Cam change TFS1, 2030, 2301 if you have a 220spec just to name a few.
You'll need cam, Springs, Retainers, Timing Set, Assortment of gaskets, possibly pushrods(that you will know once its open). Note to use good double springs on the GT40P's you will need them machined to suit.

Budget around 2k all up installed for good bits. Or about $1200 if you use the cheap stuff (STUPID). Of course less if you can install your self.

Diff gears up to 3.9's (good middle ground) Will get you off the line much quicker and liven it up. NOTE you wont notice much of a gain in acceleration if any with this mod until you have edited the ecu, because the torque maps compensate for the lower gearing. Speedo will need corecting (Speedo Drive gear) And if its a ute you will need to look into your tailshaft
Budget $1000 for the gear change and diff rebuild.

Edit EECV EDIT is the best option out there for the Au's tuning wise, but your tuner is what will make it or break it. Access to all the torque maps and other problem areas that NONE of the other chips etc can touch.
Budget around $1500 custom tuned

There are plenty of avenues for you to look into, but its a matter of working out how deep your pockets are and what qualities you want the package to have.

A Decent supercharger package installed look around $10,000 - $13,000 a touch more for a good matched stroker setup.

Dont forget the extras like driveline. Block is a grenade around 350rwkw or over 6500rpm. After market blocks can be had to take much much more starting around $3000 +Machining

Your heads are GT40P Cast Iron
Your Rocker Ratio is 1.6 (200spec) or 1.7(220spec)
Your manifold is an Explorer
Your diff gears are 3.45:1
Hope that was of some help to you.
