Default On the ball: Hennessey already out with SRT700 Dodge Challenger upgrade



Click above for high-res gallery of the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8

It's been less than a month since Dodge officially took the wraps off the Challenger SRT8, and horsepower fanatic John Hennessey already has a performance package available called the SRT700 that will have muscle car fans tingling with excitement. Since there's no replacement for displacement, Hennessey adds extra cubes to the 6.1-liter V8 with a stroker crankshaft, pushing it out to 426ci. For good measure, a 67mm turbocharger system is added as well, complete with an air-to-air intercooler. Forged aluminum pistons, forged steel connecting rods, high-flow cylinder heads, and a 3-inch exhaust system are also added, among other upgrades. The result is a tire-shredding horsepower increase of nearly 75% 725 bhp @ 5200 rpm and 750 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. Hennessey claims it's good enough for the Challenger SRT8 to hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds (with the optional drag radial tire upgrade) and top out at 190 mph. Yep, sounds like pretty typical Hennessey stuff.

The black Hennessey Challenger that hit 11.90's has my EDGE converter in it. They were very easy on launch, or I believe they would have seen mid 11's

Yea be carefull, I thought I saw it posted here but must have been on the charger forum.

That guy is hated over there and he is on a new challenger forum as a vendor, but he cant compete with reputable names like PPP and HHP. He tries to play the whole "OH we have multiple 1000+ hp challengers under our belt"

yea who cares they probably arent finished yet and you probably stole parts from it and put it in another customers car.

Yea, I have to remind the new forum members about once a year. I am sure I will have to to do again about this same time next year.

I think before you put down any expensive cash it is important to know what and whom you are buying from.
