Looking for advice on new truck.

I have a 2017 Ram 1500 SCSB 5.7 Hemi 4x4. Right now I have only 2,000 miles on her. I'm looking at adding a cam, electronic exhaust cut outs (leaving stock exhaust but going to 5in tips), and cold air intake. I don't want to ruin my 5year warranty cause as we know dealerships are stealerships. The work would be done at a well known professional performance shop as well (brother has his 99 TA in now 1500hp).
I'm looking for advice if I need anything else with a Cam or advice on the electronic exhaust cut outs, etc. Figure some of you guys may now the Do's and Dont's before I tell the builder what I want done. Main goal is to not lose the warranty which many can agree too haha.
Talked to the dealership and said I wouldn't lose the warranty BUT if anything happens they'll need to pull out any aftermarket mods and install stock than warranty will cover it. I don't trust the dealerships AT ALL since I've been screwed multiple times in the past. Any advice would be most helpful. Thanks in advance!

The SRT 392 Cam(MDS AUTO Mopar OEM 6.4L/392 Camshaft ) is a good starting place, it will run on a stock tune and most Stealerships won't know it's in there.

now with a tune it's a whole lot of fun.

How would I acquire an unlocked PCM? Also would I need different headers or any head work done for the electronic exhaust cut outs? Heard it could damage the engine if you don't have the correct mods

I got a modified PCM from Diablo with my Intune i3 Programmer. Don't send in your PCM to be modified/unlocked, it will void your warranty, you will want to switch it out if you bring in your truck for any warranty work. Well worth it though, I love mine!

I'm just hoping once I have the cam installed nothing bad happens haha. That'd be a hell of a labor bill on top of installation. Any other tips? Do I need do get aftermarket headers, intake, CAI (varram), lifters, etc?
Or would a cam, exhaust, PCM, and tune be just fine and dandy? Trying to keep it reliable as possible (obviously haha) but also with a decent amount HP increase.

You may want to help out your CAI and exhaust upgrades with a ported throttle body.
