I'd certainly clean the TB and replace the fuel filter as suggested above, but also run a tank or 2 of SeaFoam before considering any other more expensive work. How many miles and were the plugs...

Is the noise from under the car or under the dash? Shoot the clutch pedal pivot point with a lube, then get a CAI & custom tune and rid yourself of the driveability issue while picking up 20-25...

The 05's thru some '07s were plagued with some issues. Check the TSB's (there's a LOT of 'em) but '08 and up are your best bet.

Is that the only symptom? Could be quite a few things. I'd start out with cleaning the TB and running some fuel system cleaner thru a tank or 2, then go from there.

The '11 5.0 puts down roughly 350-360 RWHP stock. An aggressive custom tune will add about 40 RWHP to that. Cams and LT's may add another 30-40 RWHP (I'm very unclear on the 5.0's response to cams...

Most tire specs will tell you the width range for the wheels for a proper fit. But I'd consider tire compound as my first concern and tire width as secondary. Seeing that you're in Maryland, you...
