They also have tri-y headers and engine oil coolers! Tuff Stuff!

I've seen a few nice ones out there, still prefer the look of a lifted chev over the tundra.. but there new model coming out.. i personally think they are unattractive on the eyes lol.

Are all of you seeing this post in General Discussion? The Mods moved it for some reason.

They are faster, has to do with how Dodge neutered the Hemi after getting its 390hp rating. We dyno 300 or less rwhp, they dyno 330.

They are no doubt holding the HEMI back. Does the throttle even open all the way in 1st gear?

Have not had a chance thus far to race a Tundra, but I keep looking,lol. I have the MOPAR CAI and the DS intune. I am running the DS tune on it, a.k.a 93 octane. It is rated at 30 more hp and 35 more torque. I just know it runs a hell of a lot better tuned. When I jump on it the SOB will smoke the tires for about 1-3 truck lengths. No joking, it scared me the first time I tested it,lol. It is so far the cheapest added power. I would like to add the magnaflow exhaust some day, but for now I am happy.

I havent had the chance to line up with any of the new trucks, no one in my area takes trucks to the track, hopefully this year there will be some. I don't like to street race too much, 50kmh(30mph) over the speed limit on city streets and its a stunt driving charge, they can take your ride and fime you up to 10k. I can do that in 1st gear pretty much with my raised rev limit. I will do stop light runs every now and then, but I get out of it early, its just more of a launch race.

It doesn't really bother me. I was just telling about it. I know the Ram isn't the quickest truck. I think I burst some bubbles here.
