i know this is a stupid question (or maybe not) but i have a 2004 HEMI RAM (reg. cab, short bed, 2wd) with exhaust and intake and my buddy has a 2005 4.7L dakota (extended cab, short bed, 2wd) with just exhaust... my main question is, he wants to race, but ive been reluctent to... just throwing it off and tellin him he knows who'd win... but would i?

yeah, the hemi makes almost 100 more horse than the 4.7... but he does weigh about 1,000lbs less... i just wanted to know if i stood a chance before i gave it a try and look stupid...

I got the superchips and love it so far. It has alot of great options. I do understand not wanting to race somebody in fear of losing, speacialy to some one you know. Then you have to hear about it for the next ten years. You will feel better though if you race and find out, i bet you win.

Hemi

I have a 2004 Quad Cab 4x4 Ram with mods in my sig. My best friend has a 2004 4.7 Dakota 2-door 4x4 with Mopar CAI, shorty headers, hypertech programmer, shift kit and 100shot of NX. Pretty quick truck but he looses b 3 trucks in the 1/8 and 6 in the 1/4! Dont be afraid!:rck: And that was before I install the Edge converter!!!!!!!

I beg to differ . I had an 04 2wd hemi and an 00 dak r/t the dak ran the 1/4 mile a tad quicker. i could win only when i ran nos. ran my son several times. pics in gallery.

HAVING SAID THAT. THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW IS RUN THEM.

My '07 LWB Hemi 4x4 truck with 3.55's is faster than my old '05 AWD Dakota with the 4.7-liter H.O and 3.92's.

Not by much (they're both slow), but enough difference to notice.

Get the superchips install, get the torque management out of the way!

Maybe he was talking the new Dak. R/T. Still only a 4.7. The '00 still had a 5.9, right?
