I installed a Moe's 87mm on my 2014. Can't say it made a huge difference, but it feels a bit peppier.

So on a mild mod would a TB spacer be a cheaper route ? Or are spacers even worth it ?

This was an excellent write up, cleared up a lot of misinformation for me.

just curious if you guys would reccomend just having the stock one ported by a machine shop or ive even seen quite a few DIY videos. imo buying an oem mopar tb that has been ported seems like unnecessary expense seeing as how there is already a tb on the truck... any thoughts? has anyone ported one themselves?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't it be better to arrange some sort of RAM Air Intake before you switch throttle bodies. Much like the high performance motorcycles have. The air intake tube UP TO the air box from inside the fender well, is quite restrictive, regardless as to whether you have a CAI setup, air flow would be hindered by this tube.
So I am, thinking rather than replace the stock airbox with a CAI, just increase air flow( air pressure) to the stock box by some sort of RAM AIR from directly in front, either by replacing a fog light and running a hose up, or by making an opening just beside the grill.

I suggested the fm 84mm to chris because it suited his build best with the mods he has and it's matched perfectly to the intake manifold diameter which will prevent a lip that can happen with an 85mm.
Your wright up was spot on and I learned a lot. Being newbie I am great full you took the time for others to make a good purchase decision despite the marketing / sales component on this site. Thank you
