Seven of the eight finalists for our Hemi dyno challenge delivered their engines in time for the contest at Competition Cams in Memphis, Tennessee. If you think these engines look powerful on the dyno stands, you should see and hear them on the videos of the competition.
While the final scores are not tallied yet, all of the entries in the Hemi engine challenge have been dyno'd, and the power numbers are in. We have to say, we were impressed by each of the builders and the engines they brought to the challenge. We also want to thank all our sponsors and competitors for pitching in to make this year's engine challenge fun and exciting.
To ensure fairness, the order the engines were run was drawn at random. The following is the list of competitors in the order they ran, with the horsepower and torque numbers they made on their best pull. Remember, we're also factoring the cost of the engine and the manifold vacuum it produced, so the builder who made the most power is not necessarily the one who will win the contest.
Stay tuned for the final results of the challenge and be sure to pick up the next several issues of Mopar Muscle magazine for details about the challenge, the builders, and an in-depth look inside these potent Hemi engines.
