5.2 Litres Of Neck-Snapping Driveshaft-Twisting...

aw who am I kidding. Have 318 with 406,000 kms on it, never had a valve cover off yet. Ticks along like an old Timex and just about as exciting, too. Sucks fuel fairly well and wouldnt pull the skin off day-old pudding.
*BUT*
Has been trouble-free with the exception of a pooched 46RE (suprise suprise). Has coped well with the insult of a lightweight plow being hung off the front starting at about 350,000 km. And no, the trans went long before I started the plowing foolery. Has nice cooler now to go with the shiny Mopar reman 46RE.

*knocking on wood*

318 in a QC 1500 4x4 for now. I'm going to start planning a 390 stroker for this winter.

99 INTENSE BLUE QC 4X4 318... SOLD last year to fund moving.

Looking for a new truck now that I'm settled in. Wish me luck

Here's my beast I bought her last week for $4200 Canadian from a Dodge dealership. I just put new rotors, calipers and pads on her.

The 97 I just purchsed 3 weeks ago has the 360. I don't think they put the 318 in the 3/4 ton trucks.

I think both are great engines. I just got all of the brake/suspension issues ironed out on my Ram on Monday night and was actually able to take it for a nice drive (the first decent drive since I have owned it, because before it shook/vibrated so hard on the brakes it felt like the front end was going to shake apart!).

I have to say, I was very happy with the performace of the 360. My truck has 147K on the clock and it seemd to pull strong, real strong.

i just bought a 97 SST with a 360 with 195000. with that many miles and leaking valve seals its still pretty fast. ive heard that a SST is quick but it still suprised me.
318s are awesome engines cause of the rod stoke ratio(they hold up to high rpm and abuse), but there is no NO REPLACEMENT FOR DISPLACEMENT. my 360 builds power from the moment you hit the pedal. gears have alot ot do with the sst though.

Regretable a 318 power and gas mileage wise, though very lucky as all I ever had to repair from my pocket was dual exhaust, fuel pump,thermostat, tires, and 3 oxygen sensors so far, other then a few tuneups, and brakes. At 165,000 on the clock.
