I thought it was due to the torque converter or the 22" wheels since every other hemi ram can tow more than that with the tow package(which I have)

There was a bit a of a squabble going on at DT about the R/T verter being a POS with several plastic internals, that's why I asked.

If you ever have issue with your TC, replace it with a good "Custom Built" TC from Edge or Circle D for about the same price.

I ordered mine, custom built to my mods and specs from Andre at http://www.edgeracingconverters.com/

There's two guys on DT (adidas_kn and MGH) running stock SRT-8 exhaust manifolds, (look just like shorty headers)
but they had to customize them to get them to fit and clearance everything.

The steering linkage rubbing the heat shield on the drivers side, and had to be adjusted with a BFH,
MGH had to cut the top flange off of the cats and rotate them and weld them back on.
Relocation of the dipstick was required too, the passenger side one won't clear the frame rail without flattening out the collector area on the header.

blackramhemi: what do you have against regrinds?

I know little about vvt as I don't have it, but I understand it has to do with the lifters. Couldn't you swap out for regular hydraulic lifters and run whatever cam you want....? <<< may be stupid question...

i ran a regrind cam in my brute force and had some issues....noticed metal during oil changes and further inspection revealed the cam was flaking apart....swapped to a billet cam and never had an issue....and the issue as i understand it is the same with automotive cams.....


as for the second question yes you can run a regular cam but its more then mds you also lose vct.....you would also be swapping out the cam gear.....but im not even sure if anythings available to do this type of swap......this is what i was initially going to do but i was going to have a billet cam cut to my specs....
