The HO (High Output) part of the 3.5L HO designation for those engine refers to this particular incarnation of Dodge's 3.5L engine design I believe.Opinions please,
In 2010 wouldn't the Challenger 3.5 V6 been considered a high output engine for being a V6? 250hp for a 215ci engine to me would be. Am I wrong? Thoughts...
Interesting...I'm trying to think if I've seen any other vehicles over the years that have had an "HO" emblem that could be re-purpose, but nothing's coming to mind...if you could find something that Honda makes with an all capital emblem on it, you could always take the "HONDA" and chop off the "NDA" to leave just the "HO", but finding an emblem like that in the right size and color is probably a long shot.The reason I asked is because it would be nice to find or have made an emblem 3.5L HO to put on the hood of an SE, in the same place the R/T or SRT have HEMI. Just to kindda 'bling' up the car a bit. Or even put it on the grill where RT goes...in red. Trying to think of some things to add to the car to make it stand out some.
Like you explained, my opinion is that the latest 3.5 is a HO. Now I know. Cool.
I didn't realize there was already an HO badge that the other LXs got...cool, well then half your work is already done for you. You just have to find one you like and paint it if necessary and affix where desired!The engine is code EGG for the 3.5. Same as Chargers and 300s which get the HO badge. Its the same motor just the Challenger didnt get a badge.
The 3.5L was taken as far as it was going to go naturally aspirated. The design was aging, borderline outdated, and they had already used every trick in the book on it to extend its life as long as they did. But that's not a bad thing; any engine that can live for 2 decades or more in production of numerous different car models like the 3.5L did deserves some respect.250hp is nice but I would rather see 100hp/L. I think the motor could do that if the cams were more aggressive, forced induction and fuel economy was not an issue, but sadly this motor never got much love from the aftermarket.

HEY!! Pump the brakes there, Richy McRitch!Afraid I can't say. It was on a body panel. Any body panel in the hot sun will get to quite high temps. I don't think the hood specifically would be an issue.
While my current humble abode is definitely more spacious and fancy than that one, it is sadly quite a step up from the ramshackle box I lived in as an adolescent child and teenage nukester :frown:
Well, it did leave an impression on me...no it literally left an impression on me! My paternal grandfather built it to suit his rather short stature. He never met me though, so how could he have known that I would be taller than he ever was by my 12th bday and top out at 6' 8" by the time I graduated HS and moved out to go to college?But that molded you! The merits of that I leave to others >
