06Mega w/5.7 Hemi mod questions
 
I have an 06 MegaCab with a 5.7 Hemi, and I'm about to turn 100k miles. I'm looking for recommendations for mods that will improve my performance and maybe add some longevity to the motor. It is completely stock right now, so any advice will be much appreciated!!

The first thing to do is establish a few parameters. What kind of budget do you have? How much of a power increase do you want? Are there any local ordinances to worry about? Do you want to go inside the engine or just do bolt on mods? Typically, most people start with the "Big 3" mods - A cold air induction, cat-back exhaust, and engine tuner. A friend of mine has the same truck you do and did these mods and gained a dyno proven 35 HP and almost 70 ft lbs of torque with a custom tune in the PCM.

^^^I agree, start with the basic 3 and then come back and ask if you want more As for longevity..that will come back to you and how well you do the normal maintence fluid changes..these trucks can last awhile..my 05 has 234k+ miles and still runs good...

Thanks for the advice. I was leaning towards the "big 3" idea. Is there a specific tuner that you would recommend? I have the exhaust and intake areas covered, but I'm not really up to speed on the tuners.....Thanks again!

The Diablosport or Superchips models are the most popular for your application.
