Default Dodge Challenger Super Stock to Sema!!!

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do...cleId=116894#2

The article says Super Sport but other sources say Super Stock. This could be an SRT-8 version

What do you guys think of a Challenger S/S 6.4 with 500 Horse, ha!

Sema is October 31st btw.

Better yet, how about a 6.6 ltr. for the Challenger with 550 Horse. Jeez, I'm getting dizzy, loll!

DCX is not going to let Ford or GM out power them, never have!

More good news!

'What this means to you: The Nitro Hemi sounds like fun, but we're more interested in the Challenger SS "concept of the concept."'

Um, *yeah*!!!

Wonder what it will look like...

I thought we already had a post on this topic. Oh well, just a few things.
1. I find it hard to believe that they will offer an engine just as powerful as the upcoming Viper for a lower price, just doesn't add up. 2. The 6.6L and 7.1L are just rumors for right now.
3. Just because they can get that amount of power out of the engine doesn't mean that the EPA is going to allow it.
4. The 426 HEMI was a 7.0L, not a 7.1L. I know it's nit picky of me, but I had to say it.

Why wouldn't the EPA allow 500-600 hp? They ALLOWED 550 hp for the Ford GT. I think we will see 500 plus hp in a limited edition Challenger in 2009 or 2010. These are some awesome times as far as the horsepower wars go. Buy now. They won't last long. Some granola munchin' liberal will find some reason to limit a car to 150 hp just like the junk we were offered from 75-85. Remember those boring automotive years? My mother had a 1981 Dodge Omni. I think it had 85 hp. Wow, what a rocket! 0-60 in 35 seconds!

Welcome to the site, wirewilly!

Emission standards. The HEMI designed engines naturally have trouble passing emission standards as it is. The more power you pump out of smaller displacement, normally the worse the emissions are. The 5.4L probably is better in passing the emissions test since it is higher tech engine. I'm not sure about which is more difficult to pass the emission standards, old fashion (but better in my bias opinion) engine designs with higher compression or forced air induction.

Some of this is already happening to a degree with diesels. The stricter environmental regulations are forcing the manufactures to offer larger displacement so then they can pass the emissions tests. I'm not a fan of the increases that have been added.

Wow, what a rocket! 0-60 in 35 seconds!
LOL! Yes I remember the Omni. It was actually 84 hp, quit making it sound more powerful than it was, the 1 hp makes a big difference you know! Just kidding!

I'm not sure if you were aware of this or not, but not Omnis were slow and boring. The Omni GLH (Goes Like H#!!) was pretty good as was the Shelby GLHS. Here is a link about the Shelby. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shelby_GLHS Granted it was no 426 HEMI powered Challenger, but still respectable.
