of course it's a marketing gimmick, putting that HEMI badge on that will increase HP, it's like putting a Type-R sticker, ///M, AMG or any other badge like that, it will increase sales

I don't think its a gimmick, and it certainly isnt a "fake" hemi. All Hemi refers to is the hemispherical shaped combustion chambers, there are 2 spark plugs per cylinder, and there are a few other things. ( I'm obviously not an expert!) It of course isnt the same Hemi from the 60's as it was 426 cubic inch, while the new one is 360 cubic inch. Still a Hemi though.

The Acura Integra was a Hemi...

It doesn't mean anything... it's like advertizing LIQUID COOLED... or some other generic engine configuration..

It's telling your generic info, kinda like this:
"V60 Magnesium: four-stroke longitudinal 60 V-twin; liquid cooling with three-way pressurized circuit; double overhead camshaft operated by a mixed gear/chain system; four valves per cylinder; patent AVDC (Anti Vibration Double Countershaft"

Seriously... It's 100% marketing.
