I don't know if everyone is aware of this or not. But most foreign engines are Hemi's. They are not allowed to advertise the Hemi name due to patents. Look at a VW, BMW, Mazda, Mercedes and other car manufacterers engines. Mostly all have hemispherical heads. 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.
