Re: Fram Filters

There was a guy going by the name of something like "Dan the oil guy" who had photos of cut open filters, the Fram looked really bad.

Probably. hemis can run a point higher C/R on the same octane as a wedge, so what octane would be needed on a 5.6-6.5 wedge engine?

Maybe, if you think there's a market for Fast N Furious Chargers, other than that not really. Think most would rather have a 440 or other proper period engine dropped in.

Re: 331, 354, 392 Exhaust manifolds

Has anyone ever looked at the size of the outlet on these manifolds? It looks so small to work with a heavy-breather like the 392. I understand that they will interchange among all the years. What about headers? The best flowing OEM mans are the "4 bolt" mans used on 300s & Chr truck hemis. Headers...

Re: 56' 331 Hemi - octane gas?

According to this site it is officially 7.5 C/R, and some hemis, when measured, have measured up to close to a full point lower than posted C/R, so it could be anywhere from 6.6 to 7.5. Should run on 87 w/o any problems. If you're where Sunoco sells 85 it would probably be good on that.

Re: Need help identifing hemi

VT 350 is a 331 truck Hemi. Basically like the '54 car engine. the '54 4 bl car hemi intake should bolt right on. Don't know what year it is, if the heads have round ex ports you may want to look for newer heads. The '54 car heads bolt on, think the 55 331 & '56 354 heads will work with a locating d...

Re: '56 - 331 HEMI (MOTOR/CARB QUESTIONS)

I see a chevy W/P out front, engine has probably been "up dated". Go to www.jalopyjournal.com then click on the HAMB. Enter "Hemi Tech Index" in search & start reading. Parts aren't cheap, but Hot Heads, T R Waters, Quality Engineered Components, and Rock Auto are sources for parts.

You can see in the bottom pic that it has the tall/narrow crossover. Hot Heads intake is designed to seal that style crossover, or weld it up. Some truck heads have the square car style crossover.
