    Yeah it was built by my good friend Dan at www.burnsvilleoffroad.com
    He was really one of the first pioneers to go Dodge into a TJ. Believe me it is far easier to do that if you have to smog it than to go GM. You'll spend almost twice as much going GM. www.hotrodlane.cc has the hemis. Not sure which ECM they will use, but perhaps a truck version will be avail (so the interface with the TJ goes easier) If any of you want any info on any V8 swap, please let me know. It's what I do.

    We had a Blown 391 down at the shop that we ran on the dyno. Made 750 HP, running WAAAYYY FAT, and with a clapped out blower. Oh, and that was on alcohol, it would easily make 1000+ on fuel. Thats some good times

    A pox upon all of the "smog nazi's", and their decendants!!!
    AGREED!!!

    Unfortunatly, those days are gone. I wish they were still here, but they are long gone. With all the smog nazi's and such that require all the horsepower robbing smog equipment, I'd say a 345 HP number isnt too damn bad. This is an awesome platform to build off of. With a little tweeking of fuel and ignition timing, a little more cam, and some exhaust work, I would imagine we could see some 400+ HP cars soon. Whats wrong with 400 HP? What did a 331 make? 250, 300 maybe, on a good day? Anything that can move a 6000 pound truck to a 14.5-15 second quarter mile is ok by me.

    I'm getting one horsepower per cubic inch from a pretty much stock Chevy small block (granted, it's a 327 that came out of a '66 Corvette), and similar torque figures as well. I'm just not too impressed with Chrysler's latest "Hemi".

    345 Cubic Inches

    The next line of "300" cars are rear wheel drive, V8 345 Hemi powered! Chrysler is finally going back to rear wheel drive!! YAY! I just cant wait for the day when the make a 2 door, something or other, with a Hemi and a 5 or 6 speed box. Soon, I hope!

    BTW, the V10 Viper motor in a TJ was for a Minnasota Vikings player and it cost about 90K (no that is not a missprint $90,000) to have it done. Personally I am much more likely to go lower gears than to go with more motor. A Hemi is a HEAVY engine, I wouldn't want it out front of a Jeep for me.

    Why stop at 426? Get a 620 Mopar Performance engine or a Keith Black Block. 1000 HP not enough?


    Nice website? Where ya from?

    If I had a 426 Hemi laying around, the last thing I would put it in would be a Jeep. My advice would be to find an old 'Cuda, or an old Willys Coupe and build a hot rod that would make the ricers cry...
