R/T. Because you always want to go faster.

If you want to go really fast start with SRT. You are right. A s/c on srt = R/T hp. A sc on a R/T is a little more than a 6.4's hp. With each model you get better brakes and suspension. Both are important if you are going fast

You can get RT power with a supercharger on a V6 but after that there isnt much for aftermarket performance parts for the V6.

A supercharger will cost you $4500-$7000 depending on the type.

Having owned an R/T and now an SXT I'd say: option C , the SRT if money isn't an issue.

The SXT is a terrific scooter and I love mine, the R/T in my mind is an odd fit in between the V6 and the SRT. Either go with a 014 SRT or wait and get the R/T in 15 with the 392. If it's speed you want you might as well start at the top and go from there.

You will have a bit more than R/T power for roughly the same or less cost with a centrifugal SC - price is less than $5k for parts. Steve White Motors is currently doing a test of adapting a roots-style supercharger designed for a 3.6L Jeep to a Challenger - very cool, however cost was something like $7k for that setup. There is a thread on here documenting it, keep an eye on it. There are also custom turbo builds floating around, and another roots-style SC I saw pop up recently. Lots of activity surrounding the 3.6L, which is very cool.

It really boils down to do you care more about having something unique like a custom forced induction V6, or care more about having something plug and play, warrantied, better resale value like a stock R/T? They're both good options. Personally, I think showing off a custom install on an atypical engine is much more interesting than a me-too stock engine, but that's me. Easiest route is obviously to go with a off-the-lot R/T or SRT, or even a 2015 R/T with the 392.

I have said this for years and been balked at over and over.
yeah you can drive off the lot with a 375HP V8 or you can cram 375HP into a V6 aftermarket.
When both owners pop their hoods you can bet I'll be checking out the modded V6.
Same goes for a blown 5.7 over a factory 392.

What I don't get is the OP signature says he has a '13 SRT?

If money is not a problem, I would say start with a 6.4 and mod as you like.
