the hi ram will fit no problem. there is a lot more room above the heads than most guys think. I measured from the intake ports to the wiper cowl once and it was 16 or 18 inches or something like that.
I had one on the GTX for a bit, I went back to the Drag Pak. Over at Island dragway this past Sunday they had the Truck and Smoke show , one of the few gas trucks was an 04 SLT that guy was running a HI-Ram ... and cleaning house in the Gas Vs Diesel bracket race, they were running 1/8 mile. Rick was there with the Purple 05 with the new 426 beast , it went a best of [email protected] ,he was running the Hi-Ram with the adaptor to put the Hellcat TB.
Keep in mind my 04GTX is 76CI bigger, and somewhere north of 150/175(HP/TQ) over your 392 , we probably weigh the same, I ran the hi-ram with the 8sp and the 46RH, around town under 60mph/96kmh it felt stronger with both trans then the DP and at the track the 60ft was consistently better then the DP, reality is it wasn't hitting the tires as hard as the DP, but 330ft on, DP wins hands down.....it's hard to beat the Drag Pak...the Hi-Ram will do it with the 2x4bb(TB) top but single up front TB, it's competitive till 5500rpms.......now that is my experience with my 468 and 46rh.how do the drag pak and hi ram compare? from the drivers seat were there any significant differences that you noticed between the two?
it has been a WHILE since I have heard the XV mentioned! I totally forgot about it.Keep in mind my 04GTX is 76CI bigger, and somewhere north of 150/175(HP/TQ) over your 392 , we probably weigh the same, I ran the hi-ram with the 8sp and the 46RH, around town under 60mph/96kmh it felt stronger with both trans then the DP and at the track the 60ft was consistently better then the DP, reality is it wasn't hitting the tires as hard as the DP, but 330ft on, DP wins hands down.....it's hard to beat the Drag Pak...the Hi-Ram will do it with the 2x4bb(TB) top but single up front TB, it's competitive till 5500rpms.......now that is my experience with my 468 and 46rh.
If I was just running 1/8m or no track time I honestly think I'd go with the High Ram.
My oldest son, races a duraslack in in an 08 GMCrap, it's a high eights 1/4m , low 6's 1/8m truck.....his daily driver is an 02ram/with 08 clip with a us-body 70 supper bee hood and 09 bed it's a rolling motley crew, weighs 4350 currently , when he bought the truck it had an 04(401ci) hemi drive line and computer along with a ATS 545., now it's running a 2014 5.7(362ci) and a 2014 computer with a new Tremec TKX, we tried the HI-ram on the 04 setup but needed the adaptors (sq port to pre09 head) and the hi-ram hit the cowl, not super tight, we could of "john Henry" clearanced it. swapped the heads over to Apache(392srt) hi-ram fit with about 1/2 inch to spare. ran a Hellcat 92mm TB with the adaptor, with out the LS to Hemi adaptor it would of cleared the Alt , truck has no AC ,with the adaptor we couldn't run a filter direct , had to "intake tube" never ran that 401 with any other intake manifold on it and the 545 crapped out once on the way to Numidia Dragway, Did manage to get few passes in last year before it spun a bearing, 11.90s was the best.
The 14 5.7(362ci) set up with a 65RFE 2800 stall , 4.56 gears , we ran the Hi-ram, a 2013 P-car , 14 5.7 truck, a 6.4 truck , Prefix single and borrowed an old XV 6.1 , truck ran low 12.60s with the Prefix, 12.80s with the HI-Ram and XV, 6.4 truck with out SRV hooked up 13.0s , with SVR 13.0s, lots of wheel spin after 60ft, same with the 5.7 truck with SRV hooked up both ran 13.0s the surprise was the 2013 P-car(of a 2013 Charger) that ran competitively with the HI-Ram, higher end of 80's Hi-ram was lower end of 80s
He ran the same 87mm Moe's Tb and base Tune, on all intakes, on the Truck with SRV , HPTuners allows you to raise and lower where the SRV comes in, we played with it a little bit but really didn't have the time to dedicate to perfecting it,
now in all fairness, not all intakes were tested the same day or in the same conditions or at the same track , Some were at Numidia(PA) (Hi-Ram,XV Prefix) which is 975ft Elv 86degree low R/H ,, and some were at Maple Grove(PA)(13 P-car) which is 541ft 90degree ,no idea on R/H and Island(NJ)(both truck intakes) is 511ft, 68degree day.
The 362 is a 2014 5.7 block, a 2014 6.4 crank(3.72) stock bore(3.917), stock eagle heads and SRT392 Manual cam.
When the truck was 1st done it had a 65RFE in it and it's best time was [email protected] with the Prefix.
3 passes with the TKX trans so far(prefix intake) , drive in to Island ,went thru tech , 1st bracket time trial went 12.45 @ 108, 2nd pass 12.49 @107 went out 1st round 12.39 on a 12.45 dial in @ 109.......
It's important that you get a good matching cam with your present setup.

summit has de-listed all long tube headers they are having such stock issues.the only increase you will see from those shorty headers is on your credit card bill. there is a reason you don't see any race cars with shorties. go with longtubes.
for an oil pump, if you want an upgrade then get a stock 6.2 pump. cheaper than an aftermarket pump and the only pump with thicker rotors which will actually give you more flow, and you will see ~70psi from it. depending on the year of your block, machining the mating surfaces of the pump may be necessary but it is simple and any engine shop can do it. the other pumps are no different from stock besides the name and maybe the spring.

i JUST now found a set (supposedly) at tdot performance. hopefully they arent lying about stock.
i ordered them, if they dont come through i have the shortys
the only other set of long tubes i could find couple weeks ago were 2500$
2500 bucks yikes... what kind were they, and which headers did you order?
I am surprised to see KOOKS Headers being that much higher in price compared to the American Racing Headers.welp...
tdot emailed me to confirm my vehicle for the headers.
email chick says RWD cars only.
their website and jeggs both say RWD cars, and all trucks
BBK mfg. website and the de-listed page on summit say Cars only.
BBK website only has shortys for trucks.
i think im boned.
i'd trust the MFG website, i think, right?
car headers wouldnt fit... would they?
there are a bunch of no-name kits on ebay for 1200$
or these (usd) .... lol...
