dual exhaust, power programmer, tranny shift kit, bigger throttle plates, turbo/supercharger (big bucks), NOS. depends on your budget

finding a good programmer has been a problem, any recomendations? and where do you even get bigger throttle plates, I don't have any desire to get nos or to go the turbo/ supercharger route, thanks for the response.

Programmers are tough for Dodge because they keep their technology more to themselves than Chevy and Ford. You might try to see if Mopar Parts have anything, available through your dealer. It's early for the bigger throttle plates for an '06 yet.

On the exhaust I would suggest true dual with headers or if you are going to stay cat back dynomax makes a great muffler for our trucks. The Y pipe on some trucks is a horrible bottleneck so if you can enlarge that it would likely be very bennefitial

SUPER CHARGE THAT HOE, which by the way the whine of the supercharger will make u a very happy man. Try the paxton Supercharger but its not specifically made for your type engine
