stock vs stock, wouldn't be a contest. New hemi's are rated at 390hp. We're rated 140 less, Lol.

From a dead stop, I've got my dad's hemi (03 hemi 2wd, reg cab, short bed) up to about 45mph, then, he just walks away...and both of ours just have exhaust work. So....

Wouldn't be too hard for us to have them, there, Alex A different grind cam would probably be enough to tighten the gap, because our cam is for nothing but off-idle, instant torque. The complete opposite of high performance, racing wise.

As far as torque, we're right there with them and almost 600lbs lighter, so...that makes quite a bit of difference.

Horsepower...thats why after 45mph, I lose...our 5.9s don't have that...haha.

As I said...I think it'd be an easy fix.
