And while one of their most iconic models – the Dodge Viper – was retired a few years ago, Dodge wants to make up for it, by reviving an old performance program. It’s called Direct Connection and here’s what you can expect from it.

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Is This 2JZ-Swapped Dodge Charger The Ultimate Act Of Sacrilege?

Mike Finnegan from Roadkill has put a 2JZ GTE in a 1968 Dodge Charger. It’s one of the most outrageous builds ever done

We are all familiar with the tuning potential of the 2JZ engine, which makes it one of the more popular engine swaps. That said, there are certain boundaries one should not be crossing. This is exactly what Mike Finnegan, from Finnegan’s Garage YouTube channel, did, as he took the rustiest 1968 Dodge Charger and put a 2JZ GTE engine in it. While it’s up for debate whether that’s worse than putting an LS into it (at least it’s a V-8) some MOPAR fans are sure to blow a fuse or two over Finnegan’s build.

What has the world come to? Just a decade ago, you wouldn’t think much of pick-up trucks in terms of straight-line acceleration. Sure, we’ve had things like the Ford Lightning or the GMC Syclone, but nowadays, you can buy a pick-up truck with well-over 600 and even 700 horsepower out the box. On today’s drag racing video from Sam CarLegion, we have a RAM 1500 TRX going up against a Ford F-150 Roush. The goal is simple – to find out who’s quicker at the quarter-mile.

This 6-second Dodge Viper GTS generates over 3,000 Horsepower and is road-legal

Until about a decade ago, when it came to high-horsepower builds, it was pretty much the Chevrolet LS engines, with the occasional 2JZ or RB26 builds making an appearance. Nowadays, people have started noticing the Viper V-10 as the next platform capable of massive horsepower figures. With this in mind, “That Racing Channel” is giving us an inspiring YouTube video that gives the story behind the “six-second kid” and his 1999 Dodge Viper GTS that makes 3,200 horsepower.

2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock HPE1000 by Hennessey

2021 Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock HPE1000 by Hennessey

With the HPE1000 package, the Challenger Super Stock makes 110 horses and 84 pound-feet of torque more than the standard model on the dyno

Dodge unveiled a special-edition model of the Challenger Redeye Widebody last year called the Challenger Super Stock. The car comes with the famous 6.2-liter, V-8 supercharged HEMI engine that churns out over 800 horses. Hennessey brought this car over to its factory and equipped it with its HPE1000 Performance Upgrade package. The result? 1,000+ horses on paper, but around 800 horses on the dyno. In Hennessey’s defense, it is still more than the Challenger Super Stock’s dyno figures.

There’s nothing smooth or appeasing about this new package from Hennessey

Hennessey Performance’s new engine upgrade package for the Challenger Demon raises the muscle car’s output to 1,200 horsepower.

Hennessey put its crown jewel Challenger Demon program to the test, and as you’d expect it, “mercy” wasn’t in the muscle car’s vocabulary.

Watch A 2,600-HP Dodge Viper Destroy The Half Mile: Video

Watch A 2,600-HP Dodge Viper Destroy The Half Mile: Video

A few snakes with some serious bite

Following a brief production hiatus between 2010 and 2012, Dodge finally discontinued the Viper in 2017. Despite its newly limited status, there are plenty of enthusiasts out there that continue to use theirs as intended, blasting around race tracks and down drag strips with all ten cylinders at full song. Some even take a wrench to it and pump up the output levels to crazy new heights, adding in the boost to achieve four-digit horsepower levels and simply insane acceleration numbers. Such is the case for the two mad machines featured in this 12-and-a-half-minute bit from 1320 Video.

Kicking things off is a red example from Calvo Motorsports, as piloted by shop owner Antonio Calvo. Right off the trailer, this crazy two-door tops out at 221 mph by the end of its half-mile airstrip run, all thanks to the 2,600 horsepower and 2,200 pound-feet of torque it makes at the rear wheels. Following it up is a more streetable version rocking a white paint job and Calvo Motorsport’s TT package. Of course, we say “streetable,” but the white Viper is still producing as much as 2,100 horses at the wheels. Hey, at least it still runs an H-pattern gearbox!

Full Powertrain Spec Sheet For Challenger SRT Demon Revealed, We Compare It To The Hellcat

Full Powertrain Spec Sheet For Challenger SRT Demon Revealed, We Compare It To The Hellcat

Pinning a few numbers to the new drag race king

When Dodge pulled the sheets on the utterly insane Challenger SRT Demon back in April at the 2017 New York International Auto Show, months of speculation finally collided with reality, and the result was one of the most badass factory drag racers ever unleashed. The headline specs on the Demon beg belief, with nearly 850 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque sent to the rear axle thanks to a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. Stuffing the engine is a 2.7-liter supercharger producing 14.5 psi of boost, which prompts at 2.3-second sprint in the 60-mph benchmark. Keep your foot down, and you’ll see the quarter mile blitzed in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph. Insanity. Now, Dodge has a full rundown on hard numbers to document that craziness with the release of the Demon’s powertrain spec sheet.

You can check out the attached press release for all the nitty gritty details, but in the meantime, here are a few highlights. For starters, Dodge says the V-8 engine manages to swallow as much as 173 cubic feet of air during a full-throttle quarter-mile run, which is roughly the same volume as the lung capacity of 816 humans. During a hard launch, the Nitto cheater slicks produce upwards of 1.8 g’s of forward acceleration, enough to lift the nose of the car off the ground for a fronts-up wheelie off the line. There’s plenty of other details as well, so read on if you wanna get nerdy with it as we compare it the “standard” Hellcat.

Bank Your Soul, Dodge Prices Challenger SRT Demon At $84,995

Bank Your Soul, Dodge Prices Challenger SRT Demon At $84,995

The option list is filled with $1 extras

In case you missed our in-depth coverage of the Dodge Demon debut last month, here are the highlights: highest horsepower production V-8 ever, first production car capable of doing wheelies, fastest production car in the quarter mile (9.65 seconds at 140 mph), fastest production car 0-to-60 mph time (2.3 seconds), and highest g-force acceleration for a production car (1.8 g). Not too shabby, eh? If that list of achievements sounds like the sorta thing you want in your garage, now’s your chance, as Dodge has officially announced an MSRP for the Demon. Pricing starts at $84,995, which includes a $1,700 gas guzzler tax, but excludes a $1,095 destination charge. Compare that to the “standard” Hellcat’s MSRP of $64,195, and you’re looking at an extra $20,000 to get your hands on a Demon.

“Eighty-five thousand dollars is not just a number in a business case to Dodge,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars at Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and Fiat, FCA North America. “We know it’s a lot of money and a significant up-charge over a Challenger Hellcat. We worked very hard to build as much value into the Challenger SRT Demon as possible – features, performance and exclusivity that simply can’t be duplicated with a goal of maintaining, and possibly even growing, as much future value as possible.” Fair enough. But beyond the insane power and impressive performance, what do you get for the money? Read on for the details.
