in my defense...as I said...mine was a pretty good bit off, but, I don't know what to say. I noticed a difference...lol
But, then again, all the stuff I have done to my truck, maybe it took full advantage when it was adjusted properly?
But, reading around, this is apparently a mod people have been doing since these trucks came out, along with moving the IAT...so, probably one of those things that, its in each's opinion, and is just a free mod.
And, also, you have to remember, every vehicle is different. You can have to same exact engines built the same exact day in the same exact machine, and there will be a 10hp difference, so, maybe not all will respond in the same way.
I am going to try and drill mine out a little bit as well to see if it makes a difference.
But...it may be making a 10hp difference in the truck, and, being I run mine hard all the time, I notice a tiny change. I can tell when the temperature dropped 5 degrees...lol But, a normal person, or someone with a 4x4 ram might not notice a simple 10hp increase if its anywhere near that. You have at least 4400lbs of truck, so, 10hp is going to be very minor...lol
Mostly what I believe this does, though, is not increase horsepower or give anyone tire smoking launches, but...lets the computer change variable for the engine more efficiently, making it run correctly, taking full advantage of all 318/30 cubic inches of Dodge supplied power.
If you didn't notice a difference, it could have been simply that yours was in good shape to begin with.
Many variables in this, so, no one will ever know for sure unless put on a dyno, so...haha.
But, I apologize if I somehow mislead anyone into thinking they'd gain 40hp out of this, but, i noticed a large improvement, and, my truck honestly did spin the tires from a roll (which it has only ever done a handful of times on dry pavement). But, keep in mind, my truck is pretty light, has been modded a little bit, and is at sea level (air pressure makes a huge difference). So...as I said, many variables.
But...please don't hate me
