Default Why 390HP?

This has been bugging me for awhile now. Why did RAM stop at 390 HP? Why not 400 HP? Are you telling me they couldn't get another 10 HP with a minor mod (Like not crimping the Y-Pipe)?

Actually to bug you even worse the 2013's make 395HP. Since they went to full electric steering it freed up some ponies.


It is mostly smoke and mirrors anyway. Ford came out with the 2011 6.7 it 789 FTLBS torque, Chevy upgraded their motor to make 793 FTLBS torque. Know what Ford did??? They came out with a computer flash and magically got 800 FTLBS torque out of the exact same engine.

I think the Ram does not you any where close to using all those ponies
That is why you have a Governor on the engine, try going much over 105 MPH
damn, a 215 cu inch Chevy 6 cylinder could go faster then that in 1954

Actually the 340 motor is a LA based engine,as in the 3.9,5.2,5.9,273,318,360,and also the Viper V10.
