Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

Just buy a Hemifever tuner. It will add close to that much with supporting mods. It's already been discussed on "what's different": Intake mani, throttle body, tune, air intake on opposite side, etc. -- numerous changes and I doubt it would be feasible to clone the changes into a WK2.

Re: Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

The left exhaust manifold is the same on both engines - same part number. The right is slightly different but the flow is the same. Difference is intake. Ram has variable intake runner length. Longer than Jeep for better torque and switches to shorter than Jeep for more high end power. Best of both worlds. Just too big to fit in Jeep engine bay. A short runer, high flow intake easily makes 35 more horsepower than a long runner scroll type like in Jeep.

Asked mechanics at the dealership about the HP difference, and they claimed it was de-tuned because of the weaker Jeep axels.

Jeep Hemi vs RAM Hemi

2014 Ram tried to out gun me today. We were neck and neck till we let off at 140km/hr. I think he expected to dust me lol. Both of us are Hemi's.
