tuned? 3 years from now maybe.
I drive a lifted ram with big heavy mud tires fuel isnt my concern or id buy a corrola.

paper horsepower expert huh?.... power to weight ratio its been around awhile
Thanks for the replies but didnt wanna ruffle any feathers

I can't imagine that 35s would put too much strain on the big bad Hemi, 37s maybe are a little much but I ran 35s on my Hummer h3 and if that can turn them the Ram will easily spin em...

I would love to think the Eco Diesel could be tuned like other diesels for more power/tq but I really dont anticipate that being available for quite a while and no one is even sure what the gains would be. I guess when I start to think about the break-even point between the two, it is pretty significant. I would expect that the extra cost of the Eco Diesel over the Hemi, plus the extra cost in diesel fuel would yield a fairly high break-even point.
