    Rumours

    I’m reading about the potential return of the legendary 426 Hemi, supposedly in the next refresh of the Challenger platform.
    What’s interesting is that this will be an Aluminium block with forged internals and a naturally aspirated horsepower rating in between the Hellcat (707) and the Demon (840), both of which are supercharged.
    True? I guess until it’s officially announced who knows? But as a rumour it’s worth sharing, especially as everyone else moves to smaller displacement V6’s with hairdryers or worse electric for there performance offering. Thank goodness that American car manufacturers still have the testes to deliver what’s wanted, even by a shrinking niche market.

    Yeah that power should be possible with the advances of engines over the years. Mine may make 540hp as a 383ci so a 426ci certainly has the potential. I do like N/A. Nice lumpy cam which you can't really do on forced induction.
    Glad the Americans plan to make what the market needs.

    Unfortunately it’s unlikely a high lift long duration cam shaft will pass emissions. Fairly sure yours wouldn’t?!!
    So how they make that sort of power without that old school method is quite impressive.

    Yeah could be tough if it has to pass emissions too. More cubes needed, 572ci sounds like a good number.

    I wonder if they can implement variable valve timing, good on envisions, good on power when required.

    The current 5.7 & 6.4 Hemi’s with auto gearboxes already have cylinder shutdown technology that is controlled by hydraulic valve train so it’s not that big of a step.

    Why thank you Dan. Your extravagant gift is unexpected but very welcome. I’ll look forward to receiving it!
