More info needed, like what year, what V8, what transmission.

They have been building Rams since the 70's. The V8's have ranged from pathetic 150 hp 2bbl 318's to 375 HP 440's.

Did I hear you correctly....Did you say you had 3" pipes??

It all depends on how much you want to spend...Some people don't like to go crazy on a v6 because they consider it money wasted, especially if they plan to upgrade to a GT or a cobra one day. If I were you, I'd get the crank pully from VMP, a full-length intake, and gears (3.73s if you do a lot of highway driving, 4.10s for the opposite).

With those mods and your exhaust (which I hope is not really 3" pipe, but rather 3" tips) you should be able to take him easily. Good luck

If my little 3.0 auto can hang with a 5.4 f150 4x4 then u should have no problem taking the ram if it only has the 318 in it.

f-150 crew cabs are slow.

a ram with a 318 could probably take him. i had a friend with a 99 ram with the 318 and he raced people all the time - and he won quite a bit.

you're kidding, right? you plan on street racing the day you get youre license??? you have no driving experience, and you think you can just go race on public roads? i hope you get caught and lose that license.

I've raced dodge 4x4's before...just playing around. They're pretty sluggish on the takeoff cuz they gotta get all that weight going...all depends on what the guy has done to the truck, bigger tires = slower, etc

this is for chips. I was only joking i am to big of a chicken to race. I also have handcontrols so i am just trying to learn to drive with them.(It is kind of hard and kind of not hard). Anyways one speeding ticket and my beautiful 03 v6 stang is gone. So only racing i will do if i do any is on the drag strip.

A little tip for you..if someone wants to race, carry it to the track. After being pulled over for racing before...it's not fun, just carry it to the track man, you can have fun, and have a slip to prove who really won.

this is very sound advice.


coolstang - if you ever feel the need to race, please keep it at the track. one of the members of LSS was killed while street racing last year. it's become an epidemic here in san antonio... 18 teens have died recently in 6 seperate crashes all caused by unsafe driving and/or street racing.

yes, sorry i came off as a dick in the first page of this thread, but this is something i feel strongly about. just remember that there are countless factors that you can't control on public roads. i personally saw two teenagers die a couple years ago while they were doing something incredibly stupid on the road
