"cam or bore it whichever one i can do in the least amount of money"

depends on what you can afford. I hate to be that guy but,if moneys a issue forget cams etc. especially since it'll have to be tuned AFTER the cam etc has been done,which will be cam,lifters,possible rocker studs,rock arms,springs....

see where im going? big dollars.

Best thing to do in your case is tune,make sure everything is done tune up wise,and just drive it.

Aah youthful enthusiasm. Dont put 30 Inch tyres on the truck and for Gods sake dont raise the thing. Take what have and rectify its faults, dont add your own.

Re-gearing will be the most noticeable upgrade when going to bigger tires, 4.10 say. Cat back exhaust and a tune was the next most noticeable upgrade I did. A cam, and headers would also help the engine as long as you get a good tune for it afterwards.

A CAI or FIPK are both a waste of money in my opinion. A K&N is unnoticeable other than having to clean the MAF a week or so after doing the K&N. Throttle spacers are a waste of money. Performance coils, expensive plugs and wires make no difference.

Preference i guess, I have a high output coil and 8.8 wires. Definent difference. Quicker starts and low end power
