    Yeah it's all true. No return for the investment and you gotta go in knowing that. I plan on keeping the car until I can't drive it no more. I don't put many miles a year on it. It's definitely a sickness. I do plan to drag it eventually but not until it's strong enough to handle the power constantly. For now, periodic roll races online. Don't plan on doing digs in it.

    no, just need the beefy axles for that much HP. I want to say they can be used with the stock rear end , unless you get the getrag rear. then you will see the difference in the gear change.

    The 5.7 Liters are tougher than most people think but adding a supercharger can put some increased wear on the engine. I highly recommend an Edelbrock E-force Supercharger.

    When referencing a 2019 scat, I would like to see another item in the details; is it a narrow body or wide body? Based on new specs, there is quite a bit difference between the 2019 narrow and wide body scat pack.

    Yes, narrow body. The biggest difference is the tire size. I've got 275/40/20 on my rates currently I have stock 245s on the front.

    In the Wide body: 3.09 Rear Axle Ratio, Hello Cat Wheels, Adaptive Damping Suspension, Standard 6 piston Brembo's, Widebody Competition Suspension. I believe these are the major differences, a little bit more than just tires? However, I am new to the Challenger world so please correct me if I am mistaken.

    In city driving my 392 T/A is more than enough for the occasional thrill. (Makes the wife grin every time I stomp it) But unless you are wanting to race regularly (at the track) it seems like an unnecessary large expenditure followed by likely expensive repairs. But, everybody has there own dream to follow and I have other toys to buy other than my T/A.

    I believe the majority of those things mentioned are on the 1320 not the wide body. I could be wrong. I do know the tires/ wheels are bigger. There are other upgrades I'm sure but I don't believe it's as many things as you mentioned. Those differences come with the 1320 scat

    Jason Lessler: What I mentioned is part and not all of the $6,000 wide body package. I just copied those specs right from my window sticker. They did let me test drive the 1320, nice ride, a bit more savage than a wide body scat.
