Intake, Throttle body spacer, Programmer, new plugs and wires, headers, exhaust.  Cheap and effective.

Also, if you're 5.7 is getting up there in miles you might want to keep it stock and spend some cash on a new motor or rebuild instead.  Once you start adding parts to a high mileage motor you're asking for trouble.

Yes, I would move to Texas or Cali in a second to get into the scene as a career though!  A guy can only dream....
