New '05

Well folks I ended up buying the car I spoke about in the new people area. I got an '05 300 Touring with the 3.5. It seems like a decent car. I am planning a tune up after I pick it up. Changing oil and trans fluid. I also am tempted to buy a tuner but want to do the exhaust and intake first. Little bit about myself. I am a big diesel guy. I have a decent set up on my 2000 Ram 3500 Dually if anyone cares. Anyways I just kinda wanted to say hi and see if you guys think it would be an issue doing the exhaust and intake prior to a tuner?

Intake as in CAI and an exhaust makeover won't need a tune. Congrats by the way!

Thanks for the Congrats. RIght now the car is getting new brakes new, new tie rods, new tires and having the windows tinted. Yes I did mean a Cold air intake. Sorry for not being specific. Its funny I am used to dealing with a straight six (cummins) so I am excited to feel something take can rev over 3grand.

Congrats on the purchase. Doing the exhaust and intake before getting a tuner won't be an issue.

I dont have much to say really just super excited. I should be getting my car on Saturday. I am in the service and my position moved me four hours away from my house and the dealer I got the car from.

I do have another question for the experts. Like I said I am going to do a tune up with the good stuffs. And run some sea foam thru it. But when I test drove it a few times. It seemed to have a "floating" trottle responce. When I let off. So an example I am in neautral and jab the throttle, itll go up and hang than float back down. Will cleaning it and giving it a tune up correct this?

The Chrysler programming for throttle responce sucks on all motor sizes and yes it's designed to float back down.
If you plan on tweaking the car, pick up a tuner from Diablosport. It is by far the most effective bang for the buck of any mod you may plan to do. (and it fixes throttle responce)

So I guess that leads me to a questions. Should I do the CAI and Exhaust first or the tuner first. The reason I ask is because with my truck you should always make sure the engine can breath and gets fuel prior to adding a programmer. By the way you guys are awesome. I didnt expect to find this type of following or support.
