Jasper Engines & Transmissions has extended its lineup of remanufactured Chrysler 5.7L Hemi V-8 engines for several truck models.
The engine has been made available for the following late-model truck applications: 2016 Ram 1500, 2016-2017 Ram 2500 and the 2016-2017 Ram 3500.
Jasper made improvements to the original engine designs, including a redesign of the piston. Along with graphite-coated skirts to prevent piston scuffing, and dry start up, Jasper’s redesigned pistons offer additional advantages.
The redesigned piston has 40% stronger compression lands compared to OE first generation design for reduced ring heat and improved ring sealing, according to Jasper. It has been engineered with twice the piston skirt, or thrust area, compared to OE second generation design, for improved durability and reduced scuffing tendency. Two additional center skirt drainbacks provide more oil return to prevent the oil ring from sticking and reduce oil consumption. Finally, Jasper pistons use a greater pin bore area, with a full-floating pin design, that reduces scuffing.
In addition, the remanufactured Hemi V8 uses Jasper-designed multi-layer steel head gaskets for better protection against leaks. They feature a larger firing ring bore and improved embossment for a better combustion seal. Jasper’s MLS gaskets are more robust in design, which helps prevent leaks and maintains OE compression ratio. The outer gasket layers are also PTFE coated to reduce wear.
The 5.7L Hemi V-8 is covered by Jasper’s 3-Year/100,000 Mile nationwide, transferable, parts and labor warranty.
