The 5.9L had so much torque. I think it was 345lbs-ft. It wasn't surprising the 4.7L was slower. 15hp more but ~30lbs-ft less torque with roughly the same weight when comparing the 4.7L to 5.9L. ...

Re: Ticking sound on my 2012 GC on cold start up

Most likely what you are hearing is valve noise. I doubt it is anything that will harm the motor.

The 10% increase is most likely the detune being removed. The ram 5.7L produces 395hp, roughly 10% more. That's my guess. It would be cool if the 5.7L got some physical updates
