It’s estimated that the 6.1L Hemi V-8 kicks out a whopping 500 horsepower and 490 lb-ft of torque. The Hemi has been fitted with a number of Arrington Performance go-fast products, including Phase 4 CNC-ported heads, chromoly pushrods, and X-Series XB- Orange Aggressive Camshaft. Following the engine mods, the engine was tuned by the team at Burnsville Off Road to optimize the engine’s output. It was also Burnsville’s hemi conversion kit that was used to install the engine. Other underhood mods include an Optima YellowTop battery, K&N air filter, and custom stainless steel exhaust with Magnaflow muffler. Cooling is handled via a custom aluminum radiator with stock electric fan. The Hemi is mated to a 545RFE four-speed transmission. Power is routed to the axles via a Rubicon Rock-Trac NV241 4:1 transfer case and a pair of J.E. Reel Driveline driveshafts with 1350 U-joints.
