  1. RPM & speedometer crazy after new engine install

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    I'll try to sum up the events without going into too much detail. My brother's best friend blew the engine on my 2007 charger and I had to get a new one. He dropped it in for me but I decided I wasn't comfortable with his 'knowledge' of engines to finish do the wiring. Bought 2008 Chrysler...
  2. Can you put a Hellcat Engine in a 2011 Charger with the 5.7 hemi?

    Performance Discussion/Modifications (2011 +)
    Hey So I have this idea about putting a Hellcat engine in my 2011 Charger. I have a 5.7 hemi in it now. Is it possible to put the Hellcat in a 2011? I know they make crate engines for 2015 and up. If it is possible, is there more I would have to do than swap the engine? Like exhaust, headers...

    Hello all, I got my 2018 Charger GT last week and I love how it looks and feels so far! However I think I might have ****ed up while driving it today.

    I am looking to buy a 2006 Charger R/T from a buddy after much deliberation. Have been researching various maintenance issues and he has taken good care of the car. However, I have seen a lot of discussion and concern over the valve seat failing and causing a lot of engine damage. So, two...

    Performance Discussion/Modifications
    Hey guys, so my grandfather bought a 2009 2.7L SE Charger (he was 86 at the time). In 2014, he passed it on to me. He passed away back in December, and since then, I've decided that I want to drastically improve the car as something of a tribute to him. I have a rough outline of some sort of...

    So I think I found my car today at the dealer. It's a 14 Billet silver R/T with 60 miles on it. Everything checked out as I was looking at it, but when I popped the hood and looked at the engine I noticed in the middle there was some rust on it. Is this a problem? Is it just cosmetic and...

  13. Engine swap

    V6 Specific Discussion
    Hi guys, I've got an 06 3.5L with about 100k and I'd love to do an engine swap. First car when purchased new, so it's got some sentimental value, plus Magnesium color is unique enough I feel the car is worth hanging on to. Totally paid off, so makes sense to upgrade for me versus buying a new...

    My 2006 Charger RT (142,000 mi) has seen many great days on the road. Today is not one of them. Last week my car's Nav radio blanked while locking the FM channels, then switched to blanking the instrument panel, losing AC and finally failing to start at all. The dodge dealer says my wiring...

  16. 3.5 Engine Tick Only While Accelerating???

    Charger Problems/Assistance
    I have a 2007 3.5 SE with 108,000 miles. I’ve been reading a lot of other posts that 3.5’s have a common ticking problem related to bad rocker arm assemblies/ lifters. However, from what I understand, the ticking usually occurs during startup and typically goes away after the engine warms up...
