    Not I.

    I heard them Corvette engines were good.

    8.1L? Is that bigger than the Hemi I know was buried years ago? (Whatever the biggest Mopar Hemi is.

    I can personally vouch that the 396 is a mighty fine engine.

    What do you have the 396? I heard the 496 gets a little better gas mileage then my 454 .. it's a 1992 with 230,000 miles on it

    Err, no. I was referring to 527 CI engines. Where does 8.1L align in the realm of 527 CI Hemis?

    Real Mopar Hemis, not no recent bullshit.
