It was rated as 3000 but was more like 3500, so even at part throttle the truck would be at 4000 rpms causing the trans to shift through all the gears to fast and bog the motor. WOT on these trucks is set at 5600, I cant really figure out what the part throttle shifts are at but going to high in the stall seems to cause it to shift through all the gears before you get any speed going. But then again I may have just gotten a bad converter. It is out now.

I recommend going through Cdnoilram's build thread for some ideas. His build is right HERE.
Might not be the same here, but he still has some solid mods and ideas of what you want to do.. Another Ram to look at is BlackRamHemi and his build thread here.
