We get a lot of calls asking, "What do I need to do to my truck to attain a certain horsepower level?" If you've been wondering the same, below are various "recipes" of parts that are needed to reach certain power levels along with any companion parts that you'll need to ensure the overall drivability and integrity of your truck. For example, you could grab the highest setting on your programmer to make more power on a dyno run, but for longevity sake, you would be better off with a set of 50HP Injectors, cold air intake, exhaust, and a lower setting on the tuner. Or we will recommend an upgraded intercooler once you've reached a power level where we have found it to be necessary. We are going to mention a lot of specific products, and these are products that we prefer through our experience. There are, of course, many other options available that can get the job done, as well.
Bear in mind that even though Ram says your truck is 240HP, they are quoting flywheel horsepower, not rear wheel horsepower. On a dyno, the actual rear wheel horsepower for the EcoDiesels is typically between 200-210HP. Please don't get sucked into the trap of adding all of the manufacturer stated horsepower gains for the individual products together to estimate your horsepower. This will only lead to disappointment! There is typically a substantial amount of overlap when combining products, but this is a necessary evil. Further, when you see our recipe for 230 horsepower, bear in mind that overall power is not what the EcoDiesels were originally intended for. This particular recipe especially is intended to not only increase the overall top end power, but also broaden the power band so you have more usable power throughout the RPM range, as well as further increase your fuel economy.
