Default 09 ram performance upgrades for towing.

Just curious to know what upgrades would be good for towing a boat once a month. Other than that I like power. I cut off my muffler and it's now straight piped but I feel like I lost a lot of low end tq I would need for towing. Plus mpg look like it went down a bit. Are tuners worth it for gas trucks? Would a drop in k&n filter be just as good as a CAI? Thanks

Well for my truck I don't haul too much but a drop in air filter won't do too much help as for your exhaust I've read that since there is no back pressure you lose low end torque. As for programmers I've used a bully dog on my stock 2009 ram hemi crew cab 4x4 it did feel like it improved through the whole rev range when using the premium tune with premium fuel it knocked nearly half a second off my 1/4 mile time and sped up my 0-60mph to 6.6 instead of 7.4 on regular fuel completely stock with the bully dog not installedjust using the timer. I'd recommend brakes as well I'm saving for some ultimax rotors and green stuff pads since I'm about to hook up my dad 5th wheel trailer and push the max load
