    I'm always amazed at the creativity and skill of some hot rodders out there....


    I believe it's a sectioned 5.7 Hemi head. Whoa... A gent from Pensacola put it together. Needless to say... this was my "WTF" moment for the day...

    That is crazy. The 5.7 is a dual plug motor (as seen in the pics) I wonder if the other plug is non-firing? or maybe he has some crazy Y plug wires.

    That is a some great machine work for sure.

    WTF moment indeed!
    I'd LOVE to hear a sound clip of that!
  8. That is cool, I guess he just plugged the hole for the second plug. How did he fit the early hemi valve cover on there? I guess just redrilled the gasket surface to make it line up?

    We need more answers!
  9. intake rockers look interesting . . .

    My WTF is the detail photo of the cumbustion chamber shows daul plugs but the picture with the valve cover off shows a single plug in the in car photo.

    He did it right.... kept the oiling lined up as well as the geometry. Just changed pushrod location. Pretty damn cool!

    I bet those headers are test run pieces. Why spend hours on them when the whole engine could be a failure?

    The Aussie L6 Hemi is not a true Hemi but a Wedge design. Chrysler Australia added the Hemi badge in an effort to sell cars. Nonetheless the Hemi Charger was at one time the quickest Aussie production car, beating 351C Fords and Chevy powered Monaros. All from 265ci.

    A Hemi head on a slant 6 has been doing the rounds on dicussion forums for years. I guess someone pulled their finger out of their ass & just did it.

    When will they go into he going to sell them?
  21. Sharp eyes!

    so you pull the valve cover to change plugs, wonder how the wires like being bathed in hot oil . . .

    The plugs are interesting. He chose to use the one under the rocker arm, and build a cover and what has to be a 90 degree wire end, instead of using the other plug under the rocker shaft with what looks like easier access.
    Lots of head scratching and cut and fit went into that thing. Would love to see and hear more on this one!!!

    Any more on the source of these photos and what the guy actually had to say. I know a while back this was proposed in a discussion on another forum but it was just a mock up and the guy hadn't gotten very far. I think there was some question of how to get the inner two cylinders lined up where the head is joined, I can't remember the specific issue but I thought it had something to do with some offset.

    This would be awesome if it could be worked out because there is nothing going in the way of aftermarket heads for slant sixes even though there are tons of these engines out there.

  26. Like wow. Just as I was considering cutting up an old valve cover I have for the "Chrysler Firepower" logo for a slant six valve cover, this guy comes up with this!
    Thanks for the heads up- now to to see what's going on.;)

    Wow. We've been talking about doing a billet (so sue me) cross flow head for a /6 around our shop for some time. This is an interesting approach.
    My idea has the exhaust and intake on oposite sides of this conversion.

    Need to consider some things when pushing the exhaust out the passenger side of a slant six. Room is tough to come by over there when its already tight with lean on the engine then you have the distributor and fuel pump to work around. I would think the distributor would be the biggest issue.
