Performance parts for a lot more hp?

I just got a 2013 GC Laredo Hemi, love it but want more speed&power

I already got a K&N air filter that I will install with Flowmaster 50 series muffler and straighten out the pips in the next couple of days.

I have been looking for a performance ported throttle body and a throttle body spacer, what's you guys input about that and what else do you guys recommend? I have warranty still so I would like to stick with parts that do not void it... Love to have a supercharger when the warranty is done ;p

Thanks guys, let me know what you think and what you already done that works!

A good tuner will definitely help. Go for the ported throttle body but skip the spacer. They do nothing on a port fuel injected motor like the hemi. A full header back exhaust will be a only real way to see bigger power numbers from and exhaust setup. Most catbacks are marginal gains.

Then you got the big mods like cams, superchargers and nitrous.

Cool, thanks, then Ill do the ported throttle only, what else do you recommend?

I was planing on getting headers in the future also but want to wait with the tuner until I'm done adding parts, I want to try to get the most out of my Hemi before I tune it.

Re: Performance parts for a lot more hp?

I took out the mufflers today and got straight pipe there instead and put in a K&N air filter, wow, like a new car! Sounds great, not too loud but you can definitely hear the V8 now and it feels faster, no lagging as before and picks up faster. Very happy!

Starting to think that it might be a waste to do the other stuff I was thinking about and just do supercharger instead? Have a few more years left on the warranty but when that's done with I might go all out...

Post up some good videos preferably not a camera phone, lol.
Microphones on them stink.
I would have to say skip the throttle body porting and if anything else besides a blower get a custom tune.

Well if he goes with a blower and tune he might as well get a ported throttle body as well. They work both for na and fi
