Discussion in 'Forced Induction Mopar' started by doogievlg, Jul 31, 2018.
Does anyone know whose car this is and any details about the motor?
Missed the Hemi part in the title. Mods can you move this to forced induction or the appropriate section?
Bigger engine than what the quarters say and a supercharger is my guess. Oops missed the Hemi part.
First off. It says it's a HEMI. So it's not a small block.
Twin Turbo. Did you miss that part?
Its Josh King. He is the promoter for Monster Mopar. That car will make a bunch more than a 1000 Will run 7’s once sorted out. He made some easy mid 5 1/8 mile hits at Monster Mopar this past weekend. BES built twin turbo deal
Sounds about right. I know he has played with it at 15 pounds of boost and the thing is crazy. Pictures dont do the car justice. Paint looks a foot thick on it
So what motor is it?
Gen 3 with i believe Thitek heads
Did you bother to read my second comment I made immediately after posting the thread?
Not a member?
I am really getting more and more interested in these gen 3 builds. Seems like it could be some decent compition for the LS and Coyote guys.
Done. I missed the Hemi part too. Whoever titled the video should have left the 340 out of the title. LOL
Dont think so. Long thread on Moparts about the build in the Gen 3 section, and he owns the Fast Mopars.com site
That Green Duster on the chassis dyno is NOT Josh King's car, it's Rick Trunkett , one of the owners of Big 3 racing down in OHIO. I hear he's building a better motor right now.
Yep..... just actually “ looked” at the car.... lol Josh’s car just made 1200 at the tire on a pull. There is a link to it in the thread on Moparts in the gen3 tech section
The Gen3 Hemi factory blocks can handle more torque and horsepower before failing than production small blocks, and the heads flow a lot of air. Plenty of guys making them fit A bodies, so no real reason not to run one, except I mostly have street junk and it's been way cheaper to build Magnum engines. The 5.7 versions of the Hemi have really come down in price though, and are easier to find as cores in junk yards now.
This may be the other one you guys mentioned. Saw it last weekend at Norwalk. May have drooled on it a little. ￼
From what I have been reading on the 5.7 the head seems to be the week part when you start throwing boost at it. Seems like most guys are switching heads.
That is exactly what I dream of owning.
