Wow Blackie RT, talk about mirror image, although it was a few months ago I was looking for a SRT Challenger and ended up buying a Mustang!
I stumbled across a Roush 427R on eBay while looking at Challengers and couldn’t get it out of my head, I was looking at a SRT8 # 392 of 1100 but could not bring myself to bid after seeing that Mustang.
After some research I decided a 2011 or newer Mustang was the way to go with the Coyote motor. To cut a short story even shorter I ended up buying a 2011 5XR Roush and had the dealer update it to 2013 tune which has over 500 RWHP, this thing is dangerous fast, sticks like glue to the road and is seriously cool and even the wife (who is not a car person and doesn’t even drive) loves it
Now my head says the Mustang is far better bang for buck than just about anything and don’t get me wrong it IS a great car, and it is on a lot of levels far superior to the Dodge, yet I still yearn for a Challenger, must be that Dodge blood in my veins! I guess that’s why I still lurk here and are quietly trying to figure a way for a Challenger to find its way into my garage.
I think if I could have bought a package on the Dodge like Roush (Shelby, Saleen) does for Ford at a competitive price I would have bought a Dodge, doesn’t have to have a blower but a good handling and brake package at a reasonable price would have made a difference, hey but that’s just me.
