Well you know what the argument is inevitably?...Ford has a GT350, why isn't Dodge doing a version just like that? It's like that for everything...why isn't the Challenger smaller/lighter like a...

You make a good point! It's an ironic position whereby the smaller engine is justified by all manner of reasons of "economy", but then turn around and augment the power every which way possible that...

Heatsoak during hot weather will definitely sandbag these Hemi's (as it would affect most cars, as well). If it's breathing 100+ deg air at the sensor, it's never pretty. If you got the AC running,...

That's the brainwashed masses part. I'm trying to tell you, it doesn't "have" to happen, at all. It only happens because people resign to the notion that the govt knows better for them, and allows it...

Positive change is good. Change just for the sake of change can be destructive or just a waste of time.

There are even caveats to that. Boost coming on at 2k doesn't guarantee that you will suddenly have boost at 2k in any situation. That's why people get fooled so easily by these kinds of specs...it's...

Did you encounter trouble with the timing chain and valve springs? I think that deserves further explanation. ;)

No, the proper thing to do is simply to introduce a new model that will either live or die on its own. A Challenger does not need to be shoehorned into an entirely different mold, just to appease an...

Still seems to be an impressive figure, despite the temperature. With typical 15% loss, that comes out to 494 hp at the crank. That's still higher than the official hp rating, eh?

Yes, 70's/80's was a crucial phase to get us on the right track for mitigating *real* pollution. The job is now done, and it is time for the govt to step out of that ring. Now they are chasing after...

The important context...that time is more about the Camaro dropping to under 3400 lbs, rather than it being a turbo-4.

1:1 is just the "gear" that has no gear reduction. It's just one rotation in equals one rotation out. The gears below have some degree of reduction (which creates the torque multiplication effect)....

On a Mustang dyno, the higher the roller speed, the more "penalty" you will get on the rwhp reading. In 1:1 on a 3.08 axle, you are essentially penalized for the simulated air drag at 170 mph, by the...
