09 Hemi lookin for headers and possible cam helpppp!
i already have aero turbine exhaust, diablo sport predator, and Airaid CAI on my truck but definitely looking to get the truck faster...what do i dooo? i hear i need to go with headers and camshaft but I'm worried cause I'm not looking to make it ridiculously loud. just a good sound and can MOVEEE! and hints and tips and where and what part would be extremely helpful! thank you!

either the cat forward bbk headers or the Long tube American racing headers I believe is the only options, some1 else will correct me if i'm wrong.

Have you done the 180 degree thermostat?
Have you done a fastman throttle body mod?
have you done the magnaflow free flowing y pipe?
^these will be cheaper then headers and help open up some power!

You can get headers without making it too loud, ya just get a quiet muffler! A 180 t stat is great, but don't get a magnaflow y pipe of you're gonna get the long tube headers cause ARH provides a nice Y! I didn't see much gains from the Fastman throttle body...

The two options for headers are American Racing long tubes or JBA shorties..I don't know anything about cams though.

Regear to get those big wheels turning.

As mentioned you can get a quiet muffler to handle the dB.

I have Dynomax Superturbo Muffler and w/ cam + headers + no cats + Y Pipe i would say mine would just be slightly louder than stock. Def' not loud at all.

no 180 t stat
no trottle body
and no y pipe yet.

i've seen a lot of guys say that they have that 180 t stat and i kind of have no idea what or where but yeah looks like ill hold off on cam and pick up those 3 things first. I talked to a couple performance shops out here and they said i need those 3 before diving in to the camshaft options.

if i get that american long tube headers...will that effect my aero turbine exhaust manifold where i need to get a american racing one or will that be fine?

kay9 that is a great sounding truck! real nice and mean but not ridiculously loud! with taking the cats off you do that for sound or does that actually help on the performance?

A 180 thermostat can be picked up at autozone for $12 and it'll keep your engine running 20 degrees cooler. A fastman throttle body can be bought for $212.

I'm not sure what your question was about the American racing headers..they bolt right up to a stock exhaust, but since you have an aftermarket exhaust you might have to take it to a muffler shop like I did.
