Step in...lets discuss the 426 and 440 Hemi's!!!
 
ok....not doing this for the current truck...but I am seriously looking at buying the 2011/2012 WK2 with the 5.7 hemi. But I want a total sleeper beast with this one. Lets discuss the 426 and 440 hemi upgrades. Best, shops, mods etc etc!!!!

Well, I won't pretend like I know a lot about engines/performance, etc... but I think it would be good discuss what supporting mods would be necessary or recommended to go along with such an upgrade.

It'll be nice to know what transmission will be in the WKII, rear end, suspension, etc.

Just tossing out some ideas... not really going to be able to participate, lol.

the 5.7 WK2 will use the same drivetrain...pretty much. But that is a good point.
If there is a 2012 SRT....it looks to have the 392 hemi 6.4l)

I cant wait for BJB and some of the others to chime in. I'm just now starting my research

Are you looking at maxing out the HEMI or replacing it with a monster?

Looks like a crate motor upgrade is in his cross hairs.

Well he could easily get to the 426 with a 392 starting point. The obvious big things are bore and stroke. Who knows what heads and Cams will be available by then. Then you would need the typical performance stuff. Intake, headers, exhaust, and a way to tune.

I thought the 5.7's were 345 cubic inches and the 6.1's were 392...?

He's talking of purchasing the WKII 5.7 and dropping in a new motor.

Yeah, the 426.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about swapping in a crate motor. At this point though, I'm starting to get confused. Are you purposely fawcking with me Richie? :p :p

Re: Step in...lets discuss the 426 and 440 Hemi's!!!
 
yeah....I may have confused you guys. I will go the crate route with all supporting mods. Not sure if I will start with an SRT or 5.7 hemi.

Before we get ahead of ourselves... I think it would be wise to jot down your goals. Track beast... fast, but daily drivable, etc. Maybe that will help others get a better idea of what to suggest.
