Default lookin for more powaaaaaa

so ive already got the initial stuff down. airaid cai, edelbrock exhaust, superchips flashpaq. considering swapping the exhaust out for something nastier with more flow-through. its reasonable in power. itll pull a 10000 lb load without much trouble, but i want a little more. dont get me wrong, itll throw you back in your seat, but im looking for some tire smoking action. from a dead stop to wot, it may chirp a tire unless coming off of gravel. ive done some research, it looks like it might benefit from a thermostat, electric fan, not sure what else. figured a throttle body would add some tire smoke, but after reading some reviews, im on the fence. not looking to put a cam or blower or anything drastic......yet. open to suggestions. truck is a 08 2500 5.7l. another thing, i dont see many 2008s on this forum. someone know something about them i dont? if i cant get the power im lookin for, ill trade it in for a cummins.

I realize it's kinda' "wrong" but, I've just joined this message board so that I can sell the intercooled Procharger kit I just traded for to somebody serious about Mopar, not some local yay-hoo here in Yuba City. I know you folks are dedicated so I figured it'd be best offered in this community. Kit has appx. 600mi. on it and then truck got repo'd by the dealership. Everything's beautiful and undamaged, no disappointments. This adds 100+hp according to Procharger.

$3300/shipped
