I have found, tuners and axle back exhaust systems and cold air induction kits, but does anyone know if there is anything else to increase power?

Possibly like cams, full exhaust systems, heads and stroker kits etc.

No headers are available for this engine, the exhaust manifolds are actually part of the head, so you only have a single exhaust port for each head. Considering the power it puts out already, there probably isn't a lot left on the table to add. Forced induction, if the engine can handle it, would be your best bet.

How much power and torque would i be looking at with the following modifications though?
Banks ram air intake system
Superchips Flashcal programmer/tuner
Magnaflow performance axle back exhaust.

From experience and my opinion, the exhaust you may gain a couple of HP at the higher RPMs, and may lose some torque which equals power at the bottom end of the spectrum. Banks ram air, you may gain some hp there, but again, nothing ground shaking. Programmer/tuner may net you the most power.

Superchargers will get you some additional High RPM power, little to no use at low rpm for offroad.
Exhaust will net minor gins in power at high RPM, more for personal taste than power.
Intakes are debatable but never a significant gain in power. Your biggest issue with performance intakes are high flow filters that allow finer dust particles through. K&N are notorious for it, especially if you offroad.

Best power gain? V8 swap.
