Friend of mine has an 08 1500 hemi, when he puts it to the floor the transmission doesnt downshift, it stays in the current gear and slowly climbs up to speed.

I know what you mean about the RPM's being up there...I took mine back teh next day because I thought something was wrong. The mechanic said it was the way the electronic ignition was and that they all started out high like that. If you let it sit for about 45-60 seconds, it goes down to a normal idle. Is that the case with yours as well? Other than that, no issues yet. I have about 4400 miles on mine and I bought it in October 07.

i hope this helps some, on my 04 focus svt the svt group told me that it did this due to emissions, that it needed to too get the cats up to proper operating temps, my 08 hemi does this and i just figured it's normal. hope this helps
