It's all in the tune guys...When we buy these cars, you can bet we are not going to keep them stock for long. Buy a hand held tuner, (SCT, Predator, etc), CAI and simple cat back and you looking at 50 more HP easy.

ORIGINAL: TaylorSF

does it put out 390 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque when the Challenger R/T gets 370 or 372 hp in the auto and 375 in the manual. Is is just a different tune? Does it require premium instead of mid grade.

I would love 390 crank HP in my R/T.
Reminds me of when the 94 Mustangs came out, the first change from the boxy Fox Mustang. Same engine but less HP. Turns out underhood height restrictions on the newer body style required a shorter intake with shorter and more compact runners, resulting in fewer ponies.

Maybe the same situation here, trucks have more room for different (taller) upper intake manifolds.

I could see what your saying MOT... If and only if, there wasn't a 6.1 lurking under the same hood... You know?? Since Taylor first posted this I've seen at least two different dyno's putting HP at the crank from 390 on one and 402 on another... So Im still waiting to see a couple more, unfortunatly I haven't been able to find any others...

I believe this will be one of those white lies. 400 HP is more to the truth. Why would you pay $40,000 or more for an SRT-8 at 425 HP then $30,000 for an R/T with 400 HP. 25 HP difference. So put it at 375 HP and you have a larger difference. Advertisement. I would opt for the R/T with 400 HP over the SRT-8 at 425 HP. And thats what I'm going to do. Black R/T 6-speed here I come. I know I know the SRT-8 has more options and bigger brakes. Better suspension and handling. But with 400 HP on tap and a savings of $10,000... I'll go the R/T route. With mods and a little more coin in my pocket I'll have the grin with-in a grin And $1700 gas guzzler tax no thanks.
