It is the Detroit technology that makes the V-8 Hemi awesome sounding with great HP and Torque ratings, the European engines have their own sound (not attention grabbing like the Mopar), with lower HP and Torque ratings. The big $$$$ European engines have nice HP and Torque ratings, but not the average car. Conquest, with its 2.6L I4, is a hemi.
If you bought an older Dodge (198x Dodge Challenger), that came with the had a badge on the fender that said 2.6 Hemi.

The funny thing is, the G54B is completley designed by Mitsubishi. Hell...even the Chrysler 2.2s were hemis.

The Hemi is a name. Even the new hemis in the Dodges are just as Hemi as anything else. But...nothing will ever be as much of a hemi as the old 426...because, well, thats the one that made the name.
They can call the new hemis, hemis all they want...but, they're not the same

Also...I see FIAT written all over this.
