Increasing horsepower?

Hey there. I have a 2012 Dodge Challenger RT Plus (Automatic) and I'm looking for ways to increase horse power without dishing out ridiculous amounts of money on a supercharger/twin turbo etc. I'm going to be buying some aftermarket Borla mufflers and a K&N Cold Air Intake but other than that I'm at a plateau for ideas. All suggestions welcome. Sorry if this is in the wrong area.

Have the car professionally tuned as well. Bigger Throttle body may help as well

It's a 2012, you're not going to be doing much until someone hacks into the PCM. Now then for bigger bux you have downgrade to years older PCM or go 3rd party like Motec. Good luck with that.

Keep watching Diablo Sports web site and wait for them to announce that they have cracked the PCM.

You're not gaining anything with that K&N intake so you might as well save your money. Just buy an intake elbow to get rid of your stock resonator and get a high flow drop in filter and call it a day. The stock intakes flow quite well.

Any thoughts on swapping the intake manifold to the 6.1, using a kit like this? I've got a 2012 R/T auto and been thinking about some easy ways to increase efficiency and drop in some bolt ons.

Thought about pairing that with a new/ported throttle body, CAI, and catback (assuming I can find a no-drone kit) and enjoying some solid gains.

Swap out your rt manifolds for the srt8 shorties and get rid of your cats.

The dealer tag probably means an update was done. If you are interested in tuning click this link and read..>> DiabloSport Official Website
