My favorite mod is DiabloSport Tunner by far I've got more performance from it that
any other thing I've done but it is the most expensive mod I've done.
Before it didnt wont to spin taking off, but now I can melt the rear tires
Hope this helps, holler if you need!!

Best mood I ever did was free lmao... the Trottle Body mod is awesome, I would recomend doing that for free... the next is a nice set of headers, im talking over 300 bucks and brand name. They open up the trucks low and mid end, and it already has lots of high end as its a mopar product

The TB grind mod (only on the MAP side of the TB), upgraded to Load E tires and high flow CAT and exhaust. The Hp and throttle response is way better AND the MPG went from 12 to 19.7 hwy !!!

Moly bearing grease help too!

Ya can't get a DiabloSport tuner for the second gen Dodge and the 5.2L

My favorite mods on my '99 5.2L were the Volant cold air intake and the Magnaflow exhaust.

My top two from my old 5.2 was a full port throttle body and 1.7 rr's. Very easy mods that give a nice gain.
