    Update: Truck has been pullng every load we can throw at it great.

    I just added a new Tach since the Stock one did no work and I could not get it to work :)

    I also fixed the factory throttle linkage so now no worries on all that extra play.

    Does that tach pick up RPM off the alternator?

    How much was it?

    I need one for my truck.

    there are a couple different ways...

    one is to buy an optical tach and put some reflective tape on the harmonic balancer and actually read what the motor is doing and set the tach to match...

    I opted to do it a different way...used an online gear/rpm/speed calculator, and based on tire size, figured out what RPM's it should be running at certain speeds...

    I set it at a high speed/high RPM, and then as I slowed down, I checked to see how close it was...and checked it in other gear/speed combos...

    I'd say it's within 100RPM at any given gear/speed combo right now...

    I bought mine from either JEG's or Summit...

    it uses a magnet on the alternator...it's an AutoMeter...I think it's the ATM-2888..around $115...

    hmmm...now I'm real curious as to what mine would do with the couple mods I've done...

    BTW...I pulled a 394RWHP/456RWTQ at that same place with the '02 Ram with the 5.9L gas motor a couple years ago...it hit a high of 413/486 before I sold it...

    Ya would be interesting to see.

    I am only going to do a few more mods to mine since I know that the Getrag tranny will probably not hold up to much more Torque :)

    Yeah, I think with the mods I have in place I should be getting closer to the 350-375 range. I'll start trying to tweak it some this week.
