no - but i bet you could adapt the v8 system to the 6.....someones just gotta pony up the dough and figure out how to make it work.....would probably be a market for the custom "conversion" pieces......just remember, the 6 wont really shake anything though - hell, the v8s dont even shake like the "old days"

Welcome to Challengertalk. Currently no one makes a kit meant for the V6. You'd have to cobble something together. A Guy

A shaker hood with the shaker attached was a thought I had. Hood open you'd not have the look, but hood closed, it would look like a shaker, minus any shaking I know a lot of Trans Am owners did that when they changed up the engine/air cleaner assy.

I think you'll need to make a base plate that attaches to where the current pop in cup studs are for the plastic engine cover. I'm wanting to try something on mine to make it look like dual old school Weiand air cleaners or maybe a large, rectangular milled aluminum Cobra style with the fins milled into it. Just have to find time to think through it...but, I believe it could be done.

I thought they had been out of business for years.....So long ago that I think their system was for the 3.5 - It was a fiberglass hood too - If I wanted one I would go the OEM aluminum hood route and adapt the shaker parts - I bet it would not be as hard as it sounds

Well, last we knew was from their blog:

Suncoast Creations is currently undergoing a restructuring and will be offline for a bit. Updates will be posted on this blog as they become available.

Possible there are new owners. I know their product was supposed to be good, but those that had issues with getting it complained a lot about their customer service. This thread is older:

https://www.challengertalk.com/forum...er-hood-89073/

https://www.bbb.org/us/fl/fort-pierc...-0633-90307210

These guys who got theirs loved it though:

https://www.challengertalk.com/forum...r-hood-375794/

I'd say ask them about closing in 2016, complaints you read, etc. Let them explain the current situation. Also, buy with a CC in case you need to dispute.
