What type of V-10 are you talking about ? The V-10 out of the trucks vs a Viper V-10 .

No...those two engines are totally different as you found out.

I'd try some more air in, look for a programmer and open up that exhaust a bit.

its not a dumb question, and if it is, well then i had the same dumb question haha. personally i feel the V10 has plenty of power, but in the spirit of "enough power is never enough" im adding a cai in addition to my exhaust just to see how that feels before the programmer approach.
