Cheap easy mods for 6.2

A friend just picked up an early-mid 80's 1 ton Chevy with a 6.2 at a military base. The truck is in very good shape and only has 12k on it.
What are some easy hp mods for this engine?
Anything to look out for?

The military units already have a higher delivery rate injection pump on them and I believe they have the non-egr intake manifold on them already. Other than a Banks sidewinder turbo kit or headers, not much.
