Yeah, I have been reading 15.3s to 15.4s for QCs.
That is still pretty quick for such a heavy truck! :)

Safety Wired 426 Hemi?

Someone has asked me about a 426 Hemi that they have come across. The engine is still on a crate, has never been run, and has safety wires between bolts. The safety wires are what brings up these questions. What could have been the original intent for the Hemi? NASCAR? Marine use? Perhaps even for t...

Hemi Ram Timeslips

All you Hemi Ram owners, what are your times?
I know a bunch of you must have tried 'em out!

The best that I have heard from friends has been
a 14.72 @ 98 from a Ram 1500 w/ 3.92 rear cogs.
Short bed and I am assuming a regular cab truck.

Any clue if those early Dodge Hemis would fit in a Jeep?
The wife thinks it would be cool to create a "Hemi Jeep".

And by saying Jeep, I am talking about CJ5s and CJ7s.

1968 Superstock Rumors

Originally I was under the assumption that the 1968
Superstock Dart and Barracuda came with the Race
426 Hemi. But I am now hearing that they were just
Street 426 Hemi motors with cross-ram intakes.

Meaning, 10.25:1 compression and Street 426 cam.
Does anyone have any solid information either way?

The 5-45RFE 5-speed auto for the 2003 2500s:

1 -- 3.00
2 -- 1.67 upshift, 1.50 kick-down
3 -- 1.00
4 -- 0.78
5 -- 0.67

The same engine and transmission in the 1500,
so I assume they probably kept the same gears.

I understand the 5.7L is 10% more efficient than the
5.9L but that the truck now has worse aerodynamics.
(And thus the improved fuel economy is not noticed.)

Aftermarket Issues with 5.7L Hemi

I have received a forwarded message from JBA that they will not be releasing their headers for the 5.7L Hemi for several months.

Kind of lacking any real engine details, though.
