^ In all honesty the 4.7L does not get much better mpg than the hemi with mds, it's very slightly better but not by much. I assume that's one of the reasons they are phasing out the 4.7L in the upcoming years and it won't be offered anymore. It is still a great engine though. Sucks that you are in cali and have all those issues. Here in FL you could run open manifolds and no one would look twice lol My goal is to get to 300 rwhp with my 4.7L qc, which is about rc hemi area, and I would like to run the same times. I have a feeling I'm going to fall just short of them, as I'm only doing fairly mild bolt ons, but either way it's not an all out vehicle for me, more of a fun daily driver to sink a couple bucks into
