Mine;s real stealthy for 450rwhp and 405rwtq, still has the stock exhaust, but has LG headers, which at WOT, sound great.The Charger really reminds me of my old 2000 Trans Am, no frills, just noise and power.The wife is really having to get used to it, as her previous ride was a 6cyl. Altima 3.5, which, I must say, was probally the fastest 6cyl I've ever driven.Killed an 05 Stang GT in it...needless to say he wasn't happy.The Charger is bone stock but the wife already has the itch I get when getting into a new car....mods mods mods. She'll have to go light, I think we'll probally try to find someone to tune it and maybe a cai and 160 stat and done.

The Dodge doesn't have any mods.The 425/420 HP/TQ was factory, and oh yes, the vette will kill it ,badly, but....from a roll @ 80MPH, the charger stayed nearby until 135+....which is much better than the GT500 I ran when I was stock! The Charger ran 13.5 the first time down the track with a full tank of gas, inexperience in launching it and all our crap in it. So far, from what I've read, the best anyone has gotten bone stock was 13.2....I can do that easily in it.(1/4 tank of gas= 100lbs less + 20lbs less from tools and track stuff=about .2 off the ET).With more seat time,good track prep and conditions, I can probally get it to the high 12's.The vette will hopefully turn high-mid 11's with ideal track conditions.

Ok, ok, but i still think it's worth the effort to just do a little bit of mods on your Vette, just to be shure and all:smack :smack

Hey Evil,

First off, I want to say good job on the hard work you and your wife put in to have two bad ass cars. I want to say good job on having great taste in cars. That SRT-8 is a monster. The intake manifold on that 6.1 says it all. Does your SRT-8 have slotted rotors? I've seen a couple over at my Dodge store that did.

Thanks much for the compliments! no drilled rotors, wonder if they're a dealer option...this thing has every thing else. I think I'd worry about cracking a drilled rotor slowing this behemoth down...
