Badass02Ram is on a distinguished road

I got mine used and realy did not care if it was the 5.7 or 4.7. I have heard from multiple mechanic friends of mine that the 4.7 is the more reliable of the two. I love my 4.7 although it has had a bit of upgrades to help it along like Gibbson Headers, Full Flowmaster exhaust, K&N CAI, Functional ram air hood, electric cooling fans, and HO cams from air ram, but the 5 speed trany helps to keep the MPG in check and the power to the ground. I have quite a few friends here with 5.7s and none of them can take me from light to light but I am the only lowered one and they all have lift kits and big tires except 1 who is bone stock but he is no match.....
