My 2002 was at 450/972 so my butt dyno says it should be right around that number as well, minus some torque. I need an upgraded torque converter from Phil Taylor first (http://www.dieselperformanceconverters.com )and a few tranny upgrades before I can start laying down anything over 500hp. The truck gets baby'ed most of the time except for the occasional folks that hoss the gas on me....then get a view of my tailgate. New injectors and a turbo would go a long ways to crossing the 600hp mark....but who has the money or time?

I'll probably do it myself as well. The "kit" from precision body line in Vegas comes with everything you need except a welder, time, and the ability to read a tape measure. The kit is $2600.

nice numbers I did 532/1021 last year and this spring I got 646/1612 but i think the operator screwed up because it should of been closer or around 1200-1300.. here is the daughter posing with the truck on our trip up north this past week just outside of christmas

My Tow Rig

This is day one of a 22 day camping trip this summer. We were on our way to Steamboat Springs, CO from Knoxville, TN (with stops in Missouri and Kansas along the way). The F250 with 6.7L oil burner did GREAT! I loved having the power, and engine breaking, when dealing with such monsters as Eisenhower Tunnel and Rabbit Ears Pass. Overall it was a 4154 mile trip to Colorado and New Mexico averaging 11.3 mpg.

Traded my Tacoma in for this Saturday. 8-spd tranny and built-in brake controller. Drove a Tundra, Titan, GMC Sierra, but the Ram was just more truck for the money.
