  7. 5.2L V8 Specific Topics
    I recently got my first truck, a 1992 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.2, and was wondering what mods I can do to it to get better gas mileage. I wanted to put a performance chip in it, but noticed the thing has no OBD connector. Is there still a way I can put one on?

  9. 2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    Anybody have any predictions for the new 2014 2500 6.4 L Hemi MPG...specifically in a Power Wagon model? I've read current owners are getting 15 MPG on the highway. Considering the 6.4 L is larger than the 5.7 L, it may require more fuel...but it will also utilize the MDS, which may make it...
