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

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

Woah, those are some big results for less than a grand, 100 more HP to the wheels, wow!

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

+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?

it will void the warranty on your engine

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