I think the 20" rims and shaved door handles add 30-40 hp easy. And a roll-pan? Oh ****... that's like 75hp too... sheet.

Even with forced induction it wouldn't even make 300. But 200 to the wheels in that truck would actually be pretty sweet. I just dont see why he didn't go for a 5-oh if he went to the trouble to do an engine swap

no way its making 400 reliably.


you have to have a ton of money in a 4.0 to make that kind of power.

As the above - 400 HP is impossible with this setup, you have to do a complete head work, on the top and bottom end - along with forced induction, custom intake work, and a full cam setup to get it even close to 400.. and that wouldnt even be reliable because of the transmission - anything above ~320 will twist the shaft and start blowing parts left and right.

maybe it has a 250 shot of nitrous that will never be turned on. lol.

I see that on import show cars. turbo + nitrous but never run with them activated.
