Default My 09/10 5.7 hemi question about mods.. (ive searched for hours)

I have done alot of searching on the site and apart from it. I know all about the Predator tuner and how its is AMAZING for the hemi, and leaves no ghost.

Also I have done a fair amout of air intake searching, 180 degree thermostats, and e-fans.

And exhaust, I am gettin the mufflex kit.

My question, for the money, wich mod would you do first, and give the best results from your Hemi experiences.

I will eventually do them all, including gears, but what would you do first?

Sorry for being newbish in my questions. Its my first Hemi.

thanks guys..

You won't really reap all the benefits of the Predator until you get the CAI and exhaust done. More air in needs more air out. Then the Predator 91CAI tune will really make the HEMI sing.

If you have to do just one at a time, you can either do the CAI or the exhaust first, then add the one you didn't select first, then the Predator.

It will be nice to have the Predator on before you do the gears. With that tool, you can re-program for the gears in just a few minutes.

True. Good thought kind sir... lol

In all honesty, It will prb be exhaust first, then install my k&n drop in. The new intakes flow well from what i have seen They have an intake tube and all. I didnt see any restrictive pippin either. Then the Predator will be my B***h..lol
