I dont think youl find ANY stock 318 on the planet that will take 800 hp STOCK. you might want to go over to LS1tech.com and educate yourself before you throw out false information =)
Oh lets just say the LS platform that cant touch your beloved 318 wont How Many 24 hour at lemans? and won best engine platform in said racing sanction. hmm I dont remember ever seeing a dodge get that praise against Ferrari Lamborghini Mercedes BMW Audi among many others.
800 hp stock.. What does "stock" mean?
The mopar smallblock is an old design, much older than the LS engine. of course the LS is better, but that doesn't mean its always a good idea to just go swapping LS motors into every vehicle around.
personally I get tired of looking under hoods at car shows or wherever and seeing chubby motors in there. Yeah its cheaper, but everyone has them.
I have a TJ with a 2.5, and Might get my hands on a 5.0 ford motor... I d love to see mopar(jeep) stay mopar.. but its also a cool swap that not everyone has, and the ford SB is lighter than a 4.0 jeep motor
