If it were me, I'd go with the 6.4L 392. Tuning has just recently become available and that was their only real drawback.. You're getting 50 extra horses compared to a 6.1L and a nicer interior to boot.

A used 6.1 will be cheaper though of course.

I hear you, I might be upgrading to one myself eventually, that is if I can come to trade in my current baby, which probably won't happen, I'm pretty attached to her

But the 392 is a fantastic car, can't go wrong with one.

There's no truth in that, now an R/T with an automatic transmission could beat someone with a 6-speed SRT who couldn't drive worth a damn. In general, your auto cars are just going to be faster, but the 6-speed is always gonna be more fun. Not saying a 6-speed can't beat an auto, with a good driver anything is possible.

Both head to head, with no driver error, the SRT will win 10/10 times. Now with some bolt ons (Intake/Tune/Exhaust/Headers), the R/T starts to catch up to the 6.1L, but without major modifications, the 392 is out of it's league.
I still say the the R/T is the best "bang for your buck" Is it worth the $10k more for the 6.1L, upgraded suspension and Brembo brakes the 08-10 SRT offers? that's up to you to decide.

Again, this is what sets the 392 apart, it's in a league of it's own.

Hope this helps

I originally chose an R/T because of the price, and the heritage. There was no SRT in 1970, and that R/T badge is a throwback, it's just classic.
