how do u have somewhat headers??? like pieces of them??? try roller rockers,porting and polishing heads and intake,bore and stroke the motor. now lets get this out of the way programmers dont do JACK SH!* for power they are a waste of money. next intake i sure hope ur not talking about a CAI considering these trucks already have one stock why waste MORE money on yet again another part for your truck that aint doin nothin than making your wallet lighter

Your intake isn't doing anything but maybe restricting airflow. What exactly is "somewhat of headers"?

you will find what you need there, other than that, exhaust and a tuner can be found elsewhere.
