While we're talking about the 6.4L, wasn't there some talk a little while back of a "high output" 6.4L with maybe a small bump in power? Any idea if that is still happening?
Also, are there any plans to make some of these goodies backwards compatible with the '11-'12 392's (launch control, etc)
I don't think us owners who bought in 2011 and 2012 should totally miss out here on some of these minor, but important tweaks.
Any more info on the "dealer offered" packages rumoured a while back (like stage kits or replacement PCM's)? I'll tell ya, 500hp PCM swap/kit and launch control would make me one happy customer (there's just something psychological about getting your car OVER that magical "500hp" line, even if it only means 30 more hp)
I just want something cool to look forward to without having to buy ANOTHER Challenger!!! (my wife will leave/kill me). It just seems sometimes like Dodge favors those that DON'T buy their products because every year something new/better comes along in small increments.
Whatever IS coming, i'd be hard pressed to ever let my Header Orange baby go as I prefer it 100x over my Hemi Orange car.

As I read around on the interwebs, ought to be shooting for results like these from a 390 motor with a manga charger...engine dyno here but still impressive, even considering expected drive train loss. Whether cam profile and extensiveness of head work on the all pro heads makes for a real comparison is for the interwebs bench racers, but this is where we'd like to see our mopars.... Cut off at 6300 or so to see where effective bop is on our vehicles, unless you have a Tcm that is programmed and you get the picture.
Also, the ZL1 and GT500 both MSRP at $55k. Since we're talking about Chrysler, though, this car will be slower, will cost more, will have little to no aftermarket support and will be warrantied by the most worthless dealership network in the country. You go right ahead and buy one, though.
