Not enough worth the money imo. Id do full bolt ons first then cam so you only have to dyno tune once after unless you want to boost.

You can't... You can only do it on the Ti-VCT engines (i.e. 3.7 & 5.0)

Sound yes. For performance they will give gains but on modulars they are not a good bang for your buck. If you want an awesome sounding car then go for it.

I'm just bustin balls man. I turned a 2010 down cause of the engine when I read the 2011 would get the new engine. If you had an old school engine, cams are worth it. Not on mudular. But for sound, cams sound sick on any car :p

Heads cams and that Xtreme supercharger they have for the 4.0s I have a buddy that has full bolt ons and a procharger and dyno tune no heads or cams and is making 350 to the wheels. So that xtreme supercharger (idk the name but its called xtreme I believe googke can help) will easily get that 4.0 in the 400s withouts cams just heads and full bolt ons.

Start saving now

If you want a supercharger just don't buy anything else and start saving your money for it now. It is still the very best "BANG for the BUCK you can get".

You will never get it if your buying other things

You will be surprised how much you can save if you really try. Up until I got all of my health issues I worked two jobs to get everything I wanted and still bought the stuff I needed. It just takes a lot of willpower to not buy cool stuff.

If it's just for sound, no, it's not worth it.
