I just went to the dealer and checked into buying a deisel duelly Dodge for a new venture I am planning on spending all of my money on. I was VERY impressed with the truck and price. I looked at Ford and Chevy, but as far as Bang for your Buck , Im going with the Dodge.

Guys, 3/4 of cars out there today have a hemisperical chamber. True most of them have overhead cams. But they have about as much in common with the original hemi as the new hemi motor. Chrysler is just name dropping and is trying to capitalize on the notoriety of an awsome engine. Heck, the valve angles are different, the port locations and shapes are totally changed, even the rocker arms are coming in from the opposite side. Don't be sucked in by a clever marketing ploy.

It is clear you can't accept that it is a "Hemi"... but it is by definition of the shape of the head... the old "Hemi" was a much larger bore and allowed for greater flexibility in the angle of the valves.... this small block "hemi" doesn't leave as much room for valve placement.... BTW... what "Hemi" did not have as you put it "canted" valves?

Ford is so scared of their own diesel they put Intertrashiners in their trucks, Dodge bought Fords Cumalongs for their trucks, I guess since GM owns Isuzu their the only people that have faith in their own products.

Uncle Julio drives a Toyota.

Hey Julio, what does your boat weigh on the trailer full of fuel? Dry weight on my 27 Fountain is 4900, add 400 lbs for fuel plus all the other crap you need plus the trailer and Im probably around 6200 lbs I guess. What the towing capacity on the Tundra?
