I'm new to Mopars, having had a long time affair with mostly Fords and one '07 Mustang GT. I can appreciate the fine engines in both makes but I am interested in knowing how the Hemi engines in our R/Ts and SRT8s compare with Fords modular performance engines and Chevy's more performance oriented engines. What benefits are there in one make over the other and how do they compare reliability wise? Just curious cause I know there's lots of long time Mopar owners and I'd really like to hear what they have to say. Thanks!
1. "Bid Daddy" Don Garlits. If I'm not mistaken almost all of his wins came with Chrysler Hemi. He still advertises for Chysler, and has a strip version of the Challenger.
2."The King" Richard Petty. Most of his wins came in a Chrysler powered by a Hemi.
3. The Keith Black Hemi. Damn near a direct copy of the Chrysler Hemi block in aluminum. A butt load of NHRA funny cars and dragsters used that bock for quite some time, if they're not still using it.
4 The Chrysler Hemi is, to the best of my knowledge, the ONLY motor to be banned from NASCAR for a distinct advantage. Even though they didn't really invent it, and every manufacturer at the time had the same opportunity. Need I say more?
