I have an aFe Stage 2 and well it sounds really cool, not sure if I increased my mpg thou..lol I've heard a lot of people go with the Magnaflow setup and enjoy it. I have the Mufflex DOD18M and enjoy it, also cut out my resonators and put on my own tips.. To each there own. Heard Corsa exhaust is pretty mean. Check out www.exhaustsystemsdirect.com..
Have fun with this mod thing, made me broke. LMAO!!

I just purchased the K&N 77-1561KP for my 2011 Sport and Love it. You can tell a difference right off the bat, and it's sounds pretty bad ass. Can't speak on MPG yet, as it's only been on the truck a few days.

You'll notice that exhaust is pretty easy to figure out as more and more people throw their two cents in, but Cold air intake will be a different story as people go with many different ones. I went with the Mopar CAI (it's expensive but covered under warranty) and Magnaflow exhaust (DOD14 Mufflex) and Magnaflow Y-pipe.

I dont have it yet, but I plan on running the Volant intake with a fastman 85MM throttle body. And far as the exhaust I plan on doing ARH headers, catted mid pipes, dual cutouts and flowmaster 40's with the OEM tips.

Volant comes with the best filter IMHO. The PowerCore Dry Filter is warrantied through Volant for 100k miles!
