Re: 05 5.7 Swap in 73 charger (power steering questions)

If anyone is interested, there's a feature on steering pumps in the January 2009 issue if Car Craft Magazine.

The article's based around the steering box's used by GM, such as Saginaw, but the information included there-in is good, along with the contacts.

Re: 331 "W" Block limits

I was just wondering, in keeping with the replacement block theory, do you think the "W" could stand for "Warranty" ? Although, having suggested that, I can't see why there would be a separate block for warranty purposes ? Surely the block would be pulled from the production lines ? It would make mo...

This is taken straight from their e-mail reply: " When doing that swap use a GM pump which is 950PSI. Hemi pumps put out 1350PSI which is to much PSI. The 5.7 Hemi p...

If you're not bothered too much about cost, or don't already have a set of the cast iron (CI) heads, go with a fully ported set of Hot Heads aluminum Hemi heads - not cheap, but worth the extra cost in terms of port flow, and you can raise the static compression ratio over the "CI" heads.
