124 rear wheel hp at 45 mph in second gear. Not too shabby. The hp was still climbing but so was my temp so i had to shut it down. With calculations the max rear wheel hp is around 185. Best of all my competition chevy my friend owns with a 350 only put out 96 hp at 45 mph....:bigthumb:

Truck trend magazine had a comparison test between a Dodge Ram 1500 4x vs. Ford F150 4x the Ram had the 5.9 rated @245hp,the Ford had a 5.4 rated @260hp,they ran them on the dyno the Ram put out 192rwhp,the Ford put out 190rwhp,your hp of (185hp est.)is pretty good considering the year and being a 5.2.

Yeah the best part is after the dyno run I went out and drag raced the Chevy, won by a truck length. Also my rear wheel hp isn't bad considering my engine has 175,000 miles on it.
