A 4.7 can beat a modded 5.7. But mod for mod CI almost always wins

Re: whats faster 4.7 or 5.7

looks like we have a debate of sorts... is the 4.7 a higher output motor and the 5.7 more torque-ish??

Re: whats faster 4.7 or 5.7

Man anything can be made to outdo something that is normally better in whatever aspect. As much as I applaud you for posting something to talk about, it is a no brainer. This thread is almost as moot as asking what is better; a 5.7 or 6.1?

Re: whats faster 4.7 or 5.7

this isn't a horrible question, i mean the 2002 jeep cherokee overland did 0-60 in 6.7 seconds in motorweeks test drive and the hemi jeeps are 6.8-7 seconds. With more cubic inches id expect a bit more top end from the 5.7 but you gotta keep in mind the hemi jeeps weigh 500 pounds more than the wj 4.7.
But if they are both wk jeeps then ya 5.7 FTW
