The engine is a 528 cubic inch HEMI with Indy heads built by Muscle Motors, the HEMI experts. Yes, that's right, 102 extra cubic inches were crammed into the already impressive HEMI V8. But as impressive as that sounds, it only gets better with the stunning Hilborn fuel injection system up top, complete with eight individual velocity stacks and managed by a Holley brain, so it starts quickly, idles evenly With close to 700 horsepower on tap, you know performance is, shall we say, entertaining.
Ceramic-coated long-tube headers that surely qualify as works of art handle the fumes, dumping them into a custom-fabricated 3-inch TTI exhaust system with X-pipe and Flowmasters and terminating in correct tips just under the rear bumper. It looks stock but sounds like a giant can of Whoop-Ass being opened. A Keisler/Tremec 5-speed manual transmission channels the torque aft and with a deep overdrive 5th gear, it keeps the HEMI loafing along at highway speeds, even with the 3.73 gears in the Dana 60 rear end. A full coil-over Alter-K-tion front suspension from Reilly Racing includes a tubular K-member, custom A-arms, and a fat sway bar to make this Charger dig in instead of rolling over. Out back, there's a Reilly Street Lynx setup with trailing arms and adjustable coil-overs that are a vast improvement over the stock leaf springs. Giant Wilwood discs live at all four corners with six-piston calipers grabbing each of the cross-drilled and slotted rotors. Controlled by a Hydro-Boost power assist and a billet master cylinder, there's enough braking power here to detach your retinas. Trick 2-piece Boze wheels were given a blackout treatment as well, and measure 19x8 up front and 20x10 in back and carry slick redline radials from Diamondback.
