I’d start with an unlocked PCM and good chassis dyno tune. Assuming you don’t care about the factory warranty that is. No real performance gains from the usual bolt-on options without the ability for a tune.

She's plenty fast for me. I did the Hellcat air box, a catch can, and a Scat Pack bee emblem on the rear spoiler. I'm very happy with it now......

Well the factory warranty I'm really not happy with. It's got a rear main seal leak that every shop I take it to can see it except the dodge dealership. But on to the fun stuff. So on the unlocked PCM what direction would yall suggest. Diablo or like HP tuners

My engine builder/tuner will only use HP. Once you have that done, you can better mod at your own pace. Long tubes are a nice add for some growl and a few horses. Cam is a popular add but be careful to have someone do it with experience. Needs to be selected per your goals and engine specs. Not just something out of a box because someone says that’s what everyone is using.

We have had excellent luck with Diablo products in regards to the unlocked PCM and the I3 tuner is a great option too. What are you going to use the car for mainly ? Also what budget are you trying to stay within ? This will help a lot of us recommend parts we have used.

My first mods:
Catback - Zoomers
Catch Can - Speedlogix S Mount
CAI - Carbon fiber

- Alexis

I've done mods for 30+ years, just ready for and enjoying a DD now with a few personal touches. The HC airbox and dry AEM make for a deeper intake growl. Plus it's a conversation piece. Post up the mods you choose, I still enjoy seeing what others do.

I'm not a hundred % sure all I want to do yet I'm still kinda playing with ideas but i do want to start off on a good basis. I have looked at both the HP and the diablo and was leaning twared the HP. I have done a few builds but it has always been something half way done by someone else. Everyone I have had to take steps back to move forward. I'm thinking I want forced induction. But I have one of those already. As of price range that varies lol one day I might have 100 to spend next year might have 10 thousand

Do you have good traction? If not, more power will only make that worse ;)
