Arrow Hemi

Posted a thread recently about Aev's hemi conversion kit. Talked to the guys at teraflex about their conversion. I'm sure this is old news to most of you but teraflex offers a 5.7 vvt for 22.5k and a 6.4 vvt for 32k. Complete motor and trans swap. installation n everything included. Very pricy but if you have the money and want it all done in one shot this is a way. Would love to hear opinions or from people with experience with the teraflex conversion.

Don't know if anyone here has had that one done but 20k is the price range that's always mentioned for hemi conversions.

So that sounds close. I wish they would provide a wider range of numbers for this though. I don't care what it pulls at 4200 rpm, what does it pull at 2k?

Tryin to get some more specs. I really think the price jump from 22.5 to 32k for the 5.7 to 6.4 is a little outlandish and not worth it. the 6.4 does however put out 500 hp and 470 tq at 4200 rpm which is pretty substantial.

I asked for the 2000 rpm numbers and they "currently don't have that information"

Even if I had the money I would not spend it on a Hemi. I could see myself spending a couple thousand on a used supercharger as people people sell their older JK's for the new ones with the 3.6. I have no problem waiting for cheaper hand me downs.

Its in California and the other side of the country for some of you, but I have dealt personally with Todd and his workmanship is top notch.

Well thanks for saving me a phone call at least. Disappointing though considering the vehicle this is marketed towards. You'd think they'd know a lot of people are gonna ask that.
