All of the 5.9L engines are rated at 250hp/345tq at the crank except for the standard 5.9L engine in the Durango, it was quoted at 245hp. Expect to lose about 18-24% off of those figures at the wheels because of drivetrain loss depending on your configuration (2WD vs 4WD/etc.)

A 360 is a 360... That fancy R/T name does absolutly nothing for it.
Yup - the R/T package was primarily cosmetic in nature - 1" suspension drop, 17" rims/tires, color-keyed bumpers, etc. Daimler-Chrysler is really bad at doing that with a lot of their vehicles - put a flashy cosmetic package on an otherwise humdrum vehicle and promote it as a special run. They're going crazy with the Ram and Magnum packages these days - GTX, Daytona, Rumble Bee, Charger, etc. - same shit, different packaging.

I've always wondered why people advertise an R/T throttle body or cam for sale. I guess it makes people think that they are getting something really special.

From what I read ... aside from cosemetic enhancements ... on the Durango for example, the R/T came with a Dynomax muffler ? As for the regular 5.9L, it was just a regular out of the dealer muffler .... am I mistaken ?
