find some great deals on used ones here. Any of them will be an upgrade over the stocker!!

Well that should fill your wishlist...............now get on the phone and fire up that credit card!!! LOL

I had Belanger's w/ High FLow Cat Pipes on mine. They do free-up some decent power, the sound is incredible, and the Headers make some sweet eye candy under the hood!!

They ain't cheap. I paid $2,200 for mine.

Right now another member had a Brand New Set for sale for $1,500 + Shipping here:

Belangers And Roe Throttle Body

If I was looking, I'd be all over these!!

I think Roe ships out of US. They won't rip you off.
