nice find... I was going to post that article... 6.1 owns the 4.6 stock for stock:rocker:i know its a chally not a charger but here ya go hope the link works
hemi rules :rocker: 600 lbs heavier n still .5 sec in the 1/4 and i think it said
5mph faster s well
high 13's stock srt... no... more like very low 13's, if not high 12's depending who's driving it:beerchug:
Fanboy much?I would say the 6.1 owns the 4.6 unless kenne is on top
Obviously the question is stock for stock because once you start adding mods in all bets are off.Fanboy much?
It doesn't take much for the 3V to run with a stock SRT8 (Tune (any tune but the FRPP one that comes with the Bullitt) and CAI). And it doesn't take much more to get it to "own" a stock 6.1. So it doesn't need a KB or any other FI to walk an SRT8.
Stock for stock, the SRT8 has nothing to worry about though.
AgreedThey could remake that movie now that we have both cars. I'd hate to see an SRT8 drive into a gas pump and explode, however. I also don't think anyone could do Bullitt better than Steve McQueen.
http://www.hottr6.com/triumph/BULLITT.htmlBalchowsky remembers "I hardly had to anything to the Dodge's engine, but what I was worried about was the strength of the front end." To shore up the front, Balchowsky revised the torsion bars, beefed up the control arms and added heavy duty shocks. As with the Mustang, all parts were 'fluxed. For the rear end, Balchowsky told us, "I got some special rear springs, what you call a high spring rate, a flat without any arch in it, and using that spring the car would stay low. It's similar to the same springs they use in police cars, which makes a good combination. When the police specify a package, they have more spring here, a little bigger brake there, a little bit more happening in the shocks, and it makes a good car. But the director of BULLITT wanted a brand new car instead of an ex-police car, so I got the springs from a friend at Chrysler. We had to weld reinforcements under the arms and stuff on the Dodge. We did lose a lot of hubcaps on the Charger. We'd put the hubcaps back on, but I suppose it probably would have been better if we had lest them off."
"I'll tell you this," said Max Balchowsky, "I was really impressed with the Mustang after I got done with it. I didn't think it'd make that much difference beefing it up. Later, we took both cars out and went playing around with them over by Griffith Park (near Los Angeles). The Dodge, which was practically stock, just left the Mustang like you wouldn't believe." Ron Riner has similar recollections. "The Charger ran rings around the Mustang. We trimmed the tires down (on the Charger), we practically made them down to bicycle tires to try and handicap Hickman, and Bill just run them." Carey Loftin also recalls," we test ran the car at Griffith Park near the Observatory, up a long hill. and if you can run a car real hard up and down that hill it's working pretty good."
Thing is, both cars are capable of running mid to high 13's stock.
Here is what you can compareThing is, both cars are capable of running mid to high 13's stock.
However, only the SRT8 is capable of 13.zero stock.
You can't just compare two unrelated data points and make assumptions (fastest ever Bullitt vs. slowest ever SRT8.... Hmmm, seems very close )
