I got the tuning to load after much effort, and got the pipes on..
Before I finish that part of the story, I figure I'll share this first:
My last ride was a ram1500 w/5.9l magnum v8.. after a laundry list of bolt ons, several significant internal mods, and every trick I could conjure to build on that platform, and after north of $20k in total mods on it, I had a runner.. for a lifted gasser, I was getting around 325hp to the ground (over four at crank), and on a reliable platform.. I was happy with it, and accepted the 14 to 15mpgs I could get out of her daily driving, or under ten when i dropped my foot.. tq was around 400 to the ground with 4.56:1 gears and translated through 35" rubber.. I was pretty happy..
My family is growing, and I need the space and a reliable vehicle to get around in, and still suite my needs for a work horse.. so, I bought the psd..
Back to the beginning:
.. when this thing is set up right, it is a total different animal.. I wonder how many sales were lost by epa mandates on these things, and I gotta share this, too: it was between this rig or a power wagon.. The ram2500 pw/hemi is a good rig, too.. in stock form it will run circles around the f250 6.4.. I'm glad I listened to what I read here, and decided to go with the 250 6.4.. its not even a fair comparison to the gasser 3/4 ton now..
