Horsepower/torque increase recommendations?

second: i have an 03 ram hemi and i want more power...what would you guys recommend besides: air intake, programmer (without a supercharger/turbo)
i have about $3200 to spend in upgrades
thanks in advance.

Cam, heads, rockers, headers and high flow cats should use up some of that extra green. Maybe a NOS kit for a little giggle and grins down the road.

long tubes,CB,and spray it.with green still left for some gauges..

Holy crap! I wish I had that kind of money to spend on upgrades. You're not going the route of forced induction? Well, I'd start off with the proper tires according to what you'll be using the truck for. Power is nothing without control, right? I'd throw in a full exhaust, a high end one of course. Then if you have any money left over a programmer should help.

Lotta good suggestions here and quite a bit to think about.

Let us know what ya decide!

I'd go for a cam, heads, long tube headers, highflow cats, cat-back exhaust. They'd give your some great MPGs and boost the HP and low end torque. And maybe to stop your extra power, upgrade you brakes with either a big break kit or upgrade pads and rotors (cross drilled and slotted)

...I have a buddy in Mesa that has done installs (cams an stuff) and can prolly point you in the right direction. He's a cool guy to talk to, lemee know if you want to talk to him. We (a few Cali guys) were there a few weeks ago runnin at Firebird and Speedworld..
