Peformance Upgrades 5.7L Hemi

It's getting close to the holiday season so I thought I might buy my jeep some Christmas presents. I'm looking to gain some horsepower and torque but don't want to spend over $1000. I'm looking at exhaust, cam, and tuner. which combination of 2 would give me the best performance. also, any recommendations on camshafts. If I get a tuner, it will be the Diablosport. If I get an exhaust, it will be magnaflow. I found this camshaft for $500. http://estore.websitepros.com/802805...tom/Detail.bok

thanks

Re: Peformance Upgrades 5.7L Hemi

cam and tuner. but your going to come close to $1000. but an exhaust wont give you the torque or hp like a cam will

ive been looking into cams myself. this company seems good, some guys on the red site with there cams.

im aiming at the rumbler

Re: Peformance Upgrades 5.7L Hemi

you gotta figure install and tune on the cam...that will get you way over $1000. It is the best bang for your buck of what you listed

Re: Peformance Upgrades 5.7L Hemi

+100hp @ the wheels? WTF? Thats a lot EDIT: OK so that is on a charger 5.7L...that is an awesome gain WOW

I def want a tuner...but I have a question. What will installing a cam do to your warranty? I know they have to prove the new part is what caused the problem...so I guess I should ask other than a faulty install (install including tune), what are some problems to expect with changing cams?

You should take it to them for warranty work and tell them you're hearing a high pitched wooshing sound, lol.
