Intake and exhaust systems are very restrictive on the magnum V10.
IMO, get a decent filter and tube, do some porting in the intake, 1.7 rockers (be aware of stud sizes here as there was changes during production), headers, high flow cats, good exhaust. Hemi fever tune and. 4:10 gears(if you don't have).

I would stay away from head porting except to remove casting flash and stress risers, UNLESS you can afford to:
1) have it professionally done
2) can sonic check areas where your porting
3) can afford to wreck a head or 2

The heads are notoriously thin and porous, that's why I urge caution.

I would resort to cam and porting only if the others are not enough

Silence! Differing opinions will not tolerated
