Default Can anyone explain to me why...

Mopar engines seem so much stronger than GM engines?

My neighbor is a die hard GM guy, and, we are die hard Mopar guys.

So...the usual bickering happens...you know...all in good fun, though

But, he has an 86 Camaro with a 383 stroker motor in, TPI...built up...big cam...computer chip...everything.

That thing hangs with my 98 Ram with a 5.9L and 150,000 miles. Passes me a little...but nothing spectacular. A 383 stroker small block Chevy, and thats all it can do. Kinda sad.

Also, my other neighbor has a 67 Chevelle with a built up small block, stroked to a 400...that thing will barely spin the tires.

And, a friend of mine has an 86 Iroc-Z with 40,000 miles on it...305 TPI, dual exhaust, CAI...etc. My Conquest TSI, with a 4 cylinder on stock boost hung right with that thing as long as I didn't spin the tires on launch...and that Conquest wasn't fast.

I swear...not to bash GM just because, but, for these being built up motors, and my stuff being mostly stock besides exhaust and a CAI (the Conquest is bone stock...only has a 3" turbo back exhaust)...its quite embarassing.

Not to mention my step-dads Chevy Silverado. That thing is a pig...and it has the 5.3L Vortech motor with 2xx horsepower, 3xx lb/ft tq.

I don't know...weird. Don't have too much experience with Ford...but, I hear their F150s are dogs...never driven/ridden/raced one before though.

But...Mopar sure does seem to have one thing right. And that is making some strong running engines.
