Do the HCI (Heads, Cam & Intake) if you can swing it. One of the biggest restrictions are the stock heads. There is an article on the net somewhere, where they changed the heads on a mild 5.0 to the AFR 165's and picked up 100 HP.
Then save up your pennies and get an AFM PMS
for tuning. Save you the hassles of sending a chip back everytime you change something and there are a lot more tuning options to boot.
