Default Wish List or Mod list

What do you think?
2011 Ram 1500 sport. White crew cab.

Mods:
Front/rear leveling kit
cold air intake
Full high performance dual exhaust. headers all the way back.
stock wheels with the largest all terrain tire I can fit without rubbing problems.
Professionally tuned.
And I was thinking on putting in some electric cutouts in the exhaust (dump switch) to have some fun with.
Oh and a train air horn.

All great choices but I think I'd be tempted to forget the CAI and go with a tuner like a Diablosport ( be handy for adjusting your speedo calibration too).
The stock intake is actually quite good. I just added a K&N and had great results.
Let me know I actually have a DS tuner for sale as I have a Cummins now lol..
Make someone a good deal if interested..

you may find the dual exhaust all the way from the headers to the dual exhaust difficult to do
A Magnaflow Y pipe & 1 into 2 magnaflow or a borla or even another brand muffler, 3" into two 2 5/8 or close to that exhaust pipes the way to go

the gas tank would be the reason to do it this way

I agree with NO CAI.... All I hear is complaints from the noise they make.

considering he is wanting dual cutouts i don't think a small if any dB increase of a open CAI should be a difference.

Very nice "wish" list BTW.

Do the CAI if you are gonna open up the exhaust. More air in + More air out = More HP.

And there aren't any programmers that will work with your truck out on the market. Dodge encrypted the PCM software and no one has been able to crack the encryption yet.

As far as the rest of the mods...right on!
