95 with no power

i just picked up this 95 chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 silverado. nice pickup, 6 inch lift, fully loaded. can't complain really....except for the 200 hp 350 they put in this thing from the factory.....blah!! now i am used to driving my diesel that is pumping out 600 hp, but still this thing is a gutless wonder. i am fairly new to computer controled gas engines, i have been dealing with nothing but diesels and carb engines. what can i do to get some power out of this thing? i have been looking at superchargers, and twin turbo kits, but not sure what i can run on this pickup with it having a computer to deal with. any information would help. thanks.

a turbo shouldnt mess with any computer settings. but you could try putting a chip in it.

you can also throw on a cold air intake, headers, and a new exhaust system to let out some horses as well.

Some things I would reccomend that even the tbichips.com guy reccomends would be first heads. The stock heads were not very good in my opinion. Second Cam. Third Intake manifold I bought the Edlebrock 3704 intake manifold. The Tbichips guy also reccomends an aftermarket Fuel pump which he sells on his ebay store. And to top it all off I would get a custom chip from this same guy. Also there is a tbi mod on there were he grinds down the ridge around the throttle bore and grinds down the throttle shaft half way to improve air flow. YOu can also add 80 pound injectors and a stiffer spring for the fuel pressure regulator. Oh and I forot one that is very important! A free flowing exhaust!
