Just for added interest...

Complete iron block 6.1L HEMI weighs approx 580-lb
Complete aluminum 426 HEMI weighs approx 480-lb

That's on-par with the aluminum LSx series engines from GM.

At more than one hp per pound, you could almost use those engines in an aircraft. :wink:

If they'd only put it a Dodge Ram 1500 ! Now that would be sweet ! Anyone know what HP Kenny Wayne Shepherd's Gen III Hemi powered 60's Dodge put out ? It was running cat's/emissions controls, and I just wondered if that would transfer to an SRT8 engine. Then again, perhaps I should just look at the new SRT8 Challenger .....
