Re: Interesting: Why Gen 3 Hemi's eat cams..

Anyone see the vid where some poor guy had him build a cheapy 318 sent it to Nicks garage for a dyno?
Engine lasted but a few minutes sounded horrible from first start up lost oil pressure.

Re: Interesting: Why Gen 3 Hemi's eat cams..

When I bought my '09 Ram with a 6 banger I almost sprung for the Hemi but I would've had to finance the $2-3K extra so I decided against it, maybe I got lucky by not getting it?? the 3.7 6 banger sure does suck fuel and has Briggs & Stratton power LOL, in '10 they came out with the Pentastar I think it's called with about 300 hp. not bad for a 6 cyl., mines about 100 h.p. I have to admit the only thing I've replaced in the 52,xxx miles is the WP after 24K it does need plugs and that looks like a major PITA

Re: Interesting: Why Gen 3 Hemi's eat cams..

Dad has been buying used (2011-15 range so far) Dodge trucks on Government auctions. He has bought 4 of them in the last 6 months... 3 of them needed cams. One of the 3 he put a complete engine in because a cam bearing spun.

Std. pump is more than than enough oil for a BBC engine. put both in and spin the engine over with a priming drill and let me know what you find on how much more it takes to spin that HV pump over.

The engine block design is different than anything GM does to my knowledge. Cam position, oil feed path, etc.
