When blazing into battle it’s important to have a healthy roar, not a wheezy whistle. VWerks agreed and ditched the stock 202hp 3.8L for a rip-roaring 5.7L V-8. The 390hp heart transplant came from a Ram donor truck, along with the 5-45RFE automatic transmission. The custom intake offers the Hemi a little more breathing power, while a well placed B&M transmission cooler keeps the auto from bubbling over.
