Buy and '09 with new Hemi - 370 hp

Do some mods, cold air intake and exhaust...that should get you close to 390 hp!

I've kind of considered it in the far future, when its outlived its usefulness as a daily driver I want to make it into a weekend mud bogger/hotrod suv.

Mopar sells those ported heads for about $3000/Pair. Click to see
The previous posts have some good information too. There was also a guy on here getting input for doing some custom tuning to the 5.7. I can't remember exactly what his plans were...I'd do a quick search.

wheres the fun in buying the heads, I remember the days as a 21 yr old porting and blueprinting Ford Pinto and Xflow heads, blobs of grease to mark where metal needed to be removed, polishing the insides of the manifold where possible recutting valve seats.


glad I can just bolt things on now though, give me time to drive :D

I guess if you have the time and the know-how, you're in better shape than most of us. I don't know the first thing about porting a head...Nor do I have $3K...I guess I'm stuck with basic bolt on mods.*sigh

the best bang for your buck would be to get the CNC performance ported cylinder heads, mopar performance crank and cams with new lifters, etc... and CAI/exhaust.
