plate or no plate

The other day a 12 valve just like mine pulled up next to me at a light. We decided we was gonna have a little fun. He had a stick and I had a auto. If it werent for him having to shift he would have blew me away like way bad. At the next light I asked him what he had done to his truck and all he had done was no plate. Thats it. Now my question is would running no plate compared to my 0 plate make that big of a diffrence? Other than high egts when towing is there other draw backs to running no plate? Thanks.

Same thing, 0 full forward is the same as no plate.

your tranny or timing might be failing, plus he could be lying

180 pump with a 0 plate is much different then a 215 pump with or without a plate!

There is a difference between no plate and a 0 plate. My last Dodge had 370s so it was more noticeable. I would say about a 30hp difference with mine. That also lead to the demise of my turbo, hitting 42 pounds at 3400rpm, and having a 16cm turbo housing. The 0 plate would only go to 36 pounds. On stock 180hp injectors it's 15hp at best. On a 215hp truck, it's about a 20hp difference. This is just a hp approximation, because the torque increase is what we're really after.
