If you just loaded the 93 tune and didnt upgrade to 93 octane fuel, you are gonna get lower performance. Something to due with detonation in higher RPM's. Best to stick with 91 tune and 91 octane for now. I had a 2003 and I remember doing something in the wiring for the transmission to improve shifts. You remove a pin from one of the connectors or something. google search it..it made a difference

Ive got 93 oct fuel in the truck. And why not change the y pipe. I know its not a big deal but it will definately help. Its so restrictive. Ill get some hp numbers here in a few weeks to see what this is all worth. Im gonna see how much difference there is between the 3 tunes. I wanted to do it sooner but dyno at work is busy.

I think sharadon's 4x4 does work. Not completely sure on that though

But what about a 4G 4x4 with the same mod's as you ?

My 10' RCSB 4x4 is about the same weight as a 2WD QC
and with just Intake,Exhaust,Diablo canned 93 Tune
I've run 14.5's on my 90lb 20's and 305/50 Terra Grapplers (3.55 gears)

With 27" DR's my shitty 3.55's effective ratio changes to about 4.30:1
....13.8 @98 at 2500+ DA (13.4/101 DA corrected)

Buddy's 2WD RCSB is Not much quicker than me, certainly not a full second!
and it's an R/T with 4.10's vs my 10' RCSB 4x4 with 3.55's

Same intake,tuner,exhaust... even tires!

Both Trucks at the time (last October) had identical Airaid intakes,
Bullydog GT 91+ Tune with same shift points and settings, He had Flowmaster exhaust, Magnaflow for me.

Both were running identical 295/45R17 Micket Thompson Street ET's on 17" aluminum wheels.

Here's Adam (white R/T) swapping drag tires on in the pit.



Staging Lane:



Time slip:
(DA was Higher than normal that day 3550')



He was only about 3 tenths quicker,
... but he had the lower gear ratio and 2600 stall advantage out of the hole, in addition to being 200lbs lighter.
I only beat him by 0.03 because I cut a better light.

If we both had 4.10's it would have been even closer.

When he's on his stock 20's/Goodyears I can take him down,
his 4.10 vs my 4.30 effective gear ratio on my smaller/lighter DR's:



The only changes I've made this year (so far) are Diablo Trinity 93 Tune, Y-pipe and a Catch Can.
Ordered but not installed yet: 85mm Fastman TB, JBA Shorty Headers, 2800-300 stall Edge Torque converter

Still going to run my 3.55's until next year, then maybe 4.56's and a DTT.

Kind of disapointing it dont do much. Maybe time to change vehicle brands if the hi is that pathetic. And im die- hard mopar fan but the truck is shit ass slow. There im done venting.
I guess you went up against the V-6. That thing according to ford pulls 265HP around 240 Ft Lbs with a curb weight of 4,000. That thing has a lot less weight. I bet if you were rolling you would have easily taken him, our trucks are big ladies.
