This just sounds like fanboy spinning reality here.
The 5.0 in the Ford's will flat crush your 4.7 if comparing apples to apples in truck configuration.
Let's keep it real.
The fact is, the 5.0 has acceleration times equal to the Ram Hemi 5.7 from the 2009-2012 model year with the 6 speed auto.
Too the op, why did you let off at 65, you should of gone a bit longer to put a bit more space between you. hehe
