2008 jeep wk hemi mods

Hey gents,
So this is what I have done so far!!
Gibson exhaust, superchips 91 octane, TB ground mod ( didn't do much IMO ) ... Next bolt on I'm looking at is a CAI and kinda down to the mopar one as it looks sweet under the good and the Volant. I live in Toronto Canada and apart from some crazy snow it's not usually wet in these parts, at least to the point that I have to worry about submerging the intake. The only reason I'm looking at the volant is the airbox and the funky filter any thoughts/concerns ideas on what I should do? I have been searching through for a while now and still unsure of what to do.
Also any other mods I should be looking at? Both bolt on and in depth.
Gavin

Save yourself a bunch of money on the CAI and go with a SRT8 take-off with a K&N drop in-filter and extended the drain hole as an extra air inlet. There are plenty of threads on here detailing how/why to go that route.

In addition, I noticed that you didn't mention a Catch Can, which is a MUST HAVE for our hemi's. Use the cash you save on the CAI to pick up a BT Catch can!

Yes I mean the SRT8 inlet tube. It's a direct swap. Also the Challenger style IAT sensor is a good mod to go with it (costs about $5). You can find the SRT8 tubes on eBay, or on the "red" site (the site which shall not be named - PM me for more info), or at the dealer where they run $100ish. As a reference point, I got my tube and airbox shipped from the red site for $40.
