The new dodge "hemi" motor is the second most overrated engine in the world, IMHO second place to the vtak.

That thing has been around for 3 years now. I saw it at the auto show this year having no idea what it was, then I saw what seemed to be exhaust headers in the front and rear then realized OMFG 2 V8s...

Other than that I'm not a fan, just figured that should go in this thread.

the most overrated motors are the LSx motors, sr20's, and rb's

I personally like the new hemi but not as it currently stands. My friend is a mechanic for dodge (viper certified) and he informed (and showed) me that they essentially "choke" the motors OEM. His ram 1500 w/ the hemi was opened up (modified A/F, rev, exhaust) and that thing moves.

I agree with SR/RB overrated.. I don't agree with LSx. Don't hate because its a pushrod engine on 70 year old technology still whuppin ***.

That looked/sounded like that noise was coming from that old muscle car that pulls up to the line at the end of the race. Sounded like it was him just doing his burnout while staging.

I've driven one of those before, and for a SUV damn does it throw you back in your seat!
