Funny part is...the Hemi.. it'* a 5.7
The 6.0L L76 that'* going in the G8 has real potential, too. The 6-speed it'* being matched up to can handle up to 600 ft-lb of torque. Slap a M110 on that puppy and move the 391ft-lb stock torque on up close to/in to the 500 range.
And the G8 is a 4-door to boot. Now that'* a grocery getter.
Hmmm.... I'm thinking L67/L76 swap into the '00 chassis....
Nah, probably would be much more work than it'* worth. Would have to match it up to a STS-V tranny, if that'* FWD.
Anyhoo, the L67, like Don said, will always have it'* spot in my heart, too.
