Here's that dyno run from last night at HHP. Please note that my Ram will be heading back to HHP for another session later on, perhaps in a week. Josh needs to speak with Diablosport about opening up some of the software parameters for 2012 so he can dial it in even better. Our smoothest dyno was in the high 390's for hp, which is what we want for our low 400's figure.

Only difference is that a 392 torque converter actually has a 2200 RPM stall where the R/T Ram is has a 26-2800 stall.


I wish ChevyKiller was still in town I keep wanting to steal his set up lol Damn Turbo Hemi's...
The 545 causes way more drivetrain loss compared to a nag1. The stall speed doesn't matter since its dynoed in 4th and the converter is locked.

Never did get an opportunity to run into Gabe and his truck, while his truck was at Mikes place. Glad to hear you did
The drivetrain loss is closer to 25-30%. 15% would be a manual car. The 22's were hurting the numbers a little too.

Your not kidding. That is hands down the ugliest color scheme. There is a local guy that did the same paint scheme on his ram... He also doesn't believe that Mike's truck is TT because he hasn't seen it around town

I did ask if you were there because I was curious to hear your impression on the run!

The torque curve (or lack thereof) looks great. I am a little curious about the sudden spike in A/F right after the 5k mark though. I'll have to ask Mike about that tomorrow.
