We built this car by repurposing a 5.7 HEMI drive train from a 2004 Dodge Ram HEMI 1500 2 wheel drive truck. We used all of the factory harnesses, computers, fuel pump, etc. to bring its reliability and driveability into this century.
We also upgraded the suspension and stiffened the unit body. Four wheel Wilwood four-piston caliper disc brakes stop the car with little effort. Coddington rims and BFG rubber. It handles very well.
This Dart gets 22 mpg with the 5 speed automatic and 3:91 gears, and after 10,000 cruising miles it has been rock solid dependable. It has had only oil changes since completion. That’s never happened in my universe before.
400 HP, a kickin’ sound system, and no worries makes one want to drive this car all of the time.
