360 here. 5.9 liters up from my previous vehicle's 2.0. I forgot how nice it is to have torque.

I sold my 1004 2500 4x4 with the 5.9L over the weekend. Bought a new(er) truck the same day. The new truck is a 1999 QC 1500 2wd, also with a 5.9L. I just love the power of this engine

^ I need some of whatever you are on.

So you are saying a heavier vehicle that makes less hp & torque, can out accelerate a lighter vehicle that has more hp & tq...

Your modified engine has more HP and torque than the hemi...do the same mods to the HEMI and you will still be left in the dust.

Edit: Reviewing your post again - you said you only have exhaust, headers, and a cold air intake, and you think you have more HP and Torque than a HEMI? You are mistaken my friend...that HEMI will still walk on you.

Know this doesn't fit in with this generation (2nd), but I have a 76 Ramcharger with a 318 with 237,567 miles on it. One water pump, a non-stock 4 bbl manifold w/Holley 600CFM carb and headers.

Put up a 1/4 or 1/8 mile ET.

My wife's D (which is heavier than a charger) can stay on the rear bumper of my truck up to 50 mph and be on my front bumper by the time I hit 75 mph.
Take the same Hemi engine, stick it in a lighter car...
I don't care what kind of headers & CAI you got, it aint gonna happen.
And with the mods you have listed, I'd dare say mine is probably a little quicker than yours.

From Kelley Blue Book specs page on a 05 Dodge Ram Hemi....

Horsepower 345 @ 5400 RPM
Torque 375 @ 4200 RPM

Versus a 01 Ram with the 5.9.

Horsepower 245 @ 4000 RPM
Torque 345 @ 3200 RPM

I love my 360 over my 318 power wise...gas mileage sucks...but it's a truck....If I want gas mileage I just need to get another cycle which hopefully I can afford next spring. I'm guessin the driver didn't really push it or didn't know how to drive or didn't realize you were racing till they were already behind. Your power to rate ratio versus that charger is abysmal.

488 CID 8.0L V10

Awesome flatline torque curve, and more torque off idle than a Hemi ever makes at any rpm.

Who tows stuff on the highway at 4200rpm anyways
