I do believe Diablosport has a tuner available for your year 4.7 .

You can get the programmer ^^^^ plus a cold air intake and an exhaust system for your truck. There are lots of sources for these items so just a bit of Google Shopping should find you the best price.

Good luck with the mods and at UTI!

The last year of the "high output" 4.7 in Ram trucks was 2007. This engine was a slightly more powerful version of the 4.7 engine in production from 2002-2007. The 2008 and up Rams have the second generation 4.7 and there is no "high output". The good news is that your "normal" second gen 4.7 makes more power than the "high output" first gen....and a ton more than the "normal" first gen. The first gen 4.7HO was rated at 265HP/330TQ and your engine is rated at 310HP/330TQ.

Sounds like you are on the right track with the mods. I understand that a programmer really does wonders on the new 4.7s. As for headers, I haven't searched in detail but I have read quite a few threads and I honestly don't know if there is a company making headers for the 4.7. Maybe, some shorty headers but I'm not even sure about that. I do remember reading a thread where several owners were looking for a set of long tubes and they all had the same conclusion....there just aren't any. I think a few industrious peeps have gotten a set of 5.7 hemi headers and cut and welded on the 4.7 flange. Good luck!!
