Hey guys, I'm new to the site but have a question about mods and Im lookin' for some input from guys who have "done it". I just bought an 03 4.7 Ram, I plan on doing the following mods, Volant CAI with fog light scoop, fastman TB, airaid TBS, underdrive pulley and a Superchips tuner. I was wondering what kind of gains I should expect from these? I also had my original muffler cut out and had a Flowmaster super 40 welded in. (I didn't go with the bolt on cat back system because I wanted something more aggresive than the 50 series) Any feedback from you guys would be awesome.

Well... I just put a K&N and a Bully Dog GT tuneron my 2010 4.7 and im loving it so far. Bully dog and any other tuner (for my truck) all say around the same hp, torque, and fuel econ gains, i called each manufactuer. The K&N is rated at 8.6 something for my year. As for the throttle body im not sure... BUT! I have heard that there is absolutely no reason to get a throttle body spacer, it does nothing. With that said that was hear-say, so do a lot more research on whatever you buy.

Your looking at maybe 20-25hp most coming from the programmer

It depends on the engine. Pre 08 4.7L gained roughly 20hp max gain. 2008 and newer 4.7L gains roughly 65hp max gain(with superchips, anyway).

Cold air intake is the easier part :P I would suggest replacing the throttle body after you replace the stock intake because then all that extra stuff from the intake will be gone.
