Gas mileage is not a problem for me (don't drive much). Price difference is not that much.

HEMI tick is the only thing that concerns me. I test-drove V6 and HEMI on WK2 and didn't really notice it but drive was not really long.

Do "they all do this"?
Had an SRT 8 Charger.... and an R/T. The tick was present in both engines.... wasn't a big deal. At the time, I knew the explanation, but time has erased that explanation from my memory, along with the memory of where I put my glasses. Damn, where ARE my glasses?

Re: HEMI tick poll

Mine has been reduced since I disabled the MDS with the Trinity...anyone else notice this? Also, I only have it on start-ups (and rarely now with MDS off)...it goes away after 3 mins of driving. I had an AIRAID before the 4" bwoody and neither alone made it better/worse (I actually heard it more with the stock intake, and it lasted longer)


OOPS - Mod please change my answer...I DO have a tick...I answered that I don't (well I did, but now it is gone 95% of the time with MDS off)...change my response if necessary

Re: HEMI tick poll

a v6 over the hemi? do yourself a favor and get the hemi. the tick isnt a big deal. ive heard it, mine doesnt do it but if i had to choose between a v6 or the hemi with a tick, id take the hemi all day........you'll regret the day you bought a v6 if you believe the hype on the "tick"......

Joe, from reading your posts i can tell we are a lot alike. get the hemi my friend, trust me, you will be glad you did. the v6 was made for women....the hemi for manly men.

Re: HEMI tick poll

I only hear it when I'm sitting at the drive thru. Rest of the time the exhaust and intake drowns it out.
