    Nope,
    stopped our 6.1's in 2010,
    2011's are 392
    and Hellcat Challengers didn't start until 2015

    That's a 'keeper' for sure.

    I was definitely surprised at how fast I could get to 100 when I punch it while going 65. It’s very quick.

    * It's plenty fast; fast enough, and with all the highways clogged, there is no real use to have a larger hammer. The hemi motor is nothing more than an icon of the past, no offense to hemi owners. That motor has experienced numerous problems, just peruse any of the dodge forums. The 3.6 is a fleet motor, that is why I purchased. The VVT 6 is an established motor derived from the 3.5 with more air flow. The days of racing are really a bygone era whereas FCA is now planning on electric cars. What is treasure today, may actually be trash tomorrow.

    No. The Hellcat has a 6.2 supercharged engine. The 6.1 was the engine in the 2008-2010 SRT Challenger, before it was replaced by the 6.4 (392).

    I agree that electric cars are the future. However, some of the current Hemis may actually be worth more, as collector items, due to their rarity.

    * Seeing that your Srt does not have MDS, I certainly would "not" sell that. There have been some issues on new hemi timing chains, infuriating owners. You have a great car, "again, "Don't sell that one".

    I was not much aware or have forgotten those facts you pointed out. Would you know how many were produced in those years (6.1)?

    Who cares what they look like. You are racing, it’s like you are trying to win a beauty contest. . [​IMG]

    Could very well be, "At least the model you have", "'> 'NO' MDS.
