From an AIM Convo:
"Oh one more thing how do you see a 390hp V8 beating a supercharged 5.7L hemi? Dont forget with no supercharger we got 345 HP"

This was in regards to a Hemi truck racing an 03/04 Cobra.

Possible QOTD material?

highest average horsepower+ highest torque + highest traction + lowest weight = always wins =p



Anyway, that guy is a dumbass. Only thing that can beat cobras is chebby duramax's =)

My friend bought a hemi truck when it first came out. He was told by the people at the dealership:rolleyes:that with Cold Air, and some tuning he'd be taking out Cobras.

They have to convince themselves that their ill-handling overweight piece of shit is fast after finding out it isn't a real hemi.

I felt bad when I had to tell him he would be the luckiest mother if he hit the dyno and actually put down 270rwhp. :)

From what I have heard is that the new computers will re-calibrate after type of after market CAI....

They have the worst computers any vehicle can have for aftermarket stuff. Main reason why they don't have a lot of SC setups and programmers really dont do shit is because they can't get around the computer.

I have a Hemi, it does have enough power to get out of peoples way, but as far as beating any quick car, it aint happening....

They just need to spend the extra money and buy a DFI setup.

Then they dont have that BS Mopar computer to deal with.

Yeah but all the SC and programmer manufacturers aren't looking to provide something that is only going to work when you buy something totally else. Most people are looking for that one shot answer and package. Most companies haven't figured out that answer.

I dunno. That would be close.

I'd only put money on the truck if it was racing a 78 Cobra. :D
