Can replacing the heads and cam on a 6.1 challenger allow it have 4.5 s
0-60 mph times like the 6.4L? What kind of times am I looking at?

Good heads & cam can get you 475hp at the rear wheels.That's better than the 475hp at the crank of the 6.4L.I say 4.0 0-60 with drag radials.

I think you'd be doing a lot better than that with traction.

Wow, 115 hp more with just heads and cam, isn't that a little generous?

Stock SRT averages 360rwhp, heads, intake, high flow cats and cam, 430 to 440 rwhp?

I could be wrong, but how aggressive of a cam would that be? The new 392 stuff I've read is 410 to 420 rwhp.

OP
I would think you would be on par with the 392 with these mods.

The 1st 0-60 mph I ran on my SRT8 when new & stock was a 4.48. I also put down 380rwhp stock. With only a 93 tune it runs consistant 4.1 0-60 mph using a 1,500 rpm launch, eaze 1/2 into peddle then floor it results in no wheel spin. I hit 3.96 once with heated stock tires & perfect road conditions. All my testing was done at the same test site.

Traction is your biggest challenge to a quick 0-60 so practice that launch. What are your 0-60 times now?

Agreed. If your tires, suspension and (most important) drivings skills arn't there, your new found power will just go up in smoke. There will be more of a fine line between traction and going completely sideways, where as stock it just burns some and goes.
