    I am pretty noob to the whole car scene but i was wondering exactly what makes the hemi engine unique from other engines.

    hemispherical combustion chamber. the shape of the combustion chamber of the head is like a half circle instead of being shaped like a wedge like most other heads are. The hemispherical combustion chamber is also more efficient and helps to burn the fuel better and make more power.

    hemispherical head design. The new Hemi's are actually not true hemi's in that sense, but its more just a marketing ploy

    i think it was something like that :dunno: i don't know exactly, i'm not really into dodges, i just know what it is and why its called a hemi. that sounds about right though, probably something with emissions but now they have technology to take care of it maybe

    I thought we were past the point as to what the hemi is, the question was how it was unique. everybody has the hemi cc, and Dodge sure as hell didn't come up with the orignal design.
