|Internals will be highly upgraded, as well as the remainder of the drivetrain to handle the horsepower/torque requirements. Direct Injection and other measures will be applied to deliver MPG|
|I just don't see getting an 600hp SRT8 of any kind for under 60K when the Viper only has 40 more horses.|
|I guess my dilema is to keep my 2012 Superbee and Supercharge it for $6500 parts + $2000 for labor and have a 6.4L with 650 HP, or trade in me car - lose 10k on it's value and spend $60k on a 6.2L 2014 supercharged. Damn, I only have 500 miles on it.|
this i like - i wish they would have done this sooner. one of the really nice things about the top model mustangs is their forged parts that make adding power boosters much more user friendly (stock bottom end is good for like 1k+ HP or something). to upgrade the 6-10 charger you would first have to upgrade a lot of the "bottom" end components to forged parts to handle the extra power - whereas Ford comes with those capabilities already built in....
no, i wasn't aware the 6.4 had a fully forged bottom end. i know the 6.1's would need a considerable amount of upgrades before going too much over 500 WHP (Crank, Pistons, Push-Rods, etc...). i'm looking at spending close to 10k on a SC in the very near future. unfortunately, with the stock configuration i won't be able to go much over 10 Lbs because of those non-forged parts. and, while (just under) 10k is doable after a deployment, 15k (to upgrade the afore mentioned components so i can add more boost) is not doable.
question: if i can manage 500 HP (at the wheels) with 10 PSI boost, is it recommended to upgrade to a 3" exhaust? or would the stock 2.75 still be the best option? i know 1-2 folks with a SC'ed stock 6.1 (8-10 lbs)....did you keep the stock exhuast?
