Default First post!

hey all, im looking to do a crap load of work to my, 2005 dodge ram 1500 V8 hemi sport, when i get back from deployment. this being my first real performance work, im looking to get some help with not just finding online sites, but help with recommended brands and where i should start.

Out of my 15 co-workers/friends 10 of those are dumping some G's into there cars/trucks after deployment. we're going to see who has the faster/nicest ride!last year we did the same thing without being deployed to save up a good amount to start with, each had about 1k to spend. i used a 2004 V6 mustang convertible, i came in second behind a 1966 Pontiac GTO.... yea not even close. But this year im going to spend a great deal more!

My First question that will alter my plans is how much HP and TQ could i produce before needing to do heavy engine,trans,drive line ex. work?

This is a "starter" list im putting together/ordering before i return to the U.S.

Air intake
Full exhaust
Gears
Super-chip/programmer
Cow hood
new gauges
and maybe a supercharger/turbo

thank you for your comments/help

welcome, you guys are lucky cuz you save up a $hitload of money from deployment and get to do it all at once (my boy was the same way when he came back from both of his deployments). it took me 5 long years to get my truck modded the way I wanted it... and 3 months from a fellow ram owner coming back from deployment to do almost the exact same thing. I have one of the quickest 05 qc's around hand here is a list of the mods i did:

-Ramhammer cai (BFI)
-ported throttle body
-Inertia Spartan Cam
-Inertia big valve heads (PAC springs an custom length pushrods)
-Pacesetter coated lt headers
-3" true dual piping exhaust (cat deletes) to dual 3" DMH cutouts to magnaflow muffler dumped after axle
-Taurus efan (dc controller)
-180 tstat (autozone 4128)
-Linelock
-Edge 2800 tq converter
-4.56 gears (sierra)
-transgo shiftkit
-DSP programmer with custom tune (Bob Crespo)
-summit 23 percent ud pulley (C2516)
-custom alternator pulley
-4/6 McGuaghy's drop (with bag assists)
-Caltracs traction bars
-Zex nitrous wet system (100/125 shot)
