Question Need performance help with 04 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi

Hello, I reside in central Texas, and I have owned my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi for about 1 year now. But I am wanting to do some upgrades to the performance. I have aleady put flowmasters with dual exhaust on it. But I was thinking about purchasing a Superchips programmer and maybe a cold air kit. Was curious if anyone can tell me thier advice as to which brand of programmer is the best. And, is there any other suggestions or reccomendations that would make a noticable differance for as little $$$$ as possible? Right now everything is stock except the exhaust. Thanks. Hope to hear from someone soon.

Don't know if AFE makes an application for your specific truck but they are the best from reading all the posts. An AFE Stage II.....

I have a Ram Hammer CAI on my 07 and its awesome! Hammer is not making any intakes at the moment but hopefully he gets going again. As far as programmers the majority of people go with the Superchips. Here is a picture of the massive Ram Hammer.

http://www.rpmoutlet.com/ramhemi.htm#4 check them out they have nice packages you can get and gives a little idea on horsepower. I think Airaid have the best intake systems and throttle body spacers
