    ZJ Niner vs 5.7 Hemi WK

    So I'm sitting at a light minding my own business with a Hemi WK next to me. So light turns green and I start rolling through minding my own business, when all of a sudden this guy starts going so I slam the throttle and lose him at the rotary. End of ny story just funny my niner is quicker than the Hemi Wk. Lol made my bad night good so I figured I'd share.

    The hemi stock to stock puts out more hp than our niners but the torque to weight ratio makes the niner faster. Add a few mods and it is no contest.

    Oh yeah, I got headers, 52mmtb, muffler, no cat, cut down runners in the kegger, camshaft swap by a previous owner, as well as previous owner put magnum r/t heads in her 112k miles ago. Haha so I guess you could say it's unfair but I have loud exhaust to make it known not your average jeep haha.

    Adavis had a WJ on 35s, a WK Hemi, and a niner. He said it was no contest between the niner and the WK--the niner won every time. Even the WJ gave the WK a run for its money off the line.

    i know that you are gonna say "it was no match for the 5.2", but i'll tell you this...couple of weeks ago i was going to university and i was waiting for the green light (it was the last stop light before the university) while i was thinking about my sh*t. So it came the green light and i gave some gas (not much). Next to me there was this guy in a useless rexton that hit the gas way more than me and he passed me smiling. I said in my mind "this is not gonna happen, i'm not losing against a rexton ", so i smashed the gas and i passed that guy.
    i arrived in the parking lot of the university and there were my buddies waiting, they said that they heard the roar of the v8 so they knew i was coming
    ...btw this is way my theachers hate me

    My Niner is really starting to show her age and mileage. (312313) so as you can imagine it's always something, anyways was thinking a wk with hemi would be an acceptable replacement when she finally says no more and seeing as you own both I'm curious as to your thoughts.

    with a good tune ,ported throttle body and a oil catch can I think you would be happy with a WK hemi . exhaust and cold air intakes are kind of a waste on a WK , from experience you actually lose top end tourque unless you are tuned .
