Hi
Can anyone help, Jensen 440 up for grabs in the UK and i was just wondering what is the differences between the Dodge 440 and Jensens 440? Anyone out there knowledgable? They say the Jensen 440 was based on the Dodge. Are there any major differences, e.g. heads, camshaft. Basically im after a 68 Block and want to rebuild to Dodge HP spec. (906 heads etc.)

Thanks

I wouldn't think there are any differences between the two.   I believe the Jensen IS the Chrysler engine, plaing and simple.  Not sure if it's the HP model though.

Sorry I can't answer whether or not they're the exact same engine or not but I did look around a bit and now I know that Jensen also offered the 440 six pack in the Interceptor SP.

I think they used the high performance motors, they didn't have the same emissions laws to conform to
if you're going to rebuild it anyway it shouldn't make any difference

Also, here is a link with two companies that might be able to answer your questions.

From what I remember reading it was a HP motor and built no different than what was here in the USA, though I think the oil pan may custom for the car.

My cousin rebuilt one for a guy and he just used regular Dodge parts and built it to Dodge specs so it can't be too different.

Same engine. And you could also get the 6pack/barrel in the Jensen. And you could still get the 440 six pack in the Jensen in 1972 when Ma stopped here.
