15 from exhaust and the 22 from the tuner, thats appx 47HP+. So am I running appx 390hp im confused.

numbers are inflated..you'll be lucky if you get 300 at the wheels..seriously...

chefred112 07-22-2011 01:21 AM

numbers you always see advertised are from the flywheel...you lose a ton by the time it gets to the wheels..

I need to spin mine one of thes days! I'll do it after the DSP goes on and the CAI. I've seen a few stock rams do anywhere from 305-315 @ the wheels.

..and that's with the new gen heads..much less for us 3rd genners..

True! We have a good jump :) Still plenty of room for improvement!

you can do everything under sun to that engine, wont do noting if you cant get it to the wheels, often over looked is the torque converter and shift kit, try that :rockon:
