Just traded in an 08 Ram 1500 with a 4.7 for an 08 Ram 1500 with a 5.7.

Loved the 4.7 but of course the 5.7 is great! I'm wondering about what the best bang for my buck is in regards to getting some more hp's out of my hemi.

Welcome to the Hemi world


Best first mods are:
1. Cold air intake
2. Super Chip

Then start thinking headers and you will become a modification addict.
