2014 GC SRT - Beginner Mods?

My SRT is not due till mid-Dec and some old hands suggested I use the time to look at some mods. I've read a bunch of the threads and what do you think for the following (are they worth it)?
- CAI:InJen Injen Short Ram Air Intake: Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 2012 - 2014
- Thermostat: Jet 180 Degree Thermostat - Fits 5.7L, 6.1L and 6.4L Hemi Engines [10183] - $39.95$34.79 : MarylandSpeed.com- Your First Stop on the Way to Performance!
- TB: Fastman 5.7L 6.1L 6.4L Hemi V8 Throttle Bodies - The Fastman
- Tuning: Not yet available?
- Other: ???

As I'm a newbie to all of this, I thought I would start with
- Small Stuff that is cheap to ship to Sydney Oz
- Stuff I can install myself (plug and play)
- Stuff that will not void my New Car Warranty.

Thanks
Nathan

Re: 2014 GC SRT - Beginner Mods?

injen, 180T is good. But TB is useless your getting headers to go with it. Getting a bigger TB with stock head/headers is useless, you wont gain a thing breathing back into stock equipment. I would go with the Kooks header, Green Cats, and Exhaust set up because its the only system that will bolt right up with no error codes. If you get the kooks set up then I would go with the bigger TB.

Re: 2014 GC SRT - Beginner Mods?

Thanks gents, I think I'll wait till the new year (after I get delivery and have run it in a bit first) before swapping bits.... and hopefully the tuning option will be available not long after.

I guess I didnt think kooks gave a code based from what i read about the GREEN cats and that why I stated that. I just bought the whole kooks system and purposely got GREEN cats with mine for emission purposes.
