Do you have anything else done besides a tune? I would think that the usual intake and exhaust would help out. It all depends on how much you want to spend. Speed cost money.

Tuner is pretty much the best bang for the buck. You probably won't be impressed with an intake or exhaust. I think a converter is one of the best mods.

Like others have said--depends on your budget. If money is no object then:
Supercharger
Headers
Torq. converter
New gears
Trans rebuild to hold additional tq. and hp
Internal engine work
Remember you are trying to push a 5K truck.

4.56's are going to show the best gains on the street. Right behind that would be a quality tq converter.

Also, what tune are you running on the Trinity? You arent going to start seeing real hp gains with any of the programmers unless you are on the 91-93 octane tunes.

The tuner will help you get the best results from any other mod you may add, they are all complimentary ( to the most part ). Great place to start!!
