CAI, tuner like a Diablo Preditor, and maybe true dual exhaust system.

and if you wanna get a little more crazy... Underdrive balencer, ported TB and headers!!

e-fan & 180 t-stat.

Exhaust (and headers), intake, programming, gears. Then you can step up to a better cam, converter and custom tuning (05 is like the best year for custom tuning Rams).

I bought a used DiabloSport Predator that I found on Craigslist for half the price of a new one...I'm sure that Diablo doesn't like me, but my wallet didn't complain.

ok...thanks for all the advice......i think im gunna start with a cold air intake...then move to long tube headers and true duel exaust...i figure if i can get it breathing better befor i go and get a tunner i would see a bigger hp gain. i allso want to get rid of my mechanical fan and go with a electric fan.....is it worth it....and if soo....can i just go and get a fan from advanced auto parts.....or do i need a spacific one?

do the cheap mods first, 180 tstat, cai, efan...you can go to a pick and pull yard and get a taurus efan for like $25-$30, then get a $30 fan controller (hayden)at an autoparts store. I've had a ford taurus efan for about 3-4 years and 125k+ miles and still runs strong. change the Y pipe as well.
