Smile Intake, Throttle body, Tuner

I am the proud owner of a 2014 Ram Big Horn Crew 4x2 Hemi.

I use the truck for every day driving mostly city
I do not plan on racing, dragging with the truck.

Can my fellow Hemi owners give me some advice on how to get the best performance, MPG out of the Hemi.

I am looking at Intake, Throttle Body, Tuner.

ALSO what kind of spray in bed liner and side steps would anyone recommend


Thank You,

I'm running:
Vararam intake - Ordered from Bulley's Performance.
87mm TB - Ordered from Bulley's Performance.
Diablo Sport I-1000- DCX Tuner- purchased from HemiFever

I am extremely happy with all three of my purchases and how they run well together.

You can do some research on these products right here on the forumZ or out in the real world as well.

I only mention the vendors to let you know that they are good folks to work with and treated me well… but you can get all of this stuff from any vendor you want.

There are vendors on this site that offer discounts to forum members so do your homework for the best deals.

My truck came with factory liner but if I were to do it again I'd consider a bedrug… very cool!

Good luck!

I have heard good things about the vararam as stated before but I run the Volant powercore CAI and love it so cant go wrong with either one.

as for tuner I use the bullydog GT tuner and while I absolutely love it (for a canned tuner) I would go back and get the hemifever diablo tunner so I could load custom tunes. just incase you wanted to know though....I got about 2-3 mpg increase with the bullydog and definite power increase in hp and torque, ive had It on for about 50,000 miles and no problems.

good luck with the mods

How come there is no option for a dodge ram on your site? I put in my year(14), then make(dodge), but then there is no option for a ram. Being that you are all over the ram forum, why no option for a ram truck?
