Question Mama gave me $500 to blow

I have a stock 2009 RAM QC 4X4 with the 5.7 Hemi. Single exuast. I want to make it sound better, and maybe get just a little more HP and MPG. What should i do with my $500?

Try a cold air intake first.

Or, you can get a DiabloSport Predator programmer and wake up the HEMI!

Welcome to the forum.

K&N Cold Air Intake is probably one of the most popular mods, needing one myself.

I have a Flowmaster Super 44 Single-In/Dual-Out Muffler with 4"x18" Rolled Edge Stainless exhaust tips....LOVE IT!!

A Programmer goes a long way. More HP and depending on what you get and how you drive it, more MPG is an option...lol...

Welcome to the Z! Stop by the newbie section to get the official welcome. Now on to your question, a cold air intake and a new muffler, total that should round out to $500 and give you some good performance upgrades and some great sound too.

I agree with CdnoilRAM ^^. Intake would give you more MPG and when you step on it you'll hear it sucking air back. And you'll get some MPGs
