Ram 1500 makes more hp?

I have an 05 jeep grand cherokee with the 5.7l hemi, and mine makes 330 hp, where as I see the dodge ram 1500 with the same engine makes 390 hp. What gives, why do I make 60 ponies less? Shouldnt it be the essentially the same engine?

Thanks,
Greenway

Re: Ram 1500 makes more hp?

thats the 09+ ram hemi right? or 11+ ram hemi? I know the 11+ hemi has a different intake from the jeeps. HP was upped in 2008 or 9 on all hemis on the jeeps to like 360 hp.

Yea, I was looking at the 11+, so what did they do with the intake? Also what did they do back in 08?

Re: Ram 1500 makes more hp?

It's also part in the tuning. You should also look at the gearing. The truck is probably going to have more of a highway gear while the jeep will have a higher gear for off roading. That alone can cause less ponies.

Re: Ram 1500 makes more hp?

the intake mani in the Ram is larger. The same intake couldnt be used on the Jeep GC because of hood clearance.
