Hey Mopar MuscleWell I took a look at your site and mag. I luv Hemi cars, any thing Mopar especially with a Hemi and like many of the V6 guys always wanted to make it a bit faster.So I thought I stop by an share my story. I saw a bunch of your guys at Carlisle when I was on the Dodge showcase[url]http://youtu.be/NqxkDHOoebQ[/url]and thought I share my story here too! Just to provide some context this is the worlds first and only 6.1 SRT Hemi ProwlerThink a SRT 6.1 at about 2850LbsMy car was featured at this years Chrysler nationals and Modern mopar. so you may have seen it.My site is [url]www.facebook.com/hemiprowler[/url]BackstoryI had a Prowler for over 12 Years. Back in the day the 3.5 was pretty nice but also wanted it to be a bit more of a modern hot rod. With the modern day Hemi decided to make a move.Now doing this swap in a Prowler is no easy task. Its pretty much a custom build took over 12 months and involves a ton of fabication, electronics and patience to make it all work. The heart of the Hemi has a bolt on Trans and the prowler Tran set up is in the rear.The build is pretty detailed and the great folks over at Allpar put a nice article together below that walks through all of the key details of the project.click belowSRT Prowler Project: Plymouth with 6.1 Hemi V8 EngineI will put some of the key build picts below and look foward to seeing my fellow mopars on the street.You can see all of the videos and details also on[url]www.facebook.com/hemiprowler[/url]Original Car before buildLast picture the car as a V6V6 pulledFirst ever engine drop in of new 6.1 hemiThis is a big motorCome to papaDrop it inIt's in there and yes it fits
Pictured here is our custom bell-housing engine adapter to adapt the 6.1 Hemi engine to accept the prowler style drive shaft an rear trans. The rear engine mount is also integrated into the bell-housing.[/IMG]Modified panHandbuilt headers and exhaustCustom shaker hood from a Challenger The first step was a custom trim ring.On the picture below you will see a aluminum ring around the shaker. This set the positioning and build up area that the shaker with come through from the engine.Then using tape the team laid out the build up outline design form the custom aluminum piece to be built, formed and attached to the hood. As you can see its slopes only leaving the top of the shaker sticking through. Very creative.
