Well first, welcome to the forum, since I see you're new here! Yes, intake/exhaust/programmer are what's considered the "big three" performance mods that, without going deeper and doing some engine work, will net you the most out of your HEMI. I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice and recommendations from others on here, I just wanted to welcome you aboard, and when you get a chance, be sure to stop by the Newbie Checkin and introduce yourself to everyone!

With the generation hemi you have you should be getting well into the teens and even low twentys . I wouldn't expect to much more mileage increase . Most people here do the programmer to disable the MDS . You will get better performance and depending on your driving habits maybe a little better mileage . Don't forget to stop by the newbie section and introduce yourself also .

i did tuner/exhaust and i got a '10 ram hemi 2wd 3.55's and i can get 22+mpg by setting my cruise at <60. plus i got plenty of power on tap to haul @$$ when i want to. what i like about the 4g rams is you can drive it like you stole it and get the same or better mpgs than grannyfooting a 2g
