I'm no Dodge fan boy, in fact I already have my Camaro on order, but nobody can argue with Hemi engines from the early 70's that were rated 425 hp, but dyno'd over 700 stock.

sorry, but did you just say that stock hemi's made over 700hp? id love to argue that. unless you could show some facts where you got this info.

and obviously, you only think about the old school Hemi, the modern "Hemi" is nothing more than a trademark name. and yes the new hemi combustion chambers are based off of LS technology.

yeah, it's always been easy to distinguish that hollow, pipe's-too-big-for-the-output sound. at least from the mid 90's on

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking this... I'm sure it'll go up again, but It's $2.10 today where I am. Even cheaper at BJ's. I got it for $2.06 a few days ago...

Why would the Motor Trend letters page make anyone here mad? The letters page for all car mags mostly contain negative letters,they're more fun to read. Also,take what was said about the Camaro and flip it and you'll have pretty much every thread about a Mustang on this website.............dish it out but can't take it?
I love the color blue,it's better than red. People who like red just don't know the complexities of what makes the color blue better than red. Red people just aren't really into colors like blue people,i can not like red,it's okay not to like red,but i feel in order to not like red,i must destroy red completely and build up the color blue,because i'm insecure about other people liking blue. People that don't like blue just don't get it.
Insert whatever car you'd like in there,meanwhile the grown car people can have real discussions.

Well Katarhol that is where you are wrong. Not every thread on the site here is bashing a mustang. Many here feel that while the Mustang is a good car it does not and will not compare to the new Camaro. Usally when someone bashes on the Mustang they (a Mustang fan) come here and run off at the mouth about how they have the better car picking the fight and bringing it upon themselves. I have been a lurker on this site for months and joined finally here recently. I dont know everyone here but still will defend them becasue this is our site. The Mustang fans be damned. You are welcome here and your comments are welcome but dont expect a pleasent welcome when you come spouting trash about something we are inthusiast about and care for as much as you do your Mustang.

My first Camaro was a 1967 327 that I paid for myself, while still in high school, back in 1971. I loved that car, but always wished I could own an RS or SS model, preferably, the '69. When I saw the "concept" Camaro back in Jan. of '06, I could not believe my eyes! I wanted it NOW! This is a beautiful retro of our beloved 60's era Camaro. I come to this site daily, just to see the pics of my new baby. I haven't been this excited about anything (material) in ages. I am getting a fully loaded 2LT RS in Imperial blue/gray leather with white hockey stripes. My order was placed, and I am going crazy waiting, but I know it will be worth the wait! I love this car! It is true eye candy for all to enjoy.

Well put, Hesh! Not sure why Punter posted the M.Trend letters to begin with. They're something bound to occur, and yea they get me riled, but no big deal really. Come one, come all trash talkers - to the strip that is.

My theory is that he did it just to deflect attention from the panic du jour.

I will agree with you on one thing. There is no mistaken a Ford's exhaust as the only exhaust that I've heard that sounds worse are those aftermarket exhaust systems that sounds like a pissed off bumblebee.

Wow I was referring to the modern hemi, which as was mentioned above copied the LS series engines intake design. By the way we are talking about 5th gen camaros and modern mustangs why would I be refering to the design of the older Dodge hemi engine. Where are the Dyno runs to prove your astronomical numbers, I've never read or seen anything about that. The performance of the Hemi challengers and chargers didn't add up to that kind of horse power. About all V8 blocks being similar some companies use 60 degree blocks while GM uses 90 degree blocks so those can change as well. Some companies use 2 bolt mains, while GM uses 4 and 6 bolt mains.

ford has an awesome distinctive exhaust on the 3v. if you want a more pronounced sound all you need is an axel back; off road pipes are too pronounced imo, but you get good power
