    LOL, years ago we had a rash of folks that thought Subaru was an Australian make (due to a particular advertising campaign), but German is a new one on me.

    I wonder whether the six valve per cyl. Maserati biturbo motor had a hemi too. That chamber probably looked a lot like a golf ball, with lots of facets set on a series of arcs.
    Old post but here's the real answer. "Hemispherical" means the half of a sphere, which by definition means it needs to be very close to round. The earth is an irregular sphere because it's slightly out of round, but it has to be very very close to round to be called a sphere. So to be a "hemi" it would need to be half of a sphere in shape.

    Wow I don't even know what to say. German? And your Civic Si can beat a Mustang GT with a supercharger and supporting mods? I assume you have forced induction yourself, correct?

    That was really painful to read.. grammar much? ... I'm sure you're 09 civic can be a car that does a factory high 13sec 1/4 mi. Sure as I am you passed grammar lessons in grade school...

    Oh, and before I forget;
    SUBARU= parent company FUJI heavy industries... I think you get the point.

    There is a loose and ancient connection at the aero firm level (Nakajima) pre-war, but that's all I can think of for a tie-in.

    I can kill these Hemi's all day everyday. Only one beats me and that's the 6.1 in the Charger and Challengers.

    Well there's not a lot of cars that have it other than that. Cars with it include those and the 300C, and I'd be surprised if that can't beat you.

    There's a number of trucks and SUVs with them, but ok they're trucks and SUVs. Glad you can beat them.

    The Cherokee and Commander also have it. The SRT8 version of the Cherokee will smoke you, and the regular version will be even. The Commander is too big and heavy and you can beat that like you beat the trucks.

    Alright let me re-word this. Any Hemi without an SRT badge won't beat me stock for stock. I raced my friends Dodge Charger R/T stock for stock and beat them in the 1/4 mile twice. Regular version Cherokee will be even? No.

    I own a Hemi truck, a 2003 quad cab 4x4. With an intake & programmer it runs 15.9 so I'd hope you can outrun that. OTOH, the new 390hp 5.7 Hemi in a single cab 2wd runs like a 14.0 so that isn't too shabby for a standard issue pickup truck. Seeing as how your Altima runs 14.80s or so it isn't going to manhandle all trucks and it'll have its hands full with a garden variety 300C/Charger/Challenger, moreso in the current Hemi power than the older 345hp version.

    I'm replacing my Legacy GT with a 300C SRT8 when I can. I like the platform that much.

    Regular version Cherokee with the Hemi posts very similar numbers to your car. It's a driver's race. If traction is at all an issue, like on slick/wet/snowy pavement, the AWD Cherokee will beat you.
