Default need advice

I have 2006 gt I am wondering if a programmer or a chip is needed or just go with cold air and exhaust ? I want a little more power and sound but dont want to spend alot of money. Another question does the mopar blow off valve plate actually help remove un wanted heat or is just for the hissing sound? Any info greatly appreciated I am new to the turbo scene.

The only two thing that are available for the PT GT is a Stage 1 pcm and a Diablo Sport Predator programmer.(DSP). The Stage 1 is a plug and play, it will give you about 235hp ( about 220whp ) and better shifting if your is and automatic BUT they are discontinued so they are hard to find... Then you have the DSP, it'll give you a little more HP but you need to know what you doing and is recommended to get at least a wideband.
Don't get a "CAI" just do the air box mod and get a K&N filter..(I'll try to find a write up on how to do it )
