Owners of the 2008-2010MY Dodge Challenger will be relieved to know that their cars aren’t going to be left out on the tuning arms race of later year models after noted tuning firm Lingenfelter announced a performance package for these specific Challenger models. Breath easy now, folks.
The supercharger package for the Challenger will include a Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger in black powdercoat finish, a 160-degree thermostat, upgraded fuel injectors, and a high-flow intake system.
Lingenfelter’s Dodge Challenger Supercharger Package will be available for the HEMI 5.7-liter and 6.1-liter engines and according to Lingenfelter, tests done on the 6.1-liter HEMI engine produced 500 rear-wheel horsepower and 450 lb/ft of torque.
“Our engineering specialists are able to tune today’s Challengers to deliver increased performance, as demonstrated when the Lingenfelter 6.1L Challenger recently ran a best of 12.03-seconds at 120 mph at the Muncie Dragway in Indiana," said Ken Lingenfelter, owner of Lingenfelter.
"With more than 30 years of expertise in fine-tuning engines, we have the capabilities to give auto enthusiasts more speed, greater power and enhanced overall performance."
All three items Lingenfelter pointed out are covered in their new supercharger package for the Dodge Challenger, which should become a boon for all owners of the car looking to add more juice to their shakers.
