    Good Day:

    A number of years ago when it was -35 F and snowing, I went through every thread I could find on the forum and averaged power gains by those that posted.

    This is from SEVERAL posts so the data should be kinda' sorta' realistic.

    The info is based on numbers from a Dynojet (non-loading) Dyno.



    AVERAGE REAR WHEEL POWER NUMBERS SRT-10 RAM TRUCKS-


    NA: 454 HP (with Common Bolt-Ons) with no power adders

    ROE: 485 HP

    PAXTON: 591 HP

    Those kind of mods don't fall into a normal "Bolt-On" category. ;)

    the only numbers above that are close to correct is the n/a ones, I remember a few years back when my 06 with a Roe crushed a black 06 with a cammed up Striker head motor on the same dyno, as I remember you and old colt where there.

    Power numbers were collected and averaged from the VTCOA forum only so they are based on member's input.

    I won't be able to make it this year, but yes it would be nice to meet up, pretty much everyone I know with these trucks got rid of them, Norburt might still have his.

    Sounds good.
    We can race our trucks in the Spring before it gets too hot and have some fun!

    Looks like a 3500 foot DA at Castrol Raceway today.

    A decent air-day to go racing!

    FWIW, If I take my average E.T. and Trap Speed and enter them into Horsepower calculators, I get and average of 470 H.P. (Based off weight and E.T.) and Right around 500 H.P. (Based off weight and trap speed).

    Even with the lowest number, based off my simple bolt on "package". I would consider that fairly decent!! I would attribute it more to the very nice tune Torrie helped me build for the truck. We did it virtually with my ambient and operational conditions, along with A/F plots every 500 RPM (Utilizing the AEM Wideband). Torrie would then "massage" the tune to obtain a very linear A/F curve from 2K to 5.5K RPM. We shot for 12.6:1 ;)

    Honestly, all the massive thrust under peak is why the good 'ol Superbeast was able to out sprint my buddies 392 Scat Pack Charger to 130+. Too Fun!!

    Yes, using the same software calculator is good for comparison purposes too:

    A 115 mph trap speed, in a 5585 lb vehicle (mine), takes 797 flywheel (roughly).

    It also takes the same 797 flywheel to run 125 mph in a 4350 pound vehicle, for example.

    It's just physics...


    Yes, we have had Chris Jensen come up to Calgary a few times. There is nothing quite like some lengthy dyno sessions with a good Tuner. We followed dyno pulls up with several driving loops to really nail the tunes down, real world. That FIRST tune in a virgin Quad Cab makes a DRAMATIC change to it's performance.


    My wife and I went to Castrol Raceway Friday which was fun BUT humid and a 4100 foot DA.
    Everyone was off the mark.

    Most of the guys I spoke with were off 1/2 second or more, and 5+ miles per hour, like we were.

    There was an 840 Demon Hellcat running 10.8s at 131. Those are quite the cars! I don't know if it was stock or not because everyone is bone-stock at the dragstrip!! ;)

    Still fun though. :)
