The HEMI responds well to headers, and a mild cam could get you into the 400's ( both h.p. and torque) look out SRT-8 owners :whistle:

Yeah but I have my weekend toy so I feel no need to extremely hop up the SRT-8. If I am feelin saucy I will just go get the toy and beat the tar out of stuff rather then spend tons of money on the daily driver.........now this isn't to say that I will not tint the windows and perhaps get headers, a different exhaust, and an intake for the SRT-8 if they become available but I don't see the need to go nuts with performance mods on a factory muscle car.

I wonder if any tuning will be required after installing the cam....

According to comp cams, no!
cams link
Three different camshaft combinations net power increases up to 61 HP COMP Cams? New XFI? (Xtreme Fuel Injection) camshafts for Hemi-powered Chrysler vehicles dramatically increase engine horsepower and torque, yet retain compatibility with all OEM vehicle computer systems. Available in three different profiles (XFI 260, 268 and 273); the new camshafts are application-specific with designs for street performance and towing.

go troll elsewhere,
this is the CRATE engine, not the same setup that comes in the Charger R/T... or ANY vehicle.

What does YOUR (ie, the one you OWN) car run the 1/4 in?

Seriously...:rolleyes:

I mean, how does an engine alone run 14s in the quarter?? Do you just set the crate down at the staging lights and hope it'll go for it? :lol:

you don't need much power to make a go-cart go fast.
It takes a lot if your pushing something of substance!
