A very cool 572" street HEMI that had the flattest torque curve I
ever saw - never dropped below 600 ft lbs from 2500 RPM to red
Awesome street engine, pump gas, dual throttle bodies, hydraulic cam, and FAST XFI.
Here is a shot of that 542" pump gas
torque engine launching a very heavy car.
Here is my old 1964 HEMI Dodge.
I was surprised to find out that the new owner took the car to the famous Hot August Nights in Reno NV.
Barrett-Jackson has a special car show award series called the Barrett-Jackson Cup.
From over 3000 cars the Dodge made it to the final 25.
I was a proud Papa.
This picture was taken from inside a casino where the final 25 were staged.
Here is a shot of the HEMI.
This is the engine I build in my book:
"How to Build Max-Performance HEMI Engines"
Its XFI injected with an XIM controller for the coil-near-plug implementation.
It also has an EDASH so the driver can monitor what the beast is doing.
Here is a 542" Mopar wedge I just finished for a heavy drag car where the owner wanted to run low octane fuel and keep the RPMs down, so I used a large stroke (4.5"), and I designed a relatively mild cam, with low compression.
Results looked like a DIESEL!
Well over 700 ft/lbs at 4500 RPM
over 700 HP at 6200 RPM.
Got any trees you need pulled out?
