But that being said, it wasn't the money that had me staying stock. It was my driving style. I don't drag, floor the throttle at highway speeds and I keep close tabs on all of my engine/trans vitals. But most importantly, I took advice from the experts at Inertia, Modern Muscle, Hemifever, Arrington, Paramount and Circle D. All said to run the crate 392 as-is for now and get the tune perfected. Then if the trans goes, address it. All felt that since I have an R/ T that is light weight for a Ram, 2WD, 4.10 and a 2600 stall that it stands the best chance of lasting a long time if taken care of, especially considering I have no plans for forced induction or other power adders.
Ok I feel late but you have a 392 in your truck? How hard was the install?
