Upgrade Advise

I just got a 2012 WK2 with the 5.7L Hemi handed down to me as my first car, I'm looking for easy upgrade to improve street performance. I don't want to have tear out the motor to install a part to gain 5HP :P I don't have a very large budget for these upgrades, but I'm willing to spend a good chunk of money on exhaust, wheels, and brakes. Any advise would be great!

Re: Upgrade Advise

So...... are you looking for a street machine and little to NO off-road?

Because tires should be your first investment.

Then exhaust and a tune.......HEMIFEVER TUNE

I was planning to get a set of good, Falken or Yokahama, tires after my current set wears out, and my plans are a good performing street machine, but I do not want to do any big suspension mods.
