Default leaving the car original?

Im having a tough time not putting on exhaust/other things on my r/t. I want to keep it as stock as possible hoping this car will keep its value over the years.... However my buddy works at a muffler shop and can do super44's for under 500.

Help me pick some things out....

I want 50 more horse with doing as little noticeable as possible.

thanks!

-Kyle

Easy, bolt-ons... that's your answer, I'd say a cold-air induction and a tuner program would do just that, on top of that I wouldn't worry too much about an exhaust ugrade as that's one of the most common things, I don't think that will scare to many people away from buying something... The other stuff you can just re-install the factory products...
Ohhh where do you live??? I want some super 44's for my truck... I've got Flowmasters now but it's been 5 years and I was thinking about buying new chrome tips, maybe I'll just re-do the whole exhaust, I love the 44's... Man I want you to get them so I can hear what they sound like[:-]

I like the mopar cold air intake and i cut the stock exhaust off within 5 miles. Has magnaflows and the mopar cai and i love it. This winter its getting the diablo tuner or i may go vortex for the supercharger.

Cold Air Intake, Cat Back Exhaust and Diablo tune should get you there no problem. Save your stock stuff and you can get back to stock in half a day any time you want to do so.

I went with the Mopar CAI and Zoomers cat back. Still awaiting the tune...

Where you at in Washington Kyle... North Bend here...

Cheers!

my personal opinion adding things is a big waste of time and money i have spent like 5k extra and really only picked up 55hp. i have put on the mopar cai, magnaflow exhuast,diablo tune, then i went to a guy to dyno and create a custom tune and that cost 1200.00 and after it was said and done i hade 380hp at the rear wheel. i also put the engine strut brace on that was like over 400.00 and i also threw a few other accessories on.

dpas,
Far from money wasted my friend. Now add high flo cats, an X pipe and the cnc ported 84mm TB and you will see the total gains.
You are restricted at the cats, and the stock X weave. A couple steps away from seeing the best gains from the parts you have bolted on....
