Thumbs up I have arrived...

Hello all,

I purchased a '06 Hemi 4x4 Quad Cab in april with 42k miles, I am now at 50k and loving my truck. I am now ready to start enhancing my truck. I started with tinting the windows and installing the Clifford 590.2 car alarm, which I love. I plan to put in a new sound and video system inside eventually, and want to upgrade the intake/exhaust/performance chip or some type of performance module.

My question is what should I do first, the air intake or the exhaust? For these I was looking at the vararam and magnaflow, am I looking in the right direction?

First off, welcome to the forumZ!! I'm sure some of our fine mods and members can also give you a big welcome. IMHO, I can say your headed in the right direction with the Mag. and Vararam Intake. You will hear those brands frequently on here. I'm also looking to get a Mag. si/do by next week. As for your 1st question I would probably do the intake first. But it really comes down to what order you want to do it in.

Hello and welcome to the forum, glad to have you! Sounds like a nice truck, happy to hear you're enjoying it! Any pics? We'd love to see it! Some nice mod ideas you have there, too. If it were me, I'd say intake first, then exhaust, as those two are going to complement each other, then the tuner and you'll really be able to reap the benefits of the first two. Lots of great people and info here, so any help you need, just ask! Be sure to keep us posted on your mods and I hope you enjoy the site!

Sounds like you've picked some good mods. Neither the intake or the exhaust has to come first but I think you'll get more enjoyment from doing the exhaust first.
