4.7l v8, 45rfe : Underpowered, overpriced.
This was my original idea, but underpowered but not to bad a price.
6.1 hemi (ouch!) waaaayy overpriced for what you get. You can get the same power from an 6.0 chevy with an LS6 cam and intake for half the cost.
So true, decided it was WAY to much money
or a v8 with 2 extra cylinders and a 48re: Heavy, crappy gearing in trans, ~ same HP than a 5.3. You don't need torque, you need HP. My 4 cyl make enough torque, its HP we all need for wheelspeed. (I own one of these funny V8 +2s with a shitty 48RE..)
Even if it is made from aluminum? Was wondering about the trans. A 5.3 puts out 505hp?
