08 First Edition:



Vortech supercharger @ 9 PSI. 566 at the wheels on a Dynojet. 535 at the wheels on a Dyno Dynamics. Does 11.3x at shitty drag strips on street legal drag radials.

Does OK for what I ask of it. Wish it would sell. Been trying to get rid of it for over two years.

Wanted to bump this for those with the 392 that are running boost.

I busted 6 out of 8 ring lands on my pistons. Turns out, there are quite a few 392's that are busting ring lands. Different tuners, different superchargers, seems the 11:1 compression and the thin ring lands are a recipe for disaster.

Car is currently getting Mahle drop in pistons and upgrade to D1, getting it back in a couple weeks looking for 650 rwhp.

Had a TorRed 08 Charger SRT, traded that in for a then new '11 Chally 392/6spd "Green w/Envy edition". Threw some wheels and some power adders on. Fun car
Funny, I had an 09 HO SRT, traded for 11 GWE 392. But as much as I enjoyed both (though strangely, I had more fun in the 09), I really wanted a Viper again. When I came across the 08 SSG coupe for sale nearby, it was an easy decision.

Same here. Challenger is fun, but not Viper fun.

I'd have an R/T version in my stable if the interior, dash, and steering wheel didn't look like some thing out of a mid-80's Chrysler K-car.

Yea, my car was done last Saturday, picked it up in Ft. Lauderdale and went to Palm Beach raceway on Sunday for a Mopar event. DA was high compared to the last time I ran, so no new PB. Dyno was 615/620 I believe.

Here is a video someone got for me, I am left lane.

I have a 2012 Challenger R/T that is my daily driver and my viper is just my weekend ride. I thought about getting the SRT but I bought the SRT Magnum and the SRT Ram so this time I made the more practical choice. I like it . I did get the standard trans too , so that makes it a little more fun to drive.

Some nice numbers Alan. Does it feel any different now, since rebuilt?
