Which means it sucks to be you in the big gas Ram because Semis were flying by them. What good is all that torque if torque management in the computer takes it all away inbty e real world. Sure it gives you max power for 1-2 minutes to make it give a nice showing in any magazine test, but then it's worthless. One thing I learned being one of the first people to by a 5 7 Hemi in 2002, Dodge more than any other brand keeps a lockdown on any good aftermarket computer tuning to fix these nannies.

Ram's explanation kind of kicks all the "it doesn't hurt to let a naturally aspirated engine rev constantly while towing- that's what it was designed to do" arguments in the face.....
