That sounds more like it. I cant see reworking a production engine for 1500 units.

2010 Challenger SRT8 6.1 - SOLD
2014 Durango Limited AWD 3.6
2011 Subaru Outback 2.5
2015 Subaru WRX - ORDERED.

Say it aint so!

My answer to all of that is that not all things in R&D are strictly focused on an end-product application. A supercharged Hemi strikes me as something that was in concurrent development all along, just to have explored/investigated that scenario. If a scenario emerges where it could be put to use, then it is already 85% there. If it doesn't emerge, it just resides on the tinker shelf of R&D.

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/

Just a word to the wise...
Nah, RS has stated a few times that there will be more than a limited amount of 6.2SC engine's and that it wont be a limited production thing. So I'm not worried about getting one. Because anything he say's is pretty much what happens.

Hopefully they sell it in a crate version as well. Would make a great E-Rod setup. Imagine dropping it in a old dart or 1960 Chrysler 300. WOW! Im pretty sure it would be a $16k crater.

My guess is on the Detroit Auto or New York Auto show.

Thanks Ray, as always very appreciated. I'm hoping for the Detroit show. If they wait until late march I'd be suprised... That would only give 2-3 months for the pondering.

It would be interesting to see if they incorporate direct injection.

I'm kinda happy and sad to hear of any supercharged version coming out. I'm happy that Dodge is trying to compete a little with the ZL1's and 500's out there.....but as much as I'd love to have one, I just can't justify going from an R/T, then a 6.4...then a 6.2 blown challenger all with a 5 year time frame.

The N/A 6.4 is enough on the street already, and the aftermarket is finally coming out with blower kits...which should get the existing 6.4's in the mid-to-high 500HP range anyway.

I just need to be sure that if/when the 6.2 blown versions of the SRT ever come out on the market, I WILL NOT go on any test drives!!! I may lose what little logical reasoning I have! lol

Exactly my thoughts, but probably have less logical reasoning than you to lose.
