Trying to get that get up and go into my truck! Got me a 06 dodge ram 1500, so far I've thrown in the airaid cai and the poweraid throttle body spacer.. Definitely feel it, but not at the red light.. Is it just me or does the ram feel gutless at the bottom end? Anyone got some suggestion what to get next? I'm looking at the chip for sure..

Definitely look at getting a programmer. Our supporting vendors carry them, you'll probably hear the DiabloSport Predator come up more than once. Read some reviews, see what you think

Also, you might have the 3.55 gears so that will make it seem a little more sluggish. I noticed a difference between the 3.55s in my 2004 and the 3.92s in my 2008.

Flowmaster has a 3-year warranty compared to a lifetime warranty from Magnaflow. I know 3 guys around me who have had their Flowmasters rot out on them.

Its that the exhaust and the programmer are so expensive but the programmer would be cheaper and give more of an improvement.. definitely know what you mean though.. i feel with all this extra intake its STILL restricted cause it goes through same stock exhaust.. anybody try them E3 spark plugs?
