Re: 09 limited hemi 5.7L vs 08 laredo 4.7L

It takes quite a bit to get the standad 4.7 to keep up with a stock 5.7, 4.7HO has a better chance, but it still come up short if the HEMI starts modding.

From the people I have talked too there isn't much difference between the newer 08 4.7 compared to the HO.

But i didn't see he mentioned that he was talking about the 08, my bad. I guess i should read things a little better.

Re: 09 limited hemi 5.7L vs 08 laredo 4.7L

mpg is about the same, so just get the Hemi. Probably cheaper too after you've spent all the extra money and labor on cams, tuner, etc. for the 4.7 just to keep up.
