Default engine mod help

I just got an 08 hemi ram,finished the stereo and just put on some cooper zeon ltz"s..also did the hids.Looking to do some engine work,intake cat back exhaust,maybe under drive pulley.Any tips on what i should do and what manufactures I should select.I was thinking flow master for the cat back and saw a nice cold air intake on ebay,by volant..don't know what type of pully to get or even if its worth it..and what programmer is good for these mods and easy to set up,i want to do a small cam also in the future...

OK there a lot of questions to ask.
just cams or your going all out like me?
is it going to be a daily drive?
are you going to tow?
soft of need to know how long till you get a cam if you are you might
exhaust i say magnaflow that just me i love my dual. Also you have mds i hate mine
intake i waiting on a bfi i like the way they are made. there a million threads on them. under drive pulley you can go to summit but i getting ati super damp pulley moes. o yes ask our sponsors also.

I'd suggest doing the CAI, cat back exhaust and programmer. Maddog gained 45 HP from these mods and has the dyno sheets posted to prove it.
