    You can install headers, intake and cam. edelbrock has a good package for the 350TBI. this will add the most power...or you can get a supercharger.

    I wish people were like slinkys, fun to play with but when I get bored I can push them down the stairs.

    how much would a supercharger cost for an 88' Silverado? all the catalogues i have just have them for 89' and up. And, is there any additional parts i would need to buy for this setup?

    you may want to consult the manufacturers for the parts list needed
    to complete the supercharger install. i can see the accessory
    brackets will need to be replaced with the later aluminum
    brackets, becuase of belt routing and clearences, along with the
    belt tensioner.
    as far as cost.. your doing the install will save labor alone.
    15hours @ $55phr=$825 and thats a cheap labor rate.
    the kit $3700ish + the add-ons plugs, cap rotor wires, coolant
    hoses i could see $5000 labor installed.
    save the $1000 for your install. ohh and youl have to replace
    the fuel pump. tank drop or bed removal.

    Heads, intake, cam, and exhuast work. You will need to do all of these to see any serious gains. Also, like what was already said, you could supercharge it.
