After all these years, that is still a sharp looking truck. What do you have in it to make the TQ so much better than your HP?

Usually trucks have long stroke compared to bore as far as cylinders go.
just something to give you an basic idea..
More stroke and less bore = higher torque less hp (low reving engines usually on trucks and tow vehicles)
less stroke and more bore = higher hp less torque..(high reving engines usually in light cars)

thanks.. I was looking for \/ \/ \/ \/ that stuff.. I came from a Hemi before the JK and the difference from TQ & HP was generally around 30 on a modded engine. Seeing 89 more Ft-lbs than HP when HP is over 400 takes some effort.. and can definitely get up some speed to get down the .25. I imagine gears limit some speed here.
