Just for clarification in response to some comments received we are fully aware this was not a Hemi motor and never claimed it to be.As mentioned in the video it is the decals only that follow in the style of the RT-which of course had the Hemi motor!

Valiant Charger re-build
Have you ever wondered just how much work is involved in a total nut and
bolt rebuild of your dream car. This Charger was my dream, and a condition
that i marry the missus, was that she'd let me finish the Charger. I

wedding, Nov 07! Anyway, my advice for the budding car craftsman, draw up

Brett, Sam, Ads and Shane Dynotest Bretts 265 Chrysler
Valiant Hemi Six Cylinder engine with a Custom Megasquirt Fuel Injection
& Crank Fired Coilpack Ignition system on Sam's Engine Dyno.
It made about 300 Hp (Ok, 297) with lots more tuning to do in the car, but
ran very well with even the limited amount of tuning time we had on the Dyno. Tested with the
Weber Carbs as a Baseline, then the Megasquirt Injection to compare. The
O2 Based AutoTune function is Great ! We had it dialled in to the Ballpark
Map with about 10 minutes work.... Later in the car.. we will "engage" the
Nitrous System ! :)
Looking Forward to getting it in the Charger and having some more time to
