We live in a new world where Chrysler engineers really do their work thoroughly,exactly, and the aftermarket cannot cost effectively improve major systems.
Case in point:
-most CAI's are a real waste of money for a couple of HP AFTER the computer adjusts. Most big HP dyno ratings are one or two runs BEFORE the computer adjusts.
-ditto for exhaust. SRT engineers have stated that stock exhaust for 6 speeds are basically straight through. Aftermarket exhausts mostly feature irritating drone, minimal HP gains after the computer adjusts, and impressive wallet emptying prowness.
-likely supercharging/turbocharging will stress internals beyond design strength. One must remember that these HEMI's are not over engineered rendering stresses beyond design limits when compressing the fuel charge.
Unlimited dollars can solve anything, and sometimes not.
I come to these inglorious conclusions after spending hours and hours reading all these websites and the experiences recorded there over the past 4 years.
Now, handling and braking are completely different matters......
