One of the biggest bang-for-buck mods is getting the PCM tuned. I'm not sure what the options are for the '96-'97 trucks, but you'd want to contact PCMforLess.com, BlackBearPerformance.com, or any one of the other online tuning sites and ask them for their advice with your application.

TBS (throttle body spacer) isn't really a performance mod... They do not really do much with an open intake plenum like what is used on these engines.
