Flowmaster is popular on here. I have been very happy with my cherrybomb kit. When it comes to cold air intakes i run a k&n and its wicked ...lots of good kits out there tho. And for tuners so many people here run diablo sport and im going to be picking one up very soon. Welcome btw

There are better options out there then Flowmasters...I did run Flow 50's a few years ago in my Ram..when i was slow...changed it to mags and my e.t.'s dropped...

as for tuners, the 2 best choices are superchips and diablo, if you don't plan to do cams/heads, then superchips is the best choice. If you do cam/heads, get the diablo for it's custom tuning capabilites. Sct is a good choice for custom tuning also but it lacks alot of user options that Diablo has.

The 2 best cai's for performance are the Bfi and the vararam...but the demand is so high for the Bfi that delivery is almost impossible and the vararam has certain quality issues that some wouldn't accept (doesn't matter to me)... this is not to say the others aren't good, they are all pretty close. (volant, afe, aem, mopar..), I'm not talking about the dropin filters either (those gains are minimal)
