2006 ram 3500 2wd hemi dually
just bought this rig, it gets slightly better gas mileage than my 2002 1500 4x4 with the 4.7, but wondering what else i could do.

i like the quietness of this truck compared to my LOUD 02, so im keeping the intake and exhaust stock, unless someone knows a good flowing muffler thats still pretty quiet under normal throttle conditions?

efan seems like a good option? flexalite 183? good gains?

also wondering how the JET stage 1 chip for fuel economy and mild perf gains is? id rather not drop 300 on the tuner if i can get a chip for 150. they claim like 2mpg gains with the stage 1 chip? i never noticed anything when i had the stage 2 in my camaro, but idk???

180 t stat seems like a waste, as this truck runs cool. but jet claims for best gains you need the tstat and free flowing exhaust? ideas???? im averaging about 12 in the city, which is better than my 1500s 10.6 but just looking for some more relief? if its worth it

there are tons of threads on here about intake and exhaust ideas....I'm sorry no one posted anything. I honestly didn't think about them putting Hemi's in the 3500's....totally slipped my mind. At any rate, they have aftermarket mufflers that are more free flowing, but not much louder than stock. Look into Magnaflow for that one. As far as the intake goes, just stick a drop in K&N since you don't want a louder intake. Couldn't tell you about the JET chips, I had one in a '94 GMC and liked it. But as most would say, get a Diablo for the tuner.

If you are looking for factory quiet till you get on it hard, Flowmaster 70 series is where its at.
