Best bang for the buck will be a complete cat-back, CAI and a tuner.
Most popular is the Superchips, a little over $300. The Diablo Predator is also a good tuner, but geared more for a heavier modded truck...

And only for the Hemi as well, I believe.

Must be a custom tune? The '08 4.7 is not the same as previous years. You need to let us know what you were looking at.
