I'm sure you guys have probably seen these, but these crate engines are awesome. For grins I looked up GM crate engines - yeah they have more small block V8's you can order, but a Mopar Big Block runs CIRCLES around a GM one.

stupid hemi. Before the hemi crate came out a 380 horse 360 small block was about 3400, now they're a grand or so more. Can't have a much cheaper engine making more power than the hemi, so obviously jack the price on the 360 up.
horatio, am I misunderstanding you, or are you just negative all the time.... forgive me if I misunderstand your reply here.... but ...
I know I cant afford one anyway, and if I could, I would buy one just because I like the engine, and its design.....
straiten me out here, say "something" positive just one time, make me smile just once before this old soldier dies.... LOL.....

Nah, I'm not bitter all the time, just in probably most of the threads that both of us bother to read.
But this is a bit of a touchy subject, since at one point in time I had seriously been considering putting a 360 magnum crate into my ram, but cranking the price up 33% without warning just put itt out of my price range - it's now cheaper to do it the hard way and get a block, clean it up, and build it fresh myself. Compound that with the fact that I'm plain old getting tired of things not working properly on the truck anyway and I'm thinking about just dumping it. I've owned the Ram longer than any othe vehicle I've owned so it's part of the family, but I can't justify having 2 trucks, especially if 1 is always needing work.
