    Default Engine size 5.7L

    What does that translate to a 340 or 360. Maybe neither???? Surely not a 318.
    Thanks

    I think the generally agreed upon size is 345.

    Yeah, I knew it was some odd number. That's why, I think, most people use 345 for shorthand. Can't really say 350. That would be a Chevy.

    Actually...Chrysler had a 350 cu in engine long before the Chevy 350 cu in "Mouse Engine" was introduced:

    Chrysler's B engine was a big-block V8 which replaced the early Chrysler FirePower engine in 1958. The B engine started at 350 cu in (5.7 L) and 361 cu in (5.9 L), and a 383 cu in (6.3 L) version appeared the next year. Plymouth called its version of the early B Golden Commando. It produced 305 brake horsepower (227 kW). DeSoto's B engine was the Turboflash. It put out 295 brake horsepower (220 kW). Dodge's B was called the D-500 and produced 320 brake horsepower (240 kW).

    The 350 cu in (5.7 L) B engine had a bore of 4.0625 inches (103.19 mm) and was only produced in 1958. It was used on the following cars:
    1958 Chrysler Windsor
    1958 Plymouth Fury
    1958 Dodge Royal
    1958 DeSoto

    But, yes today anything that's 350...is thought of as a Chevy...
    (But many a stroked small block Chevy is a 383?!?! Hey a 383 is a Mopar!!!! Go figure)

    Yeah I guess it would sound weird to say 347 cid HEMI. But I think it sounds cool "a 347 HEMI". Lets get that on the hood. We may be on to something here.

    Even if you do things to change the situation, you will find yourself in a similar one at some point if the echo thought does not change Can we do anything about such possibilities? Yes, we can balance out the planet by moving ice around, changing reservoirs (China is doing this now, not that they have figured it out yet), etc on the surface and in the perfect balance will come a better orbitStep 3: Always listen to wise voicesI read in another eziner written by Diane Diresta, that in China a wise person is called a Sheng jen, which is translated a one who listens
    Ignorance is bless This is simply working backwards from the manifested to the manifesting thought Nothing will bring you joy more than knowing what it is that you are about on this earth? Make a commitment to get a return on that training investment
