Default Need Ideas

Hello all, I have a 2011 1500 Sport Crew. I have added molded mud flaps, 4" step bars, tri fold cover, 18" magnaflow and K&N cold air intake. I have been waiting for a programmer but still none being made. I need some ideas for some performance mods. I have seen some people post about CAI but I don't know what that is. Any ideas?

CAI stands for Cold Air Intake, which you already have. The best bang for the buck is to replace the stock Y-pipe with an aftermarket one. That is the most restrictive part of our exhaust. Other than that little things like 180 degree thermostat or a ported tb. Not much you can do. Headers maybe. Also we need a moderator to move this to the 2011 forum...

CAI = Cold Air Intake and you have a K&N system so you've got that checked off the list.

The programmers for your year truck should be out soon. Adding that to your intake and exhaust mods will really wake your HEMI up.

Obviously, a level kit or lift kit, larger wheels and tires, demolding, removing the badges, window tint, a bed cap, etc...are all good mods to consider.

Thanks everyone, I figured out CAI about 5 minutes after I posted this on top of finding out I put it under the wrong category. I am going to look into the y pipe and continue to wait for the tuner. I check Diablo everyday. I have a 3.55 gear but dont know if I want to spend that much money yet to swap to a 3.92, it might affect the power train warranty.

Wrong section for this, but you could get headers, that will help wake it up

Not if they are MOPAR gears and are installed by the dealer.
