17Ram2500 I waited until 100k and put a Calibrated Power tune on it. Night and day difference. I"m still emissions legal, in a nice truck, but it sure does have more power and a lot better transient and mid-range response.

But I agree. These trucks are slow. The Fords and Chevy's will walk them, no doubt about it. I still like my Cummins.

14MCDually A year old but ill still comment. I have a 14 aisin. Total crap for down shifting, sometimes takes up to 3 seconds. My trick for instant shifts is manual shift it. Also get efi live and full delete, really perks up the truck and holy smokes did my fuel bill ever drop. Even the lie-o-meter on the dash went from 21 average to 16-17 town/city driving. Highways im at a cool 14. .....Canadian numbers btw.

I loved my truck untill a new Canadian in a semi came around a 70 corner in the winter at 100+ and used the drivers side of my truck to keep his trailer on the road. Douche bag didnt even stop. 37000$ so far into the fix, its in the shop for the 5th time.

It has a 3rd truck lane that also serves as the entry lane. Getting on the freeway there, pulling my Raptor @18000 lb, when I put ‘er to the wood I can get up to about 60 going up that hill. If you are only pulling 3800 lb and can only do in the 50 MPH range, you definitely have problems.
Don’t compare your Ram to the Ford, they pull different......just the way they are. I have had a bunch of Fords.....Good trucks. I have had a bunch of Chevy’s, they all left me on foot. This is my first Ram, so far I am happy. But the Cummins has altogether different characteristics than the powerstroke.

Throttle boosters do not void the warranty.

Life's too short to be driving a truck you don't like. So if it's that bad, go get a Chevy. I was so unhappy in my last couple Ford trucks and tried out a 2014 ram 3500 and bought it that day! Best decision I ever made, it puts a smile on my face every time i drive it!

Go buy your Chevy. Think that will make you happier.
Your Chevy was deleted. What’s yours now?

I highly doubt it would matter. Its not a life threatening (ability to get sued) situation in FCAs eyes so its not worth having a immediate fix for the situation. Maybe they corrected it in later years however the need to rewrite code for a previous year is not high on there list unless it poses more then just a customer inconvenience.

Besides they have the new jeeps with track bars falling off (they didnt learn with the 2013/14 trucks) to worry about.

HeavyTwo WINNER! I AM THE WINNER OF THIS POST

I suggested the Throttle Booster.

I'm sure there is nothing wrong with his truck. The way RAM has the throttle control on some trucks is very weak.

I've test driven some 2015 / 16 RAMs. They had lackluster acceleration. Not expecting a sports car, but having the ability to cross traffic, would be nice.




Adding a Throttle Booster does not JUST make it like you are applying more throttle. Those that have never used one, seem to think its the same as " Just Pressing the gas harder". It's NOT like that at all. It actually changes the shifting of the truck too, causing a downshift sooner. Its hard to explain. Example, I've had a Throttle booster for over 1 year. I recently tuned and deleted, removed the throttle booster. Even at 150HP tune, truck was not good as it was with just the throttle booster. I would say a truck with just a Throttle booster, will feel like a tuned and deleted 150HP truck. (at least in town driving, on the open road, you can defiantly feel the 150HP tune.)

K9Kodi That pedal booster does the same thing as giving it more gas just with less throttle. You can try an injection duration box or find the root of the issue
