I am quite surprised, given how innovative and driven this community is, that no one has come up with a "Coat Hanger Delete Mod". There certainly seems to be ample demand. Maybe one of the aftermarket vendors could produce a kit, complete with color printed instructions, that shows how to remove the coat hanger and replace it with nice piece of billett. Document some before & after dyno runs to see how much horsepower this mod generates.

And maybe, just maybe, we can convince Dodge to produce a special go-even-faster "1320 model with coat hanger delete" from the factory. Just for the really serious racers, of course.
I guess we could special order one like that. It take top priority then. Lol.

Just wait, I’m sure this topic isn’t done...
These things have a life of their own.

Hmmm, this is dangerous....I'm a bit nutty when it comes to weight reduction, and now you've convinced me to make my own "1320 model with coat hanger delete". I think I might even make a video of it! lol That 4 ounces is going to make all the difference!

Will the Coat Hanger Delete Mod require any AlfaOBD intervention? :unsure:

Initially, yes, of course. Probably a special racing edition that eliminates every ounce of extra weight. Then, in subsequent years, it will be an option on the higher end models. Eventually you will be able to get a base V6 with no other options except the "Coat Hanger Delete" for an extra $1.

But that is a bit presumptuous on my part. This could end up being a dealer installed option - a modern "Yenko" if you will. That would make it very rare. Long after we are gone, there could be Barrett-Jackson auctions where the highly coveted "Coat Hanger Delete" survivor cars carry a premium at auction....with documentation and provenance, of course. After the racing potential of this mod is uncovered, purists would be on the alert for 'fakes' which were altered later on. Only genuine documented cars would command such a high market price.
