Horse Power
Well I went out and bought a 08 Ram 1500 Big Horn QCSB 5.7L Hemi w/Tow Package. Now Iím looking into the best bang-for-the-buck performance (HP) mods. With that being said, itís under warranty so I donít want to crack into the engine or do anything that my void it. So, I guess Iíll have to settle with bolt-ons. I guess what Iím really looking for is a list of actual or close dyno numbers.

Headers Ė 15
Mid Pipe Ė 5
Catback Ė 5
Intake Ė 3

This way I can see what is worth my dollar and which is not. Iíve tried doing searches, but there are really no numbers, just SOTP comments made by people.

First off, realize that the 345 horsepower claim is a lie. It's a lot closer to about 280.

Second, there is no magic number as to which part will give you x more horsepower, unless the manufacturer backs their claims with a dyno-proven guarantee (K&N does this)

Diablo Predator Tuner!

What he ^^^^ said. Combined with a cold air intake and an exhaust, adding the Predator is THE best bang for the buck mod for the 5.7L HEMI!
