Intake:

"performance chips" wont do crap on our trucks. Best thing for your money to accomplish control over air/fuel ratio and give you tuning ability is:

Exhaust, i like URD 3"

But if you dont wanna spend much on the exhaust, then my vote goes to magnaflow.

I prefer the sound of magnaflow much more than flowmaster, but you'll find many people have their preferences.

As far as performance, URD (www.urdusa.com) pretty much gets my vote in all categories. They have most things that you could want

well, i got the flowmaster for the sound(im kinda a flowmaster junkie), as i like it better than magnaflow or borla, but since you are wanting performance, im gonna say go with either magnaflow or urd. i think most magnaflows are straight thru mufflers, and urd also has an exhaust out now for the 4.0(although im not sure how it sounds), urd are performance minded pretty much!

Most companies design their products to work the best with other products that they offer. If you are going for performance. I would go with URD because they offer an intake, cat-back exhaust, and MAF sensor calibrator. I think they are the only company that offers all three. You might get an exta HP or two by using all the same brand.

Your tune is what will ultimately decide that. With both those products and having the calibrator tuned well, my guess would be 10-20rwhp.

I believe they have showed dyno's on other forums of different setups with their product combinations.

For the most part anything for the 05/06 will also fit the 07. With the exception of some minor tweaks all the major stuff has been the same in the second gen trucks. So the TRD exhaust will fit the 07 trucks as well.
