do you have the vin? they really made no special edition, its likley a combination of the transmission and gear ratio, the newer ones have a different transmission. the charger may have been a v6? mustang 4.6 v8s are slugs... I would just be happy that you have a little sleeper of a truck...

No all v8s I know all the people except the Orange charger 3d3kr29d18g222125

yes the v8 mustang is a slug...they are under powered romeo 4.6 v8 aka junk

the newer ram has a 6 speed or a 8 speed not a speed demon... so its just a good motor tranny and gear ratio combination in your truck...but no special build
