Default HELP! Need Performance Upgrade Advice

I have the 2013 Ram Laramie 5.7.... I put the Magnaflow 12588 exhaust on it so far.....a little better sound than factory..... BUT.... BAD DRONE! What to do now? Also..... CAI??? Yes or No? If so..... S&B, Airaid, Vararam, K&N.....or what? Diablo Sport? Bully Dog? Or no tuner, just exhaust and CAI? I know....MANY opinions will come in to play with the suggestions, But your suggestions will help....because I know nothing about this stuff, and it's my 1st real truck.....my retirement present to myself.

Thanks!

Congrats on retirement and thanks for service. I had magnaflows put on also but I dont have the drone, I made sure they put the muffflers where the old ones where behind the cab, which i think helps. As far as CAI goes from what I've been reading on here that the stock might be better for air flow than a CAI system. I haven't seen many choices for the 13's yet. Guys are having to modify the 12 versions to get them to fit in the 13's. Something about the ac lines being in the way, I believe. I'm waiting for Mopar or K&N to come out with a true 13 model. I'm the type of guy who doesnt think its right to have to modify something that you paid a good chunk of cash for, it should just fit.

Congrats on the truck and the retirement!
What I have had suggested to me: Magnaflow 14" to 18" muffler and Y pipe swap, S&B CAI and Moe's 87mm throttle body. No programming available just yet but shouldn't be too long since the 13 is similar to the 12 engine and trans wise until the A8 comes out. Once it does, I like Diablo personally...

I have a magna flow cat back system with the 14" muffler and a modified Volante CAI. No performance change nor improved mileage. I get no better than 10 mpg around town with a very light foot

I got the magnaflow 18" installed and call me crazy but the acceleration seems a bit zippier. Too early to tell on the mpg but I didn't buy the truck with fuel economy as a buying point.
