Well I haven't had a chance to run the truck yet, but the red LT1 camaro I barely beat, just ran a 14.45 @ 94 last friday night at the track in 1500DA. So I would think the truck would do the same or even a little better...14.3 at best.

It has 3.90 gears now, and I'm about to pull the trigger on some 4.56's. Thats what all the chevy guys go with in their trucks and it doesn't hurt MPG's a bit, maybe over 70, but nothing under is affected.

I will admit that it is damned fast... but like a few of the others, it IS a chev powerplant in a ram... and it just feels dirty to me

Why not a late Hemi? I'll take the 440 if you don't want it.

440 is sold.

The reason a late model hemi is not in there is because of cost. I did this complete swap for $1700 incuding the transmission, t-case, computer, stainless headers.

How much are late model hemis going for? Also if you can find a transmission to fit the late hemi with a t-case that has a pass drop front shaft let me know.

Plus the LS1 is all aluminum, pretty trick shit
