yah 454 is GM
Hemi is Chyrsler

unless it's bored out then they can't be the same engine... but I might get owned for saying this...

Nah, some dude that talks all kinds of B/S at school said he is getting a '90's transam and dropping a "454 Hemi" in it. He was talkin about it all day, and I was like thought it was 426, but he just kept talkin about this 454 hemi. He lies bout everything tho.

do a bit of research, then pwn him in front of a large group of people. really humiliate him. or just kick his *** for being such a douchebag, and giving f-body owners a bad name.

He could be reffering to Hemi as using heads with a hemispherical combustion chamber. That is what Hemi is actually in reference to is the shape of the combustion chamber, it has the spark plug in the center.

Here is a link to all the info you want about ALL mopar hemi engines.

http://www.allpar.com/mopar.html

only problem is being that "hemi" is just a phrase ocined by mopar due to the hemispeircal shape of the combustion chamber. Therefore a 454 "might" be a hemi I don't know since i know nothing about chevy powerplants.

Also though no ONE that knows anything would refer to it as a "hemi" since it is obviously a mopar thing to do :)

there is no such thing as a 454 hemi; gm has never used a hemispherical head. maybe one out there if some rich guy had a custom block made.

but there is no way your friend would ever get one.

Yep, no 454 hemi. chevy doesnt have a hemi head. Not many cars actually have them heads. DOHC ford motor is a hemi with spark plugs down in the heads, but other than that, GM is in love with their 350 OHV engines.

actually your all wrong-
The kid is FOS but
There was a bunch of BigBlockChevy experimental engines with
Hemispherical heads but they never went into production.

GM did put into production a motor with hemispherical heads...the Quad 4 found in some Olds cars and possible in some Pontiacs

Why would need a custom block to make "hemi motor"?

Production dont mean **** ...all after market
:)

There are heads that use the Hemi technology, for chevys ...where have all ya'll been?For both BBC and SBCs,and ford on the older mustangs motor (Older as in late 60's and use in trans am motors)use hemi tech on there motors(dont know what motor cuz I am not a ford guy)

Not my quad 4, the spark plugs are at ~30 degree banks.

actually i beleive ford was the first to use a hemi head. then later sold the name "hemi" to chrysler who then made it famous. but i may be wrong.....

you are.......they both were working on hemi type heads around the same time but both ignorant of the others work. the original hemi motors were used in airplanes during WWII in the P47 Thunderbolt. It was a V-16 design and produced a rated 2500 hp. It was a breakthrough because a piston driven engine broke 500mph. They later put out the first automotive hemi under the name Fire Power V-8 and displaced 331 c.i.. It was a 2-barrel and made 180 horse at 310 ft/lbs torque. Desoto was the second company to release a hemi, it was a whopping 276 c.i.d. the 426 never hit the street until 66 but they were available as a race motor only in 64.

I got a bunch of pics somewhere. it's in an '83 elcamino. all autometer gauges in custom made panel....custom fab9 rear end made by chassisworks...turbo400 tranny w/ transbrake and 4000 stall. I'll have to look through my hard drive at home to find them....on work pc here.

Here's a hint ...

If someone says it at school, then it's probably not true ...

For future reference ...
I don't believe a word he says anyhow. He comes to school in his POS truck (which he spraypainted flat-black) and we are talking about how gas prices jumped and stuff, this is his reply to the conversation.
"Yep... Iam sure glad I took out my 405 last night and put a 307 in it."

Just like he swapped engines over night after claiming to work 40 hours a week while in school :confused:

Lol, he also told me he drove a Save-A-Lot semi to Alaska and killed 7 big black bears and brought them back over the weekend. :laugh:

BUT, with experience and knowledge, a swap could be a one nighter...

Older Chevy truck engine swap= 5 hrs. max including a beer run or 2. It really isn't that hard to do. But the bear and semi driving part, that will raise the Bullshit flag quick like.

I cna have the 350 outta any old truck in less then 30 min it reall iis a peice of cake with the right tools and cherry picker. Hell you can pull it strip it and put it back together and have it in and running in a weekend. its the block work that makes rebuilding take so long.

302 windsor, 427 cleaveland, and 8 cylinder v6's would it?

You can theoretically make any engine a "hemi".... but why? Hemi's ****. The lack of a squish pad doesnt allow cooling, and thus burns hotter than traditional style valves..thus needing less timing, but more octane to attain the same power as tradional heads would.. A hemi head, theoretically, should never out-perform an identical setup on the same gas, due to the lack of cooling. However...for nitro and alcohol cars...hemi heads are the most desireable, because you need to get that mixture to burn, and you can add all the timing you need.

A squish pad (the part of the head that has no dish) is designed to have the mixture forced onto it, and acts as a kind of cooling "area" or whatever you'd like to call it. The old hemi's had 2 plugs per cylineder, and forced the mixtures towards each other in the center, thus burning very quickly (similar to vortech's quickburn heads) but also burned very hot, and required higher octane to achieve the same power(on gasoline).

Basically, hemi's aren't really all that great... they were different...and never made the claimed power... and so I guess that makes them good?...no

Just say what I just said to him in front of a crowd, and when he goes to say "well Ill just put racegas in it" you say "Regardless of race gas or not, a tradional OHV head will perform better".

Now, of course, this is all subject to an incredible amount of variables, but for the lack of caring, and his ignorance, he won't know any better.

Not saying it is impossible to swap engines overnight, but like I said, he says he works til like midnight every night as soon as he leaves school.

He popped his hood about 3 weeks ago, and everything is stock. He has like 30yrs of grime and **** all over everything.
