    I think it is around 360 to 385 horses. they told me--don't remember. All I know is i'm still on cloud nine!!!!! Right now I'm getting right at 14 mpg which is a lot better than 7 mpg I'm getting out of my 1988 Chevy crew cab dually!!!!!!! The tough job is going to be keeping my wife from driving it!!!!!

    Sounds like a cool truck. I'm partial to diesel myself, but it would be cool to say, "I have a hemi". And hey, 14 mpg out of a gasser with that much power, ain't nothing to complain about!
    Enjoy the truck.

    There are some Dodge truck owner websites I browse from time to time. I read that one 1500 Ram with a hemi did a 1/4 mile in about 15 seconds. Car mags also say that it feels faster than its specs.
