m-1 intake, cam (while your at it), roller rockers, fastman TB (52mm), pph mid length headers, and a decent muffler (i like flowmaster) will deff wake your truck up. ond if you havn't done gears yet, 5spd go 3.92 gears. auto go 4.10 gears and a locker of course. then your truck will be badass. thats a shipped price from socal. he's a good guy to deal with. cause you have to get hte M-1 itself then get the install kit (gaskets etc) i'll have to check my invoice from dodge. i think i might have gotten it a bit cheaper. cam regrind through comp is bout $200 shipped. just need a stock cam (jsut used my last one) fastman is alot cheaper then F&B. and jsut as good. rockers are gonn run above $300 used. probly some on ebay. gonna need new springs as well. again those can all be mopar parts. new lifters ($100) new pushrods ($100 for nascar rods) a good place to check out is KRCperformance.com they know their $hit. bit pricey but they can set you in the right direction and at least get pricing ideas on all of that. hope this helps some. i can get you pricing if you want on all of that. drop me a line [email protected]

i appreciate the list....i just got my air intake from prozen motorsports......and probably about summer time i will start messing with with more performance options, but for now i need to get a new bumper, windshield, and a clutch.
Know any good brands for clutches? or where i can find a good one cheap?

i dropped the clutch fan on mine for a proform electric fan with adjustable thermostat control...it gave me about 12lbs more torq or so and it runs about 10 to 20 degrees cooler

M1s are very pricey but worth it. I think I would start with little mods. A 180 tstat, better plug wires, or cai you know little things.
