Maybe the motor can produce 360 HP, it only reaches that peak at a certain rpm, probably not at 1500.
HEMI Torque Curve from dyno

Only thing I found... it puts out more torque than I thought at the low rpms.

Thanks. Your right, the torque curve looks pretty good. But, at 1500 RPMs the HP is <100, on all 8 cylinders. Its when the mds cuts in at low speeds that I really hear and feel the rumbling.

Since I have gotten into a habit of turning eco mode off it is like driving a totally different vehicle, one I like better.

I wish my ram had eco mode, I don't mind the rumbling and thr vibration and would love to get a little better mileage. I wish it would stay in mds a little more on the expressway as well and not kick out at the slightest hint of a hill or wind.

Nice, I'm surprised at how much torque is being produced at the lower rpms.
