    2020 1500 Laramie Carven Catback Melting Rear Brake Wire.

    That was my thought as well, but talking with Carven and providing photos of everything. It is all installed correctly and they didn’t have any clue why this has happened twice now… So I am on my own trying to find a solution… heat shielding is definitely one of the things on the list. But as...

    2020 1500 Laramie Carven Catback Melting Rear Brake Wire.

    Not sure the best section to post this under. But I’ve got a Carven Catback system that I’ve had for a little over a year. I absolutely love the sound, but I had fitment issues from the start and myself nor 2 independent exhaust shops could get things to sit right without them doing some...

    Warm up piston slap?

    I’ve heard some others say the same. My attempt to solve this problem is I always ask for them to keep the old parts for me. Or in some instances I will actually hangout and watch them from the waiting area. In the case of my manifolds they replaced both at the same time and since the dealership...

    Warm up piston slap?

    I run redline 5w30 as well. I have also experimented running lubeguards Bio/tech. While at one point it all really helped quiet it down this sound has resurfaced. But as for the rest of the valve train noise it has significantly improved those noises. However not this noise coming from down...

    Warm up piston slap?

    My knock is there regardless of temperature. Cold start it is there, after driving for an hour it is still there. It’s actually more noticeable once the truck is fully warmed up because all the usual cold start noises have subsided.

    Warm up piston slap?

    Any update? I have the same sound, most people responding are missing the sound he is actually talking about. Correct me if I am wrong OP, but if you listen there is more of a clunking sound for a lack of better words. I’ve had both manifolds crack and leak and this is an entirely different...

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    I will give it a shot on my next oil change. It’s coming up soon anyways. Might change it early just for the sake of cutting open a filter before the warranty is up. If that reveals anything I will keep it and bring it with me to other dealership.

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    That is what I have thought as well. It’s easier to hear in person. Never had a lower end issue in a vehicle in the past so not entirely what it would sound like. But I have 5 co-workers with 5th gens with hemis and none of them have that noise. Assuming I get nowhere with the dealership and...

    How to: Add Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane assist, FCW & Auto Hi-beam to Ram 1500

    Correct me if I am wrong, my understanding is that all 2023s have the DASM unit. At least on the Laramie? I am toying with the idea of trading my 2020 for a new 23. But I really would like adaptive cruise and the DASM unit has been the biggest thing holding me back from this project. So if it’s...

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    The new sound that has showed up I can hear a good 20+ feet away. And all of these are at full operating temperature after driving to and from the dealership 45 minutes one way. The other sound that has been around you can hear from a decent distance but it’s not as obvious.

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    Well update, seems to me like it is getting worse. So I took it to the dealer today. Tech said he replaces the manifolds all day and it definitely doesn’t sound like the exhaust and that it sounded like some lifter noise. The master tech ended up wanting to see it, so pulled it into his bay and...

    Best exhaust upgrade

    I don’t get to do too much highway driving lately. But the times I do get on the highway it’s not bad, 70-80mph. I don’t know if I can say it truly “drones” but you do hear it. It’s got a pretty consistent tone cruising that I don’t find annoying or intrusive in the slightest. I can still relax...

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    I thought it still had an exhaust leak as well. But we have pressurized the exhaust system while it is cold and searched everywhere for a leak and nothing showed up and just to cover everything we got it hot and checked everywhere again and no leaks can be found. The other thing leading me to...

    3.5 inch lift mileage

    Factory suspension here on 34” tires. In town I struggle to get 14 mpg under what I consider normal driving conditions. I have been able to get close to 16 when I tried driving as efficiently as possible.

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    I appreciate the input, this is what I suspected originally. But I will inspect the few things I can to try and rule them out before making a trip to the dealership, they are a pretty decent drive one way. They have always done right by me in the past, but I just want to have my ducks in a row...

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    I appreciate the response. Hadn’t even thought about the flex plate/torque converter. I forgot to add that I have a tick not sure if it is the same source or not. That is extremely noticeable under acceleration which pushed me to think more of a lifter. But like I said I could have two different...

    And another hemi with a tick…lifters or something else?

    As the title states I have a “tick.” I thought it was just the exhaust manifolds as they were cracked. While that did fix the obnoxious startup tick, this one has persisted. In any videos I have captured it is hard to hear clearly. But in person it is pretty easy to pickup. Even with my carven...

    New 2023 Ram 1500 Seat Belt Chime/Alert

    Not 100% positive but I believe you can also achieve this with AlfaOBD.

    2020 5.7 Engine Knock

    Sound’s just like me, especially watching the misfires. Curious how many misfires are you seeing and are you seeing them all the time? Or just during certain situations? (Startup, idling, accelerating, etc.)

    How to get radio update files

    Does anyone have a link to the update files? The provided google drive link that previously had all the files now says the folder is empty. Specifically needing 39.7
