Why the Hemi Design Creates More Horsepower

Please allow the demonstration to load completely. This may take a couple of minutes. On the left side is a typical stock small block Chevy (wedge design) and on the right side is a typical stock early hemi. Please note the sharp turns and small intake ports inherent to the wedge design as compared to the hemi. Basically it just takes a lot of high performance parts to make an average wedge design breath as good as a stock hemi.
