Power adders for Silverado

Does anybody know of some easy power adders for a 2003 silverado with the 4.8L V8? It already has an exhaust. I wanted to add some power but I don't have a ton of resources. I was thinking CAI, tune/chip, something along those lines...

any suggestions?

The Diablo Sport Predator has always been pretty decent for trucks, especially diesels. That tune can disable your torque management and really wake it up.

They're about $300 new.

Same basic stuff that you would do to a Camaro; intake and a tune would be good next steps.

Here is my heavy Chevy.

Get ahold of Justin at Black Bear.....http://blackbearperformance.com/
He does wonders for most '96-up GM vehicles,A handheld can't do half of what he can do!
He did wonders for my 6.0 VMAX,more than the Hypertech or Diablo ever did.
He's the only one who will ever tune my vehicles,I already have him lined-up to do my Camaro next Spring.
Tell him Rich from GM-Trucks sent ya',he'll take care of ya'!
