Default 2004 4.7 street build

Iv for an 04 4.7 5 speed. I'm looking for it to be a fun street truck but still pull a trailer when I need to. I ordered a can tuned sct from airram, an airaid cai, and an efan. What will the gains be from this? What else would y'all suggest do? Kinda on a budget but don't mind to spend on something that's worth it.

Welcome to the forumz. Everything helps when you drive a heavy ass truck. I don't know what Dodge did on the last gen 4.7's to pull 310 hp, might do some research. Check with (hemituner) he can probably help you to get everything there is, out of her.

They revised the cylinder heads (twin plug), different cams and intake manifold with tuning. From what I have heard the 08+ cams are comparable to HO cam timing (and cheaper/more readily available, since HO cams are like gold).

Ekinslow67 did you ever get a response or supplier to do this? I recently bought an 05 2wd with the 4.7 and want to increase the HP.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
