just wondering what other mods can i do to my ute to give it a bit more grunt

so far ive got:

Full exhuast from exctractors to the cat back
Ngk plugs (soon comming msd coils packs n 10mm top gunleads)
Pod with cold air enclosure

these are future mods:

YT roller rockers
Plenum spacer
Manifold spacer
Green foam tune

apart from that there anything other than forced induction, gears, shift kits, stroker kits & cams

im not after any of them, other then that is there any other small mods i can do?

ah alright mate. i've heard it gives you more in the way of throttle response but still a small increase in power. i have never seen royal purple at supercheap, i'll be looking for some myself in 2thousand k's so i'll let you know if i find some. i know you can buy it online though
