Hey, I'm gathering people together for a CAI sale so if you would to go check that out and let me know which cold air you like. It's in the vendor section under BMC Performance.Now about a tuner there's Superchips Flashpaq and there's the Bullydog Triple GT tuner I can get either one for you! Let me know which one you are interested in and we will get that Ram of yours some more power!!!

They only make it for the 08-09 4.7L. The Superchips Flashpaq is pretty good for your motor though. Superchips also makes the Cortex for your truck which is a little more pricey but it comes with a 2 year powertrain warranty! Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
Thanks, Sam@BMC Performance

I just got the Superchips Cortex (from Sam might I add), and I am very pleased with it. Really liked the 2 year powertrain warranty that comes with it.

I do not have the 4.7L but I hear the Superchips is the way to go for your truck! Intakes are all pretty much the same, some members on here have made their own. You will get performance gains from anyone of them that are on the market. Now some of them make a little more than others. I have an S&B intake on my 5.7L and they claim to have the best power gains for the box style intakes.

I just took a look and there are a variety of companies to choose from. I think the coolest one was the RBP intake, but it is a little pricey.

It feels great! I can tell a difference in shifting especially. Also around town MPG's have increased about 1.5 - 2. I know it sounds too good to be true but my regular around town 45 - 55 MPH I'm getting 18MPG!!
