Of course everyone forgets the guy who proved you all wrong, took a bone stock 3.6 challenger from 15.2 at 92 mph 1/4 mile to 13.9 @ over 100 mph using just bolt on's that anyone can do (can tune to boot) and provided lots of data how to make a 3.6 go fast. 5.0 0-60 times NA and 4.0 supercharged.

Even than, many of you still tell others there's nothing to improve on.


So many special folks on this earth. I guess there has to be.........

As of today, I still don't know anyone who has cracked the 13's NA like I did. Even had a few mods to even get mid 13's if so wanted at that time.

Then I supercharged it to 12.5 at 108 mph on a good air day, proof on paper 12.8 at 106 with a 1.7x 60ft time on a crappy day.


So I guess nothing improves performance, haven't seen any proof, nothing improves power, the factory did all the work and made it 100% efficient with no room to get more out of it, so don't bother, anyone who says different from this don't believe them, they know nothing and spreading false hp claims.

This is the mindset of 98% of the long term v6 challenger owners on this website. Argued for years with these folks, even with proof, got ousted. Such #$%^&*( many of them.

Carry on.

3.70 gears or 3.07? I just bought a 2019 GT RWD and it has the 3.07's - sure could use 3.70's!

Has to be 3.07.

3.7 isn’t a ratio offered from factory AFAIK, though it seams like I remember seeing someone had found out Richmond Gears made a replacement set of gears for their LX’s 3rd member that was in a 3.7ish ratio.

So it is possible a Challenger could end up with a 3.7 gear ratio in rear end, but it wouldn’t be stock and would have to have been purchased aftermarket and swapped out with gears that came in car’s pumpkin.

That’s my understanding on it anyway...If I’m wrong, hopefully someone will pipe up and correct me so we can all be on the same page!

I think it's the cost of the bolt-ons that makes people not want to believe it is worth it...especially if you can get a used Hell Cat.

BTW - if you go on the HP tuners forum there are a couple of tuners that claim the 3.6 responds well to VVT tweaks of the stock cams...especially when running forced induction. On the Hemis it is a different story, playing with VVT on a stock cam gains you nada if running NA.
