With tuning recently released on the 14s you are limited to bolt-ons at this point... lower thermostat, intake, throttle body, and exhaust are really your only options. Tuning is questionable but the guys with '12/'13 are still having fan issues on their set ups.

Forza is really the only owner who has gone above and beyond on his 2012 and done a Procharger setup and is active on the boards. There are 4 TVS owners but 2 no longer own their Jeeps and the other 2 are not active on the boards. There is a 2014 that has a single Turbo, unknown how tuning was done if its a stand alone or piggyback unit. Finally, there is a twin turbo setup being built right now, they are not even to the tuning stage yet.

Will I need a tune for the at headers and exhaust?

Better than not having one... the problem is that you will loose back pressure and thus loose low end torque. Yes, having the motor breathing better will improve hp but that won't be until the top end. No one that I know of has done a before and after without a tune on a full exhaust. SRT engineers have said that they were able to get 500hp from our motor from the factory but in doing so they lost torque and the off the line performance suffered.
