Sign it! Hemi Unleash the Power Petition

Post by REALM » Tue Feb 10, 2004 2:43 pm

You don't have to be unhappy with your truck, I'm happy, but if you believe the Hemi doesn't live up to the advertised 345hp/375tq, then please sign:

I've seen one dyno sheet for our hemi, and it said that it has 298 hp to the rear wheels. A truck looses more hp to the rear wheels more than a car does. :-? Could we get more info? :D

How many signatures do you think it would take to cause a stir a DC . Someone on another hemi truck site said there is a somewhat similar petition making the rounds .I signed it not because i think my Hemi sucks I just want more rw hp oh ya !!
I use my 2500 for work and sometimes could use a litte extra

Wipe the steet? A few 4x4s that I have scene tested, have gotten low 15 1/4 with TCM removed. Plus double that mileage of your big block man.

There are short bed Reg cab trucks with no Modifications other than TCM removed and cold air intakes installed plus added PSI to front tires that are getting high 13s. Not what they say they are? Then whats the competition?

I don't see why everyone thinks the Hemi is under powered, personaly I think it's the driver not the truck! It's just like any engine you just got to know how to use it.

I think if it (the hemi) had a wider power band there woulndt be so much kafuffel. It really doesnt start pulling until the 5000 rpm range. A little earlier and longer would be nice. I guess thats what aftermarket is for

i surely hope they haven't removed the TCM. and if they have and they are getting 15's in the 1/4 what the hell is pushing/pulling them? the truck will NOT function without the tranny control module! sorry just ain't gonna happen. you mean the tmr wire? torque management request? different story.
