Couldn't tell ya...and don't really care. I bought an R/T cause I liked how it looks...what I do power wise will be dictated by what the tuners come up with. I can tell you this though...it won't be stock for long.

Yep...sure did...and going from 900+ HP at the wheels to what feels like 200 just doesn't impress me....sorry.
There are a few trucks on here that impress me power wise....the guy in Arizona with the stroker motor has a nice build going, the guy that just had his truck turboed impresses me....I'm sure I can find some more if I tried.

Arguing about what CAI is better, or muffler....blah blah blah....don't care at all.

No turbos this time....a supercharger at about 12psi should do the trick with p&p heads, cam, etc.

And I'm not complaining....just stating the obvious....these trucks aren't fast.
Sorry kids...mid 14 second vehicles aren't fast. This R/T is supposed to run high 13's....still not impressed.
When it runs 11's it'll be a different story.

I own part of one of the largest high performance diesel websites out there...we push as hard as we can and have for years for the tards to stop smoking out everything on the streets. It's a losing battle...but we try anyway.
And 11 second trucks don't have to be smoky....mine was as clean as a stock truck running deep into the 11's.
99% of the people that'll tell you they have an 11 second truck have a 13 second truck.....they just like to make them smoke.

You're right though...big power isn't cheap. The motor and trans in my last truck cost more than my R/T stickered for.

I cant say my trucks faster than others but its faster than the ones I've raced. Not by much but still...I want to take it to the track just to find out what it runs in the 1/4 mile.

My poor truck outran my friends 6.2 GMC and since then no one will race me. They will talk smack but then comes the, "Well yours is 2wd... It's an R/T... (other excuses)" The only fast truck I've raced is an 06 Chevy ext cab 5.3 4x4 running in the high 12's with a 4300 stall, 4:10 gears, stock tires, and like a 175 shot. We were on the road at like 35 MPH, I was stock still, and we laid in it and were dead even. He was an unhappy camper but there is no WAY I could do anything with him from a launch and we both know that.

Chevy needs something. There trucks are gutless stock but once you cam them they run good.
