Zoso II osoZ is on a distinguished road
Question What to buy, what to buy...what a conundrum!!!

I've reached the point where I'm about to lay down some $$$ for some performance mods. A Hemifever'd DCX inTune 1000 is the one thing I'm sure on. I'm torn between doing a full Maganflow catback system, or a S&B CAI + an 85mm TB. I'm sort of leaning towards the S&B and TB at the moment...I feel it would provide me the most noticeable gains. I'd save the catback for my tax return check.

What do you guys think?? I'd love to hear your opinions based on your experiences.

Like you said, tuner for sure.

Then id go catback. If you go intake and TB then still have a restrictive exhaust? Plus youll be able to hear that hemi like its supposed to be. Its best when theyre all paired up. The more air you let in, the more needs to exit.

The tuner will give you a nice boost in power. I would go catback and then TB/intake later on down the road. From what I have read on the TB/Intakes for ours Rams, the power gains aren't that significant. I will take the sound of the catback. Unleash the sound of the Hemi!
