If you're looking to do some extensive engine builds, then the predator is the way to go hands down, aside from that, you get the same basics as the Superchips, both give ya a good boost to power. pretty much any CAI will give you better airflow, just make sure you get one that's sealed or has a good heatshield. As for the exhaust, a good muffler OR a full CAI will be good, Magnaflow is popular, and Gibsons makes a nice sounding system.

I found an adapter for the hood made by Volant but I don't see a place for the adapter to connect on any of the volant CAI systems. It says the adapter connects to the top of the CAI.

I'm having trouble finding a CAI that has an adapter for the srt10 hood scoop and I would really like to utilize the hood scoop. I found a CAI that has the attachment but it's for the srt10. Will this one work in the 5.7 Hemi? I'll post a link to the CAI.
