More bottom end!!!

My 2011 Overland 5.7 is definitely a lot more fun to drive with the volant intake, moes ported TB, Corsa cat back, Diablosport trinity, and hemifever tune that's for sure. Although I find myself wanting more bottom end, it's kind of a dog off the line until about 3,500RPM. I was going to put AR headers on it a few months ago but the 2k I had saved up went into a new patio for the backyard instead. Any suggestions, maybe play around with the tuner a bit???

Re: More bottom end!!!

A good flowing set of headers will typically only get you power in the upper rpm's. You may need a cam if your really in need of lower rpm power.
You said it's tuned, is the torque management dialed back? There is a lot of protection built into the factory program to prevent drivetrain damage.

I haven't really messed around too much with the tuner, maybe I should try I don't remember seeing anything about torque management in there. I'll have to play around and see what I can do, I've been kinda hesitant to change too much in fear of damaging the engine by improper tuner settings
