HAHAHA yah i'm not 100% sure what else to do...cause i dont wanna start moddin all this stuff if there is an issue that should be addressed first...i did a big tune up from a shop a while ago, do my own oil and try and learn as i go but idk if there is something seriously wrong...i had to change the shift selenoid and i could see the tranny was good and i changed the tps and t-stat quite a few times...i just put the intake and i didnt see pooling of oil down the throttle body...this weekend i'm gonna do the throttle body clean up and dremel cutting so hopefully i'll see what's really going on down there...seems like exhaust and a SCT from hemifever is the way to go...i just dont understand how this rig can feel so sluggish after all the stuff i've tried to do to it....maybe dodge just made them under powered?

Thoughts?

there are silencers or little shields surrounding the butterflies and u just trim them off so its flush with the entire throttle body....supposed to help throttle response, hp and all that good stuff...it does make the trucks intake and what not sound super loud tho

you have to round the edges too after you trim them off and grind the center down to a point then make sure you polish it the polishing is key to helping flow.
