I beat his 2006 megacab diesel with his tuner set at 110 hp when my 2009 hemi was bone stock.
Hook a 9500 lb trailer up to both of 'em -- or put 5200 lbs. of concrete cylinders in the back (pic below) of both and try it again I know my '98.5 will out-pull a V-10 -- and get double the fuel mileage doing it.
