These guys have received a batch of crate engines.
Contact them quick, I bet the engines will go fast.

While you are at it, be sure to order the blower kit
they have for the 5.7L Hemi, too, to get 470-hp!

I am told that pricing is $6250 for an automatic
and $6500 for a manual. Complete engine only.
You need to add alternator, air, power steering,
wiring and the computer. Their pricing for the
harness and computer will be coming soon.

Actually, here is their actual Hemi price sheet:

Looks like your tab can really build up pretty fast.
But, seriously, an LS1 with 4L60E is roughly equal.

And who would opt for an LS1 over 5.7 Hemi? :)

My friend find your website and had me look at this link.

I had to laugh and said, I know this guy....Scott....LOL

No! It was a good price considering I ran a search on the national salvage yards.

He has a 5.2 and maybe a cracked block thanks to a ignorant Dodge mechanic not doing a inspectin prior allowing his Ram back on the road.

I told him, since there is no 5.2, opt for the 5.7.

I'm pretty sure it will come in both EFI and CARB versions.
But you will need to run a computer no matter which motor
you pick, because of the electronic ignition. Considering all
the electronics you will need anyways, might as well go with
the EFI and get the benefits that come with it.

I recently purchased a complete wrecked 2004 quad cab hemi truck for $7500. I got the complete motor with only 9500 miles on it and every bit of wiring, computer, Throttle position sensor,alt, A/C, 5 speed auto trans, etc. Much cheaper then a crate motor and I plan to sell off the rest of the body parts and front suspension that I will not be using. All this will be going into my 72 Javelin G machine I am currently building. They now make a stand along wiring harness for these donar motors, but at about $995, I plan to reuse the stock harness and modify it.

The truck was a Solar yellow SLT with the painted bumpers and grill with the chrome inserts. I have already cut up the wrecked portions and have saved the front clip including the front structure and complete drivers side body panel. After pricing the newly released stand alone harness, I have decided to go with the factory harness as well as using most of the dash and gauges. The A/C box is too big so I am going to integrate an aftermarket air box into the stock dash along with the A/C parts from under the hood of the truck. I can even use the truck radiator and A/C condensor along with the truck power steering cooler and auto trans cooler. There is plenty of room in front of the radiator in the Javelin to stack all these units, instead of stagering them like in the truck. I had a local body shop worker interested in all the extra stuff, but he has been too busy to check them out. I might be listing them on Ebay soon as I need my garage back so I can start the motor mock up.

Hemi truck body parts.

Post by ProstreetAMX » Sat Oct 22, 2005 10:56 am

I have the complete front clip left and the drivers side doors and structure. The frame was damaged on the passenger side rear so I cut it off behind the front splice. I have the complete front suspension still attached to the frame along with the steering rack. I also have the rear springs and 3:92 LS rear, but the passenger side brake assembly was broken off and would need a new shaft and brake brackets. The housing is not damaged. I am located in Las Vegas and would make a package deal on as much as possible.
