Re: Max hp for the hemi
I dont have a hemi in our JGC however i do in my Ram and this is my 2nd 5.7 Ram. with my current set-up im lowballing 450hp on the motor. prolly closer to 360 at the wheels through parasitic loss but yes, they are fairly simple to gain power out of. mine is an 09, which is the same as the 2012 5.7L's just has differant encryption software for aftermarket company's to crack.
Ive got a SC Cortex, K&N Aircharger, Magnaflow and a few others that add here and there. the tune i run adds 44hp to the stock 390hp rating (dyno proven). thats the biggest gain out of anything. the 5.7L is avery strong engine, its the transmission they match it to that causes all the problems, thats why im on my 2nd Hemi Ram.
my buddy has an older ram hemi with better gears and i can walk all over him any day of the week even with my 3.55's. and he has a differant tune, CAI, and exhaust, but all comparable to mine. the Eagle VVT Hemi is simply a beast.
