does anybody knows what "HEMI" means or actually is?

nowdays it's used as meaning power or some shit like that but it is actually a shortened version of the word "hemispherical" and it relates to the combustion chamber design that's been around since the 50's, so next time a car salesman tells you the engine is Hemi, ask him wtf that is.....drinking

"Hemi" is quite literally just shorthand for any engine that uses a hemispherically shaped (domed) combustion chamber. The term has been so overused in marketing as it also implies power from those of us old enough to remember the old big-block Chrysler Hemis and again just supposedly synonymous with "high powered" engines for the rest.

Honestly, nearly every engine today uses a hemi combustion chamber design so the term is really pretty useless for anything BUT marketing hype eye rolling

BTW, from the look of the construction of the actual snow blower part of this thing that V-8 would quickly shred that wimply lookin bunch of crap in no time (*facepalm*)

and then ask them, "why is the Hemi such an expensive option?"
