Default What other upgrades to 4.6l v8

I've done some modest upgrades to my motor rebuilt, shaved and ported heads, flowmaster dual exhaust, rebuilt transmission. I'm going to do headers and an x pipe but what other changes can I make to this motor to get a little more horsepower?

Take off the muffler. Cats if you don't have strict emissions.

4.6l so its a mod motor then? If so there are literally tons of mods you can still do it all depends on how much $$$ you got.

Forgot to list but I have a cold air intake. Do they make aftermarket throttle bodies for these? I know they dont make many aftermarket parts for these motors.

I saw a site somewhere on the internet where they put like 5 grand into one of these motors and didn't get it over 400hp. Not looking to spend that much, maybe like 1k. Just looking to for simple upgrades that I may have overlooked.

Dont have cats. No mufflers sounds like poo.
