Raced a 2011 Hemi
 
I have been wanting to race a hemi for a while now since I got my programmer and intake. This is my buddies ram, all he has is a muffler swap to a flowmaster super 44.

Here are the trucks.

We ran from a red light dead stop to 80 MPH.

I shifted myself and launched at 2000rpms. He doesn't understand any of that so he just punched it hahah.

I have to say I did better than I thought I would. Off the line he got about a truck length in front of me and I stayed about a truck length back the whole time. He started creeping away once we hit about sixty. It was good fun and I just explained to him about how his truck cant be programmed he was a little disappointed hahah. He is letting me debadge his truck and install some HIDs. I still can't convince him to join the forums.

I'm impressed that you managed to hang with him like that, well done. Sounds like a couple mods and you might be right there with him.

That's what I'm saying! Pretty impressed with my little semi hemi hahah. My programmer definitely helped with that one haha.

What mods do you have besides the tuner?

GeauxHunting 09-13-2011 12:00 AM

Engine wise... just an intake, and my own custom tune, but I have 3.92 gears and I believe he has 3.55 or maybe even the 3.21's or whatever the lowest offered is.

Man, you throw a couple more mods on your truck and you should be able to be right there with him. Have you ever datalogged any 0-60 times?

Nothing precise, but I did it with a stopwatch in one hand and I was around 8.9 - 9.8 every time I timed it.

I was considering a cam, shorties, and catback exhaust, but I will be getting a new truck within a year and I didn't want to throw that much money into the truck before I got rid of it.

EDIT:: I forgot I also have a 180 tstat, but that isn't doing too much besides keeping my engine run cooler.
