Re: Dual plug.

Goran, what you've done - and are doing - with that "car" (it's not a car it's truly a piece of engineering artwork!) is nothing short of amazing!

Re: HEMI 5.7 wiring diagram

A good quality shop manual like Chilton's or similar would have an engine wiring diagram. You could try the public library and borrow one and make photo copies of the pages you need. Or try ebay or Amazon.Com if you want to buy one instead.

A 4-inch bore is *probably* safe, but as others here have already said, the only safe way to tell is to have the bores sonic checked first. It's not just core shift from when the block was new that you need to be concerned with, but also, on a 50-plus year-old engine block, there is probably a fair ...

Re: HEMI 5.7 accessories

I can't personally verify if the RAM truck alternator and AC compressor mounts are on top, or that it will solve your clearance problem, but if they do, they'll certainly bolt on to your engine ok.
