Wonder what that might be,,,, a 7 liter hemi ?
Still has spark plugs in the center of the chamber and the valve configuration is the same (intake on top, exhaust at the bottom, not side by side). So, the most important parts of the design are the same.712edf said:I'm guessing only the displacement is shared with the original?
Not sure what you mean, as I explained it in my post.....A typical V8 has the valves inline (so to speak), parallel with the crank. A hemi valve configuration is perpendicular to the crank which provides a much smoother path in and out of the combustion chamber. The intake valve is right near the intake port, the exhaust valves are right by the exhaust port.dodge82273 said:where else would ya put the intake / exhaust ? hey a marine version with exhaust facing up outta the valley ! so a high reving modern cast /machined version , with everything ya need to bolt it into anything custom .
Because of the above, and the spark plug placement, the most important attributes to a hemi are still there, not just the displacement.Yes the only thing the same is the cubic inches , or at least the declared inches .
