Nice stuff. Mines stock right now but got a stainless Magnaflow dual system and a Volant CAI on the way. Also putting on a set of the new Dale Earnhart Jr. Cannon wheels in black & chrome with either Nitto Terra Grapplers of BFG AT/KO's 285/65/R18's. Not sure about the tires anyone got any opinions? That throttle body sounds sweet. What that cost? brand etc....

I have an '02 4.7L and I have the flowmaster 40 series muffler. Thats the only upgrades for now, although I am always looking for more. I think the next upgrade will be a shift kit and maybe a programmer. the muffler sounds awesome by the way ... I highly reccomend it.

How much power do you think you got out of that throttlebody? What size is the stock one? Does it fit right up to your CAI or did you modify it? I've heard those electricfans can free up a buch of power. Manufacturers claim 15-30? Whats everyone think about highflow Mass airflow sensor? Anybody heard of a supercharger for the 4.7 like Roush offers for the F-150?

Dodges as far as I know don't use a Mass Airflow Sensor.I hear a lot of people have put in different cams and intakes. I would have to believe that would make a huge difference. The old standards still hold true though. Free up the intake and exhaust with headers and high flow intake components.

I don't have my CAI yet but will let you know on Monday when I put it in.

That video is sick Hemifever! Not sure if I can swing the $5,300 bucks for the blower but man thats nice. Hey Nasty! Think I might do the throttlebody since its a pretty painless installbut manifold and cams is getting a bit wild this is my daily driver and with 85K on the odometer by the time I get around to doin that it may be time for a 2010 ram with (hopefully) a 6.1 liter Hemi. By the way thanks for the link to Bionic Dodge there is a ton of 4.7 talk over there mostly Daks and Durango's though. By the way Nasty, any codes or problems with the throttlebody? Also have you heard much about the 72mm that F&B offers?
