Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

The intake manifold is the difference. The runner length is variable based on RPM.

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

I thought another reason it was de-tuned is due to heat? RAM has much more space under the hood. Considering the WK2's shorter intake, increased sound insulation and smaller underhood space, it seems like detuning the engine to increase driveability would make sense.

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

If all that is different is a de-tuning of the Jeep HEMI, then in theory, once a tune is released for our WK2's then it should be able to unleash that additional 35+ HP? I doubt it... I hope I'm wrong though!

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

Probably because they have more confidence in the RAMs solid axles. They can get 500HP for sure if they wanted to but dont want to warranty anything!

your 100% right its the intake manifold and throttle body. The ram has more clearance. Also the exhaust manifolds on the ram have a more free flowing design then the WK2 due to tight packaging on the wk2.

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

Now comes the question; Who makes custom intake manifolds for our wk2 and/or a good set of headers that doesn't be too cramped in the engine bay?

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

I just purchased my Hemi powered GJ, and the service guy said there are chips out there for it..(I previously owned a Ram Hemi and noticed the detune).

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

Someone needs to "officially" find out what exact parts are different. I would be interested in a 400hp jeep!

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

I think some members said it has to do with a different manifold and intake on the RAM which requires a taller hood.
