Default Can I give it a little more kick?

Hi there, I'm sure there have been many questions like this before, but I guess I just wanted to add to the list, I drive a 2000 3.0 2WD 5 speed manual transmission Ranger, bone stock if I'm not mistaking. I was just wondering if there was any chips or anything I could replace to give it some more kick? I do understand that the 3.0L is a pain in the ass for mods, but if there is anything that could add something worth it, I would gladly appreciate it

Some say a programmer, if you know how to use it, but for the most part a 3.0 is a 3.0. Myself, I did the air box mod, cleaned the maf sensor, stopped a k&n in, throttle cable mod, and magnaflow muffler and I felt a big difference in it. Good thing about the mods, they are cheap and reversible if they don't work.
