Default Does anyone feel the power

On my 2013 ram Im sort of disapointed in the fact that what ever I add to this truck I feel nothing.Let me break it down for you part by part.
First part I added the magnaflo muffle 12288 did not feel a thing on or off the track.
Vararam air grabber they claim up to 30 hp and 3-5 tenths at the track,3 hundreths and I cant be sure if it was the day or not.

Hypertech tuner 30 hp,yea right I slowed down 3 tenths at the track.

Now the bully dog tuner,until I finally get the tune staightened out from BD I'm not sure what I've got.

Except foe 4.56's and a converter has anyone put on a part that they are positive it gained in time or hp?

dont feel bad man, im in the same boat tuner wise.. truck slowed down with the trinity. i just emailed hemifever and he thinks he can cure that problem, which i know doesnt help you a bit since you have the bd tuner.. i felt absolutely nothing with the vararam over the k&n that i had on there .. as high priced as these parts are there should be some improvement.. the only things that really helped mine was the gears and stall.. on a side note, i just treated the beast with a mobil 1 full synthetic oil change and it sure seems to run smoother

Just curious, what made you go with the BD over DS? It seems you would have been better off w/ a custom tune on a DS since you're modding/racing the truck, JMO.

Ahh, sorry. I didn't notice you were 2013. They should be soon, right? Will you go that route when they do?

The superchips on my truck was a huge difference. My drop in filter and my muffler swap were not noticeable.
