I have a pretty good build planned for next year when my wife is done with school and FINALLY gets a teaching position, but for now I am going to keep it simple ( ) and stick to the incredibly modified kegger, and perhaps an SCT tuner from hemifever to make the CPU play nice. (Not to mention I utterly DETEST my speed limiter set at 115).

I don't want to sink too much dough down on this pickup though... I have a 69 GTO that is in sore need of some TLC, and that is where most of my discretionary monies will go. Mainly I wanted to build something unique and cool for the bragging rights, and leave the super low E.T.s to the folks with real dough in their pockets

Something I'm pretty sure you've thought about already but I'll say it anyhow, how are you going to go about getting more fuel in there. At WOT that thing is going to lean out hard with a 6 Pack.

Stock injectors are 18.75 and I am moving up to the ford 24s. Plus I am going to get the tuner from hemifever, he assured me he could get it to play nice together.

I miss my old 96 5.9 Ram Sport. I'm ready to see how the old magnum responds to this. Good luck

I also wanted to say I think it's awesome guys are still deeply modding these trucks. Around here the 3rd and 4th gens get a lot of attention so it's cool to see yourself and a couple other guys still modding the hell out of these trucks.

Yeah, I used to have a 5.9 with shorties, full exhaust, intake, pulleys, and tune. It ran good for what it was, but the new hemi is just strong.

Default yay horsepower (and the money it takes to do it)

Motors took a really large backstep and flat stagnated during the onset of the smog era. The magnum was dodges' first real attempt at getting some decent smog legal power from the V8.

To be sure, that hemi kicks out some ponies, and there is no doubt there! Ever take a good look at the size difference in the cross sectional area of the intake ports? Magnum heads you can fit two fingers wide and three fingers tall when ported, Hemis... well lets just say you could lose your poodle in there!

but the magnum was a really good first step and brought alot to the game....

Heart shaped chambers, tall intake ports, roller cam... these are things chevy guys pay big bucks for in aftermarket parts and it is all under the hood, waiting to be pressed into service by someone who knows what they can do. If I had some real dough I could put together a motor that would flat freak a hemi out, and here is how I would do it...

.060 over block= 373.5 cubes, ballanced of course for the rpm it will need.

flat tops w/ zero deck and .028 LA gaskets+ 60cc heads = 10.5/1 compression.

edelbrock heads ported to 210cc, with the 2.05 valves.

hughes custom cam and spring set with Ford 1.72 rockers. Hughes has lots of good grinds, pick one for your application.

My six pack manifold. For all intents and purposes it is the equivalent of a three deuce tunnel ram for 1500 to 6500 rpm, and comparable to the power-band of the Hemi.

ford motorsports or equivalent 26/28 pph injectors with a dual feed rail.

msd or similar ignition box, cuz lets face it, coil per on the Hemi is kicking the distributors azz.

long tube headers with true dual cats and pipes to match the pipes the new trucks use.

and of course the programming to make it work, either accel dfi or a mad mod tune like what hemifever does on the sct tuners. With the auto trans I would try the sct tuner first so I dont have to fiddle with a stand alone overdrive and lockup computer. I like to keep it simple

I finally got the setup dropped off to my welder. He has been really busy lately, I am glad he is taking the time to do this for me.

I had an idea to reduce the plenum volume by boring a 3'' hole in the front and back walls, then sliding a length of aluminum conduit through, then welding the seams. It would take up volume, and provide surface area for cooling the plenum kinda like an air gap manifold. I am not going to get it done for the sake of simplicity, but I thought I would still share the idea.

In the mean time, I have a vacation lined up next weekend, a snow goose hunt the weekend after that, then my better half leaves to teach in Ecuador for two months.
I plan on driving her car while she is gone so I can drop this six pack in, providing I can get all the other little things fabbed in time: Air cleaner, linkage, fuel rail crossover.. little things.

Long story short, this thread and build may go quiet for a bit, but rest assured, you will have closure!
