Post Howdy Folks, FNG here


Hey ya'll name is Chuck, I am new to tunedtech.ca but plan on sticking around.

I am a bit more of a junk driver than a tuner, but I can appreciate the genre. My truck is a 1997 Dodge Ram 2wd with a 5.9L 360 and mostly stock parts. I never once owned a vehicle that I did not lose the tailpipe or muffler to, and I have lost both pipes on my dodge. That's what happens when you go bouncing through the woods.

Got it at 60,000 miles and now it is over 133,000 with still the original tranny ( knock on wood ). Most people just don't know how to drive a dodge so blow them out quick. That being said, no one drives my truck but me. It's a gas guzzler anyway, only gets about 15mpg if I drive like grandma. That's hard to do but generally keeping it under 2000rpm at take off is still faster than the average driver. Really is difficult when there is so much more throttle waiting to be unleashed.
