    1.5 million lol nah maybe around 20 or so along with a tune

    around 400 for headers and 250 for intake plus labor if you dont want to install it

    I would say get a cold air intake instead of the cool air intakes there's about a 10 HP difference.

    I see more of us with 4.8's trying to get what we can out of them than any other posts. Seems we should all just swap for a 6.0 or 6.2 for best results for your buck. I'll second the 310 roughly and just know you will be wanting more once you get used to those mods.
