My 4.7 has GREAT top end power! If I floor it off a dead stop it takes a bit to get moving and then WHAM it hits 3k RPM and its like a turbo kicked in! Problem is with the bottom end torque, which it has NONE! A 1/2 ton truck should NOT have to downshift to get up a slight hill. Mine does everytime. im hoping a tuner chip will help move the torque band lower and put a smile on my face.
