thanks im aware of the advertised #'s... but I remember reading a post that Andre put up about the zoomers on the R/T. He seemed to mention that the dyno #'s for the R/T were a little more than expected compared to the advertised #'s.
Maybe there is more pony in the R/T than advertised. Just wondering if anyone has concrete #'s they could share. Thanks again...

Good question. We want the rwhp and rwtq, these are real time numbers. The engine HP numbers are meaning less. I'm concerned for the SRT8 and the RT because both are so heavy, the HP to weight ratio's are lacking. Don't flame guys, because I have a RT 6-speed on order....My KB Mach one has 605rwhp and weights 3550lbs with 1/2 tank of gas and my lard butkus in it. Do the math on the power to weight ratio and compare it to the SRT8 along with it's weight and you will see why they are at a disadvantage... Nuff said about that, I love the look of the Challenger and I can't wait for mine to hit the dealership, suppose to be the first of the year. Wooohoooo....

Im very interested, because I have a feeling that Dodge under-rated the numbers( like there infamous for) But I think it's to get the 6.1 litre's to move quicker.
09' Hemi Ram's are pumping 390hp stock... hmmm... just seems like such a grey area... and on top of that when... if... I get my R/T... it's got to be some simple tweek to get that 20hp... You know??? Just my thoughts...
The factory just adjusts it to basically "Dumb down" the engine... they have the product already competing with the Tundra for HP wars with the 390 I mentioned... So I want to know why I can't have that in my R/T??? Or what exactly was done to essecnially make the engine "less" powerfull... because to me it's sooo sooo obvious Dodge did this on purpose... Any thoughts???

You sure did'nt have those #s before mods. So know that X amount of cash thrown at the Challenger produces Y at the rear wheels. Enjoy your new Challenger and when I'm finished modding mine I'll give you some power to weight ratios No replacement for... cash and lots of it, being thrown at a car. It has no choice but to increase in HP.
