I've noticed that the main difference between this engine and my old Hemi seems to be off the line power. I'm no stoplight racer but I find it odd that even with 3.92 gears I can't chirp the tires from a stop. It's that normal or am I in need of some tune up items? It seems to wake up after around 3k rpm but from a dig it seems to be a little lethargic. What gives?
