There was plenty room and my tires don't really hang out beyond the wheel wells. It just didn't make big power, the peak horsepower most likely won't go up with the manifold change but I'm sure the torque peak would go up 30+. I am going to the same place after the manifold and cam change(bigger), and post the numbers again. It wasn't a good combo, but then again with these dodges theirs not alot of info for dyno tuning and what works on them. The truck has more power than stock with out doubt, I just want more. The other day I was going up hill on the freeway against 8.1L chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 crew cab and I got their first. When I exited the freeway he was next to me and told me that he never thought a non-hemi dodge would pull like that, I asked him what size engine he had and he said 8.1 he had a air filter and muffler the rest was stock. I think I'm loosing more than 50 horsepower through the drivetrain to the tires.
