    I said screw it and went for a blown 331 Hemi in my `39 Plymouth?
    Would I be breaking the "Traditional code of ethics"?

    positive or negitive responses apprecieted...

    I always thought the hood was shaped like that, specifically for a blower on a Hemi!

    bad idea. the money it would cost to put a blown HEMI in your car would be better off spent on my car.

    I take paypal.

    You never have to question putting a hemi in your car just do it, if someone says its wrong, they are wrong.
     
  13. A blown 331 in a 30s Plymouth is traditional, just not common.

    The only way to go wrong is to chicken out and put in a boring small block 350/350 combo.

    I think you should go for it . a blown hemi is very traditional it’s the a&n fittings
    Braded stainless steel hoses and Billet pulleys that destroy the hole thing
    DON’T LOOK INTO THE BILLET LIGHT :eek::eek:

    it would be bad. bad-ASS! i don't think, in the history of hot-rodding, anybody every said, "i love the car, but i really regret putting a blown hemi in it."

    The 331's a great motor. Screw the code of ethics, I'd put a hemi in everything I own if i could!
     
  24. If you have the cubic dollars and the cubic gonads, why not have the cubic inches too?
