Default 2010 Hemi Finally Wakeing Up???

I now have just over 13,000kms on her now which would be roughly 7500 miles and it seems to actually be coming to life!! the last week or so I am noticing what seems to be alot more power out of it. It seems like the beast inside the Hemi is finally being unleashed???? Has anybody else noticed this after there motor finally seems to be broken in?

Well I'm about to hit 10K and although the power seems about the same it does seem to be getting better milage. I was on the highway yesterday and it seemed like steady cruising on level surface at 100km/hr it was down around 10 lit/100kms on the barchart. Maybe I'll see the beast unleashed in another 3K or so.

This is possible along with weather conditions that are more favorable for making horsepower.

Cooler weather makes better HP. But I agree...I noticed my 6.1L made better power after I put a few miles on it when it was new.

Yeah I've got 7500 on my hemi and it feels stronger than it did 3000 miles ago. But it does run the best when the air is cool and dense. I love that hemi. I had a 70 superbee 440 six pack in high school and this truck takes me back to those days.
