No problem. I wonder if you could swap the heads/cams/ecm/intake/exhaust? That would be a weekend job and would net a large power increase if it's all plug and play/able to bolt up. I would guess the block itself was unchanged so I bet it'd work. You'd have to make sure the wiring/sensors are compatible though....and I don't know how much all that would cost, probably not really worth it. If you were really serious about increasing hp with keeping that engine your best bet would be a affordable supercharger or turbocharger with low boost (don't run high boost on these engines, the top ring land is somewhat fragile I believe to help with emissions). If you were going to swap engines or do anything else serious you'd probably want to just go with the new 390hp hemi or even a bigger/badder engine. All depends on what you want out of it and what you are willing to put in. That guy on airram was able to run 14's in the 1/4 with his quad cab 4.7L, that's not too bad especially considering his hp numbers weren't even that crazy.
