It's not carburated. There's not a whole lot to remove without screwing up the injection computer. If it's power or gas milage you're looking for then consider using a programmer to retune the computer, cool air intake, more efficient exhaust system, throttle body spacer,... Etc. The air pump is about the only thing you want to get rid of but reprogram the computer so it doesn't sense the solenoids missing and for better fuel mixture/ratio. Get rid of the clutch fan and go electric fans. Use synthetic oil in the diffs. Better spark plugs. I use v groove plugs. Seal up vacuum leaks, especially the injector o rings that everyone forgets. Changing intakes and heads is for more advanced HP increases and get quite costly. Camshafts and of the like, might as well rebuild the engine and prepare to free up $10k for a really good job. Using a traction lock rear diff helped my milage. No more one wheel peels in bad weather. Lighter foot on the throttle. Use cruise control. Clean air filters. Regular oil changes. Check your compression to see if your engine is tired or not. If you have an automatic transmission, consider retuning for better shifting or convert to standard. You can do a whole bunch of stuff, but if you start ripping out vacuum lines and wiring, you'll have a dead truck in minutes.
