I was wondering the same thing.
Only 2100 miles on mine but the 5.7 with 8 speed transmission is a great pair. Absoluteley no issues

Yep. Very happy with the 5.7 for 11 years with my 04 (recently sold). All else would prob rattle away but the engine would still be chugging along.

Other than:

1: Alternator bearing going out,
2: Tranny solenoid pack went bad
3: Lifter tick when cold
4: 30 of the 390 HP was left at the factory.

Yea, I'm good.

Last time I had a 5.7 Hemi it was in a Ram and was somewhere around 345HP. Now it is 395hp and you bet your ass I am happy, this engine is awesome!

Happy with my 11 it can make my crew cab move pretty decent plus i dont have dual tips lol so most people think its a wannabe hemi truck lol may delete the badge and claim its a 4.7 lol

Cons
1. She will drink gas if i hit the i wanna go fast pedal, but it doesnt out weigh the rush of acceleration
2. Need traction control (i have one tire) instead of 2 and the factory tcs makes 390hp go to 140hp lol
3. At least another gear or the 8speed trans so i can run 3.73s and get same mpg as i do now its kinda of a dog until 2500 comes alive at 4k through redline from a stop
4. Top speed of 105mph tuner will fix that and add more smiles
5 sinple stuff body/interior but aftermarket and factory parts will help that

Aside from my cons i love this thing wouldn't go back to anything but a hemi
