There's a raging debate going on over at AutoWeek's Combustion Chamber forum, and the Hemi seems to be losing. One poster posited that the Hemi may be the most important engine of the 21st century, and the rest of the crew jumped all over the poor guy. While we love the Hemi, it's true that it's basically just a revamped LA motor with polyspherical heads, essentially making it the shining pinnacle of late '50s/early '60s Plymouth/Dodge technology. And will people quit buying into DCX's marketing hype and stop typing the name in all caps? Thanks.
