Those are solid numbers for challenger. Pretty interesting thread I just traded my 09 srt8 challenger. Vortech supercharger with conservative tune putting down 500rwhp. Car was a blast but have always wanted to get a Viper so made the decision to make the switch.
LOL Yea I hear you. My first kid is on the way and my wife was like "the challenger has a back seat why get rid of that?" I told her do you really want to put in and take out a car seat out of that back seat. I always wanted a viper since I was a little kid so I had to do it before it got too late. I have a lifted jk wrangler that is my daily that is fun to drive so that is my family ride for now. Also as a side note I plan on building a 1970 charger so the new challenger old charger would be too much alike so figured the charger viper combo would look better in the garage.
PWR 426 with a custom grind VVT cam. D1 Procharger running about 12 psi, Procharger Red Race vavle, PSI valve springs, 17% ATI OD damper, SHR Viking NAG1, 2800 stall ProTorque converter, 3.73 getrag (putting 3.06 back in soon). -8 fuel line, Arrington dual fuel hat. I think that is all.
Had some kr on my last dyno run and tune, still need to find the kr source but my tuner figured out a way so I wasn't running -16 degrees timing at WOT.
Just did a dyno run at a local car show and the first and best pull was 716 rwhp.
Sweet numbers man.. I have a challenger SRT8 and a Kenne bell charger SRT8.. I swear about every 6mths I think about selling the charger and getting a viper
Do it!!! Having two srt8s you can afford to get rid of one and not miss it too much. I miss some things about the challenger but the viper is just on another level. Those kenne bell blowers put down some serious power though.
