5.2 magnum motor vs old school LA motor

I think they're a great engine. My 1986 D150 with 318 ran 19.22 at the track. My 92 D150 318 magnum went 16.22 totally stock off the showroom floor. Better fuel mileage too. So a 3 second better power and way more reliable than this Gen III Hemi crap we're stuck with now with their camshaft, lifter and manifold issues.
I've gone 397,000 miles with what you're calling a "crap" engine.\

Lucky you. I've had 2 of them and they're both junk.
