Any Suggestions
I have a 1996 Ram with the 5.2, and I am adding some items. I would like to know if anyone could suggest anything else that would help my truck perform better. Nothing is wrong just some performance upgrades. Here is the list of parts I am getting:

Motor upgrades:
High flow throttle body (twin 52mm)
Stage 2 jet performance chip
High Flow Thermostat (180 degree)
Cold Air Intake W/ cool air scoop

Body Upgrades:
Single scoop functional ram air hood
projector headlights
Black/ clear lens tail lights
Truck bed lid
Sports Visor

I appreciate any advice or suggestions given. :4-vampire:

I would say if your doing a functional ram air hood, that you could do the 14x3 filter, rather than the intake.
I would also probably do a Superchips instead of the Jet, unless you already have the chip.
Thermostat looks good, projector lights (pics), whats a sports visor?

Nice list, I like the upgrades!

The sportvisor is a fiberglass part that goes above the windshield. I plan on putting duals on it as well, right now it has a single straight pipe.

I just ordered Long Tube headers as well, I can't wait to get home and put all of these parts on my truck.

Mopar provides a performance PCM which increase hp & lb-ft and will adapt to any other mods. (It may require premium gas.)
