Well I went out and bought a 08 Ram 1500 Big Horn QCSB 5.7L Hemi w/Tow Package. Now Im looking into the best bang-for-the-buck performance (HP) mods. With that being said, its under warranty so I dont want to crack into the engine or do anything that my void it. So, I guess Ill have to settle with bolt-ons. I guess what Im really looking for is a list of actual or close dyno numbers.

Example:
Headers 15
Mid Pipe 5
Catback 5
Intake 3

This way I can see what is worth my dollar and which is not. Ive tried doing searches, but there are really no numbers, just SOTP comments made by people.

First off, realize that the 345 horsepower claim is a lie. It's a lot closer to about 280.

Second, there is no magic number as to which part will give you x more horsepower, unless the manufacturer backs their claims with a dyno-proven guarantee (K&N does this)

What he ^^^^ said. Combined with a cold air intake and an exhaust, adding the Predator is THE best bang for the buck mod for the 5.7L HEMI!
