Default 81 w150 power ram "The Duke"

hey i have million threads going right now so i decided to just ask every question and share everything on here plus i made mistake on calling it a d150 and its buggin me so i made this thread here the other thread so i dont loose the questions i asked earlier

http://dodgeforum.com/forum/1st-gen-...answers-8.html

anways im uploading a video i took the day i picked it up with the exhaust it had on it it was like stock sized exhaust 20" mufflers and out the back and i swear there was a exhaust leak just didnt sound good nor like a big block so i got true dual thrush exhaust dumped before rear axle and it sounds amazing.. but video doesnt do the justice but i will make a better video when i get truck back from the shop!

2.5 true duals are good. That's what I'm running and it flows pretty well.

Not much to do on a 400 without really working it over.
Try tuning it better, adjusting the primary metering screw and what not.

I had found these videos a short while back:
That's part one, there is a bunch and they are long, but I think they can be helpful for you.

vid time.

this is the morning after i got it so motor was cold also sounded alot nicer but only sounded like that when it was cold. (couldnt rev it cause i had the cap off the radiator trying to see if it was a air bubble causeing the overflow to boil over)

this is the quick little video clip i made for my bro to make him come over but ill make a better one today or tomorow. more detail and find a good sounding clip and a few revs
