Default What to add (or remove) next?

Hey guys, I'm new on here, I have an 04 hemi 1500 4x4. So far I've modded with a k&n drop in filter, flowmaster cat back, jet stage 2 chip, and am waiting on my 180 thermostat. I currently run 93 octane, and synth blend oil. I want to get a CAI next, but not sure wich, or how to get this BFI i hear soo much about. any suggestions? THANKS!

BFI is no longer in production so a member selling theirs would be the most likely option.

A mod to put on the list should be be 4.56's but being 4x4 it will cost double.

Maybe look into a e-fan.

flowmaster and jetchip isnt helping much either so your behind the 8 ball.... save for a superchips or diablo tuner...then get a better flowing muffler like magnaflow and Y pipe...

thanks for the heads up, I put the jet in cuz I got a deal on it, didn't notice any real changes. I'm assuming I need to remove the jet chip before hooking up the programmer. How idiot proof are the programmers? If I screw it up,is there a simple reset to stock configurations?

Everything I've ever read about Jet chips say they are a waste of money and in some cases decrease performance. I have used the Diablosport and Superchips tuners and really noticed a difference for the better with both tuners. The tranny tuning is better with the Superchips but the engine tuning is better on the Diablosport. If your worried about messing up don't be...both tuners have very clear instructions on how to install. If you ever think a cam may be a possibility get the Diablosport because you can get a custom CMR tune where with the Superchips you are stuck with the canned tunes. I bought the Superchips and sold my Diablosport thinking I wouldn't ever do a cam and sure enough I am looking at cams so I will be repurchasing a Diablosport and a custom CMR tune.Also I think my gas mileage was slightly better with the Diablosport...but don't kid yourself these are not going to get you 3 or 4 mpgs better! The tuner, efan, throttle body and Magnaflow exhaust were the best investments I have made for my truck so far! If you ordered the 180* tstat already maybe consider an electric fan...if in doubt about how much stress it takes off the motor just unscrew the clutch fan and see how much it weighs...then imagine that much weight spinning at 3,000+ RPMs and you'll see how much of a difference an efan can make. Hope this helps out...
