Save more. Then buy the Ripp supercharger and a transmission made to handle that power.

Donate it to someone like me who desperately needs to catch up with you guys on mods. Just throwing it out there. I would consider long tubes or saving it for the Ripp, don't think you can go wrong either way.

You need about a $10k budget to include all the supporting mods that go along with a good supercharger/transmission setup.

....and another $5k if you can't DIY.

I say go for ARH LT's, catless, and get them ceramic coated (about $2k)
....then keep saving for the next round

(from a current JBA shorty owner with regrets now)

Don't go down that road until you have some serious $$$$ in the bank
and a rock solid transmission plan! (that's another $3k you'll need just to get started).

Stock Ram transmissions SUCK! mine died within 2 months of adding boost,
many others before me (and after) will tell you the same thing.

I've spent about $10k on my ride and I'm still not done, all DIY

Good read here :
