bigger TB on 14 2500 hemi

first off i love how my truck tows our 10k tt. but i was wondering will a bigger tb help with towing maybe even the vararam intake as well. i dont want to lose my mid range power and by midrange i mean how it will tow all day long at 2300 rpm doing 70mph. im new to the hemis the last ram i owned was a 1971 power wagon with a supercharged 440 big block.

any advice is welcom.

Question

What differential ratio are you running? A gear change if needed would make the most towing difference .

An intake and ported throttle body will show more power at WOT, but if you are looking for mid range pulling power, then I would go with a tuner or gears first. Diablo tuner with custom tuning is your best bang for buck as it is much more affordable than a 4wd gear swap.

Not sure who said that, but we have been tuning the 2014 2500 5.7 trucks for over a year now. Its only the 2015 2500 6.4's that are not tunable yet.

Not at all. That only applies to the 2015 models. On the 2014 and older, you only need the tuner itself.

Either of the Diablo tuners will work best. I run Hemifever on the custom tuning, but I would reach out to charged392 on here as he is a very active member and does custom tuning as well.
