16 spark plugs ??
 
i just learnt that my mega cab has 16 spark plugs, do most hemi's run 16 spark plugs between 2006-2009
is there an advantage or what does it signify,,
and i heard i need a specialty tool to remove them
thanks

Yep, mine has 16. You'll need a deep deep socket. Call the dealer for the make and model of the tool they use. You might be able to get it from the dealer, an autoparts store, Sears or MATCO tools.

The significance of 16 spark plugs has to to, I believe, with the hemispherical, inherently lean burning, combustion chamber arrangement. Two plugs per cylinder promotes a clean and complete combustion burn cycle.

Sweet ride there sir, very nice :smileup: I have an ST model with all the muscle and no luxury but blue, and was wondering if you ever found a tuner or heard of one for the 09 ram hemi. I'm old school mopar here in Louisiana and I hope you don't mind me adding you to my friends list. I looking forward to sharing experiences, tips, and knowledge with similar trucks, so if it's okay with you, hammer away. Nice talking, cya around and tks :wave:

Spark Plugs
 
Yea 16 plugs but you need a torque wrench to tighten them down to 13 FT/LB, Yes only 13 max is 15 Ft/Lb. Just remember that top fuel dragsters use Hemi's with 16 plugs

so all hemi's regardless of year have 16 plugs?

welcome Radio, and "howdy neighbor"

I'd heard about the 2 plugs per cylinder, but haven't gotten around to investigating....
