PostSubject: Thinking about a new Gen Hemi in my Plymouth    Sat Jul 30, 2016 7:32 am

I've been toying with the idea of putting a new gen Hemi (6.4 or 6.2 FI Hellcat ) in my car. The current 493 is a great engine, but I really like the idea of getting in the car and driving it where ever I want and not having to worry about breaking down, over heating, loading up in traffic, etc!

Can anyone recommend a custom shop with experience in Hemi transplants in older cars? All the places I found only work on or have swap kits for 60's and up Mopars.

Sounds like a great idea John...Anything that makes it more drive-able has to be the right way to go. You and I should talk. I am thinking about going back "closer to stock" with a 361 BB and am in process to find a shop to do the work. It's all about talking to the right people that can lead you down the right path. As far as helping you with your new gen Hemi...the only other time I've seen this done is with that 58 Fury down in Alabama that was on e-Bay a short while ago. We had it posted here in the on-line finds section. Maybe you could call that guy and pick his brain?

That's a great idea.

I wish I could do this in my country, but its stupidly illegal, or you must do an engineering project, let the car be tested by an specialized company, paying, paying, and more paying, and waste lots of time... No one does this here even it would be great, mostly in european classic cars that use to have tiny engines..

About you and your car, i've seen online many people modifying this cars and the results seem to be great, hope if you can finally do it and decide to, post photos and explanations of it, sounds like a great project!!

thanks for the links. Guess it's time to buckle down and do a little more research. I'll call you next week Bob.

Sounds like quite an endeavor John. Like you said the homework is essential here. Gotta pick someone who really knows what their doing. Someone with a history of success is a must. Good luck and keep us posted on this! Smile

well i plan on using the dodge viper engine, the biggest issue i seen was using the factory engine wiring harness so there is no issues. the newer hemi engines have a stand alone harness so it is much easier to use.

That would be really neat, a Hellcat powering one of these. Very Happy Question about the current motor in your car, what is a 493 exactly, the largest older Mopar big block I know of is a 440. Possibly stroked/overbored 440? scratch Anyway, I'd be happy with the current motor but I can understand where you're coming from with the advantages of the newer motors. Especially if you do go with the Hellcat one, I heard that its great. 707 hp, stock! Very Happy

The 493 is a bored and stroked 440 from Blueprint Engines. Great engine with lots of power, but with this build the goal is reliability. I would really like to be able to cruise this car from New York State to California if needed without having to worry about it breaking down with no parts availbility
