Aftermarket Stuff

I am also looking at upgrading my truck once it gets some kinks worked out of its power plant.
But i was wondering does the K&N air filter make all that much difference? Has anyone had any experience with a powerchip? And has anybody noticed dodge is hard to get aftermarket parts for as comparde to Ford or Chevy...Really irritating...Maybe be im not lookling in the right places.....

Re: Aftermarket Stuff

A K&N's or any high flow air filter is always a worthwile upgrade, but don't expect the 5hp they claim or anything. At best you'd see a 2hp or so gain. Main gain is your engine is now breathing a little easier.

Chips are over rated. Jet and Hyperchip are infamous for not giving you any power except in the high rpm band and making you run 93 octane. Expensive and you never see the power unless you drag race your 4x4. Even then the gains are small. Best bet for a chip is to do all your engine mods first, then have a chip custom flashed for you that is specifically tailored to your engine and it's components and add ons, your driving style, and what fuel you would prefer to run. Costs more, but actually works.

The 94+ Dodge Rams are just as accessorized as the 88-98 GM trucks and 90 and up Ford trucks. Go look in a JC Whitney or Summit catalog. There's very little available for a Ford or a GM truck that doesn't have an equivalent for a Dodge.
