Default 95' Ram Vs. 00' Ram

I'm looking at trading a boat for a 2000 Ram 1500 sport with a 5.9 with the intention of using it as my plow truck this winter. I currently have a 1995 with the 5.9 also and was wondering what the differences, if any, there was between the two i.e. heads, intake.... From what I've found from google the 2000 should have 15 more hp. Is that true, and if so where does it come from? Is there anything that I could take off of the 2000 and put on my 95' that would gain me anything?

Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Same engines, heads, guts, etc. The '95 is an OBD I system, so it has an EGR, which will reduce peak power when compared to the same engine without EGR like the '96 and newer OBD II. That, and possibly some other exhaust tweaks could account for the difference.
