    More likely to be ran over. People act like it's a highway. I'm right next to the high school too. Lol

    So after doing some research, it appears in 09 is when they had some timing chain issues. (With the introduction of the vvt system)
    Got some delete pipes for the mid mufflers. Maybe the rain will hold off tomorrow.

    2009 is when the Class Action lawsuit was launched. The timing chain problem existed on all the MDS engines, even before 2009.
    2009 also introduced the lifter problem wiping out cams. My brother has a 2011 with this problem. Still waiting for the cam after months of being on back order.
    Apparently, Mopar fixed the lifter problem in 2016.
    The older Hemis also had problems dropping an exhaust valve seat if the engine got hot/over-heated.
    The 5.7 Hemi is a great engine when its working , but they have their fair share of issues.

    I guess I can't find it then. Lol
    Yeah, apparently all the new hemis have the lifter problem. Just cheap penny pincher parts.
    I have heard of the valve seats dropping on the early ones.
    I do have a recall for the rollover valve. Possibly the airbags as well, can't remember.
