look these over
http://www.fordtruckclub.net/forum/s...searchid=39707

how much $$$ do you want to spend ?

gotts mod or CAI
free flow exhaust to include CATS
Tuner/programer (canned tunes vs. custom tunes)
stay away from tall/oversize tires they raise your final drive ratio causing a loss of giddy-up-go among other issues

I belive a member has a CAI for sale

The first thing you will notice is the top end power (climbing/passing) over 3000rpm's. I wouldn't drive my truck without a CAI on it.
Then as ASWAFF and JSOKO suggested, tuner (w/custom tunes) and exhaust.

Vin sold his CAI....and also, apparently there was something different in 04...that's the only model year is CAI covered.

I have a Roush CAI....I noticed a little more power in the higher RPMs at passing speeds....other than that, really no added effect aside from the sound you get. Just my opinion. There are better designed setups out there than my roush though. Banks kit like Bates has seems to be a really nice setup....same with the S&B vin had. Took more advantage of the port the stock intake pulled air from.

im lookin to spend about 200. i know i can get a good muffler for that and run the pipes myself. what kind of muffler ya'll think uts out more horsepower. ive heard cherrybombs sound good on trucks and also put out alot of horsepower(for a muffler)
A programmer/tuner would cost too much and i know some of my friends got bullydogs and they said it messed up their computers on their trucks.

A CAI is definitely out of the question if buying new. You might be able to find one for cheap on ebay or craigslist. I had Flowmaster 40 series on my truck before....sounded good and seemed to free up some power.

he may be so surprised that he'll help you out on the Truck with some extra cash

Well, I really can't add anything to this thread. Everyone already covered everything. 200 is going to be tough as far as an air intake system. Try the gotts mod, its pretty much free and helps get more air into your truck, just like an air intake system.

Do a search in this forum for GOTTS MOD. Good luck!

Me personally, I wouldn't bother to redo my exhaust unless I was adding headers as well.
