92f150I6 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
The only problem i may see with using the hemi would be hop up parts unless thay are the same as it's bigger brother. If you want to build a unique head turner with powewr use the hemi, but it will be $$$$$ to do. The ford smallblock is cheaper to do, and easier to get parts for, but you will loose the coolness factor. ANd Hemis's can make HUGE power.
