Different cams, heads (port design and chamber design I believe), changed to 2 plugs per cylinder, different intake and exhaust manifolds, different (larger) TB.

they are dimensionally identical in nearly every way, but most parts don't interchange...kind of weird/neat.

For example, the intake I used was for a 2007 and older 4.7L, says it won't fit the 2008 + but it fit on my truck. Also the 180 tstat I put in this weekend was listed for 2007 and older 4.7L, says it won't fit the 2008 + but it worked fine in my truck...

The new 4.7L is pretty much an OHC version of the last hemi...even the combustion chambers are nearly hemispherical just like the last hemi, it's just where the valve actuation comes from that is different.

Sounds like you have a nice setup there DARK KNIGHT. think ive watched a couple of your youtube vids? hows the super-damper 25% underdrive was it worth the install? and the stall converter 2800 right? would u recomend higher stall now that u have it done or is it just right? also how do u plan on spraying would we have to do anything to the internals or what shot are you going to run? sry bout all the questions if im right i been following your vids for a while and wanting to ask seems we been doing close the same mods, and hopefully one day we can meet on the track!! as is wed be a good race right now i think lol

My stall is a 3000 stall torque converter from Edge Racing. I LOVE IT. I would recommend a 3200 stall for anyone wanting to do a 3000. I'm going to run a 100 shot. I changed my plugs to a heat range colder than stock. And also received a nitrous tune from Sean Powell at HEMIFEVER. The damper I'm not sure how much of a difference it made. Nver got to compare.
