2011 Ram 1500, JBA Headers, Straight Pipe No Resonators, 5.7L V8 Hemi
The camera is set about 8 feet away from the truck...
Recently I switched from having a 14" Flowmaster Super 40 to removing the
muffler completely, I enjoyed the lower tones of the FM40 however at the
higher RPM range it seemed a lot of the tone that makes the Hemi sound so
awesome got washed out and it was just loud noise. Now, paired with the JBA
Headers I couldn't be happier, it sounds great cruising in town and
hammering on the throttle is very rewarding to say the least. Idle is
about the same as it was with the muffler, though it barks a little more on
startup, once it settles down it's right where it used to be. Up to 3k RPM
it's notably louder but by only a couple decibels above what I had
previously, but once you get into the peak red line range its quite a bit
louder, and much more "throaty".
I'll be getting a couple driving/cruising vids up soon so you can also get
an idea of what resonance in the cab is like, which for me is on par with
the FM when cruising on the highway, and city is slightly louder.
2013 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi Straight Pipe
Immediately after purchasing my new Ram, I had the muffler removed and
replaced it with a Y-Pipe. Everything else is still stock, leaving the
resonators and catalytic converters.

2013 RAM 1500 vs Ford F-150 Drag Race & Burnout Mega Pickup Mashup
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ram 1500 has a HEMI V8 that sounds like
God laughing. The 2013 Ford EcoBoost
has two less cylinders but two more turbos. So which of these American pickup is faster and which will do a better
burnout. We decided to find out over at TFLtruck. Starting next week on the
Fast Lane Truck we'll be pitting the Ford F-150 against the Ram 1500 and to
make this mega Mashup even more fun we'll throw the newest 2014 Toyota
Tundra into the mix. But for now in another fun and informative TFLcar
video, here's a sneak peak at what the boys are doing over at The Fast Lane

2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel Review and Road Test
There's just something about a diesel pickup truck that makes grown men
regress into Tonka-loving children. Even my Prius-driving environmentalist
friends in Berkeley admit they secretly want a diesel pickup. The problem
of course is that diesel pickups are expensive (the cheapest diesel Ram
2500 is $36,975 and it doesn't have an automatic transmission, the cheapest
oil-burning F-250 is $38,250) and, for the majority of us, the high payload
and towing capacities are overkill. While economical in a specific sense,
the large diesel trucks aren't "fuel-efficient" either. Until now. Mark
your calendars folks, The 2014 Ram 1500 Eco Diesel is the half-ton truck in
America sporting a small diesel engine.
Although new in 2010 and refreshed for the 2013, the 1500 is undeniably a
Ram. That's because Chrysler prefers evolutionary rather than revolutionary
styling when it comes to their volume truck. That's not a bad thing, since
the 1994 style cues that have lived on were sexy back then, and still
attractive today. The big-rig front end still captures my attention, but
despite my family's Ram addiction, I find the 2014 Silverado's nose to be
the better looker. As with most redesigns, the front end got bigger,
brasher and has more chrome than ever before.
In 2007 GM purchased 50% of the Italian engine maker VM Motori. The logic
was that GM needed a smooth Euro compliant diesel engine for the Cadillac
CTS (and other models) in order to compete with the Germans. Sadly, GM
declared bankruptcy between the engine being designed and the engine
actually being used so it sat on a shelf. In 2011 Fiat bought the other
half of VM Motori and found the engine gathering dust. Fiat had some quick
tweaks done to the engine to make it more suitable for their use and the
EcoDiesel V6 was born. While there was much talk about GM getting their
hands on this same engine for Silverado duty, Fiat recently snapped up the
other half of VM Motri making this a Fiat/Chrysler engine in every way that
The high revving single turbo
aluminum-block V6 engine produces 240 horsepower and a stout 420
lb-ft of torque. If those numbers sound impressive, consider this. The
first 5.9L Cummins engine Chrysler used in the 2500 and 3500 series RAM
trucks produced 94 fewer ponies and 20 fewer twists. In the biggest
statement of progress I have seen in a while, that Cummins also delivered
its power via five fewer gears.
Like the rest of the Ram 1500 lineup (except for one model with a 5.7L
HEMI), all 1/2 ton Rams now use ZF's 8-speed automatic transmission. If
you're worried it's just a passenger car transmission that's not up to the
task, ZF's 8-speed transmissions are also found behind the insane twin-turbo V12s that the Germans love so much.
