I've always respected Hemis, but I grew up a GM person. The tiny size of the latest Camaro sent me looking for options. I rented a Challenger for a few days on a trip, and bought my own the day after I got back home. The 5.7 Might not be up to 392, Hellcat or Demon status, but its got the torque to push you into the seat and the rumble to make me smile. Coming from a different frame of reference, I've got a lot to learn. I have a hellcat lower air box with the headlight tube ordered. But that's it so far. Beyond that, I don't know what these engines like or what parts are cross compatible, etc. So, I'll be reading a lot of the threads and possibly asking a ton of questions. Lets start off with a basic question any newbie would ask. Lets say you have $1,000 in hand. What would you recommend?
