    Thought the 2000 was a 4.7... why do you need more power? For offroading, towing? It may help us guide you...

    Chips are useless...go the programmer route, and or S/C it :)

    Look into the Hypertech interceptor. Have it on mine and it did gave a bit more oomph. I agree with darkoverlift, didn't think they didn't had the 5.7 till 2007.

    Its most likely the 4.7, although there are some swapped 5.7 first gens running around.

    Long tube headers! and a full exhaust.

    Imo based on my camaros and jeeps; air in and air out should be the first modifications..

    If its got headers you are set, the longtubes are good for about 20hp over the shorties tho. Airaid jr kit intake is cheap and easy intake system. If the trans hasnt been serviced in awhile a fluid change can really help the acceleration and shift times. There is the UniChip, but I have never had good luck with that.

    There really isn't a whole lot you can do with these to add HP gains. Cheapest routes are the cold air intake and then the exhaust. You can buy a Unichip for small gains or get a programmer for larger gains. But dont expect much results for how expensive those are. And then if you happen to have a Japanese made 4.7 you can go with the supercharger mod, but that's pretty pricey as well.

    To be honest, I don't think the unichip will do anything ...

    My afe intake really woke mine up. I'd like headers eventually.... but as of now mine runs pretty good with just an intake and exhaust and being maintained properly. 4.7 superchargers ae a joke... so lame compared to other models/engines
