Default New Hemi! Lookin to upgrade some parts!

Just got a 2011 1500 5.7 hemi, single cab regular bed, and im lookin to get some stuff done to it! Im lovin it right now, but im a sound and performance guy, so gettin exhaust, headers etc is a must! =D

When im done, i'd like to have a K & N Cold air intake, Cat back exhaust, headers, and a chip put in. Not all at once, but eventually.

Hoping you guys could help me decide the routes to go, since im new with upgrading parts on newer trucks. I'm not lookin to spend a booatttt load of cash, but...anyway!

Exhaust wise, i'd like a single chambered exhaust, single in dual out. Other then that, headers and chip i'm lookin for some help from some more experienced people! Appreciate it ahead of time. =)

As far as exhaust goes, the Magnaflow cat back setup seems to be popular on this forum. Mine is arriving today so I am pretty pumped about that. Below is the thread that convinced me to go this route. Lots of pics and videos.

If you want to save a couple of bucks, you can also consider just changing the Y-pipe and muffler. Here is an excellent thread on that setup:

I agree with Razorbass on the exhaust. I have the DOD18M Magnaflow on mine and it sounds great. Pretty cheap too!!

I like my single in / dual out Magnaflow!

For headers, look at ARH (American Racing Headers) here on the site. I've heard that JBA will be releasing a set of shorties soon.

There are no good programmers available for the 2011 yet but you'll have two choices eventually... SuperChips & DiabloSport.

I prefer the DiabloSport programmers as I've seen noticeable results on both of my HEMI powered vehicles and they are easy to use. You can see some real world before and after dyno sheets on my "Ram Mods" link below. Just scroll to page 2.

Good luck with the mods!

i agree with the magnaflow exhaust and also with the diablo for the programmer but my choice of intake wouldnt be a k&n i would go with a different brand as iv heard they are poor quality for the rams

+1 for the American Racing Headers. I had multiple sets for my 2002 Camaro as the engine setup changed and my set for my Hemi just came in todya at work. I havent gotten a chance to open them yet but i know what is waiting for me.... pure exhaust tube art!

As for the CAI, look around the for and see what everyone is running. If i remember right the K&N really doesnt do much more than look better than stock because it is not in an enclosed box and doesnt pull and extra "fresh/cold" air.

I just had a 50 series flowmaster install in place of the stock muffler on my 2011 1500 sport quad with factory dual already and wow it sound and performs awsome and my buddy that helped me had a $1000 cat back system on the same truck and it sounds and performs not better than mine he is not happy lol.hope that helps and will keep some cash in your pocket
