quote:So, the 5.3L is a 327, correct? If so, my mom`s boyfriend has a 2001 Chevy half ton with the 5.3 in it, and after several times of driving it, I dont think there is any comparison whatsoever between it and the new hemi. Even he said (the owner of that chevy I just mentioned) said that that hemi feels to have a little more power. Tis the reason why Im having a little difficulty believing you when you say, "a 5.3 chevy will destroy a hemi". Also, Ive heard from several people that the new cummins in the 03-04 dodges are putting out like 600ft. lbs. of torque. Not sure how true that is, but its all Ive heard. If it is true, then I would say that is alot more torque than even the new Powerstrokes. Not sure about any of the Duramaxes, tho.
