I had wanted a Challenger since seeing the first concept car photo. I would settle for nothing less than an SRT8 - no R/T for me. Then I decided to wait for the 392 to come out and the price to settle a bit. So, one day i was sitting at my desk, and suddenly stood up, walked out and traded my hunting truck on an R/T. I figured the 6.1's will devalue and it will be a while before the 392's are affordable. I talked the dealer into catbacks and mopar CAI, which i am having installed tomorrow. As a former WS6 Trans Am owner, I have not been impressed with acceleration. I also have the auto w/3.06 rear so I was not expecting 0-60 in 4 seconds.

Then I started scheming to get a supercharger. I figured I could make 392 power and then some on a budget that way. However, the wife stood between me and my $7,000 prize. I don't know how I did it, but I whined enough that I will be having the magnacharger installed next week! Looking forward to 500+ at the crank! I am kicking myself a bit now for getting the CAI, but it was a freebie and the supercharger installer said he can fab it for use with the magnuson.

So, will I be able to lay some decent smoke with the auto/3.06 after supercharging next week? Someone please say yes!

I too had thought of ordering a 392. Saving my pennies while talking to a few dealers in hopes of getting mine exactly how I wanted it. I knew this would take months, if not over a year, to happen. Well, I just couldn't wait. On XMas eve Santa coaxed me into a 2010 R/T 6spd. What a deal! As an ex-300C SRT-8 driver all I can say is...this is much better!
