Default Dyno- Actual RWHP

How much RWHP does the 5.9 magnum make? Any actual dyno results? If possible i would like to see a stock one then just one with CAI,Exhaust, and a Programmer. Thanks

i think the stock 5.9L creates 245 HP at the crank.
probably around 280 with superchips performance tune,
of course you loose about 25% of the power in the drivetrain (unless you have a manual tranny), so rwhp will be less.
sorry i dont have any dyno info nor could i find any....
Shhh! Chocolate. Once them deers smell that birthday cake them sumbitches will come a running.

Good find! I can't wait to get my Superchips. I really want to see the dyno graphs for their 91 tune. They claim +50hp and +60 ft-lbs of torque at the wheels! If that is true, then I am so paying the extra for 91!!

every keep in mind one thing! what you do to your truck needs to completely depend upon what you want to do with your truck. if you are going in the tractor pull/heavy tow road you need to leave hp alone and go high torque. If going for high hp then leave torque alone and get hp. THE REASON IS THIS..... torque and horse power is an inverse function. what i mean by this is that as the hp goes up the torque goes down. that is if you do not upgrade both at the same time. so therefore, every time that you upgrade Horsepower...or order to get the optimum results, you need to upgrade both at the same time.
