If you get the V6 option, which bumps up the price to about 30k, you can get 278 hp in the Honda, with a whopping 252 ft lbs of torque. I would imagine the others are similar, I'm not going to look...

It is just not here in the "muscle car" world either.


I have been watching a "HP war" go on between Polaris, CanAm and Arctic Cat (underdog) the past few years in the SxS/UTV market.

I got pulled over twice for talking on a cell phone and I didn't even have my phone with me.
I'm a retired FDNY Lt, so I'm always polite to cops except when dealing with a dick.

Hmm. With a quick look at the Dorman site, it seems 917-323 fits the V6. They make one for the 6.1 (917-322) but I didn't see one for the 5.7. I only checked '09, though.

I like having 4 available engines for the Challenger. That's what makes the brand popular. Everyone can get what they want (i.e., 3.6L, 5.7L, 6.4L and 6.2L). This is similar to the late 60s and...

OP, I think the point you're missing is that: yes the 16 Camaro has more power, yes it has lost 200 lbs. But it is also smaller. No matter how you look at it, those 2" here and there transform to big...

The 5.7 is used in Ram trucks, that's why it can be had for so cheaply. The 6.4 is only used in a handful of vehicles, and all of them are relatively expensive. I wonder why.

I don't know about...

What is everyone smoking to believe they can offer the 6.4 at the same price point as the 5.7? With added power must come the brakes, the suspension, etc. Scat packs are about as cheap as it's...

For me, I could care less what Camaro and Mustang are doing. They each could have 750HP and cost $45K and I still would not have one. The new style of both is just too modern/euro/generic (insert...

I agree the 5.7 is a small block. However, the 6.4 is also a small block. Displacement does not determine if an engine is a small or big block, that is determined by the overall size and weight of...

The Camaro caused the wreck for sure, but the dumbass in the pick up that was intentionally blocking traffic needs to have his balls stapled to a wooden chair.

SAE is most reliable estimate of crank horsepower
