I was researching longtubes online. Does the 5.7 Hemi respond well to LTs as far as low end torque and hp? My Camaro has LTs but its more of a rever engine (Power comes after 4000rpm--6500rpm). I don't think it would be beneficial to raise the torque band on these trucks. What are your experiences?

You might be better off searching in a general Ram 1500 forum. The engine is used across the entire line, and my guess is the question is more likely to pop up in a forum on the Sport models. Not to send you away or anything, but this is a relatively new forum on a relatively new and pretty limited model, so there really aren't the number of contributors you would find in the more general forums. That said, if you find an answer, we'd all like to hear it. :)

Unless you plan on tuning i don't see how it would be worthwhile. even then headers are normally paired with a different cam profile and tune. in other words if you want real performance from those mods its not cheap and best done together.

Managed to pull this from Moe's Performance, a vendor on ramforum.com, Just for a bit of insight. He was talking about ARH headers
Shorties are showing about 15hp, and the longtubes are making about 30hp...even more with custom tuning. I have 3 customers now that have gained between 60-70rwhp with just longtubes and a Hemifever tune. Those are HUGE gains for such simple upgrades.

The Longtubes also come with everything needed for a Bolton install. Headers, mandrel bent y-pipe, high flow cats, new gaskets, bolts, o2 sensor extensions, and stainless clamps. Everything is there to make this as easy as possible.
