Welcome to the Z! Stop by the newbie section to get the official welcome.

As for the hemi, you can look at long tube headers, an e-fan, 180 deg T-stat, underdrive pulley. Then you have to decide how far you want to go... there's cam, heads, etc.

long tube headers are what I have been looking into and gathering info on. DHM or is it DMH e-cutouts the corsa db system I have is great but would like to hear my hemi a bit more. still looking into the headers and more but would these cutouts alow my hemi to b heard now with what I have now? and will they be in the way or hinder perfomance when I do headers for example?

I gotta agree with kay9, throw a 4:10 or a 4:56 in the rear and forget about it, aside from that.... longtube headers
