For those about to rock, we salute you! If you are a power junky the new Dodge Challenger packs more than enough punch. The Challenger SE is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 with 250 hp and 250 pound-feet of torque. The only transmission for the SE is a four-speed automatic. The R/T sports a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that makes 370 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque. It comes mated to a five-speed automatic, with a six-speed manual available — with the latter gearbox, the 5.7 makes 5 more hp. The SRT8 comes with a 6.1-liter V8 packing 425 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, with transmission choices mirroring those of the R/T. Dodge claims the R/T will rocket to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds. Although there have been rumors of people timing it at 5.1 seconds. For the size of this beast that is fast, for that matter it is fast for any car.
Just because the Dodge Challenger comes with more than enough power, why stop with being the same. Want to turn your SE Challenger into the best sounding V6 on the road? Look into upgrading the exhaust system to an MBRP Dodge Challenger Exhaust. This exhaust system averages some of the highest gains in Dodge Challenger performance on the market. MBRP promises you that you will not go unimpressed with the power gains, torque gains and the sweet sound of muscle. You will also be impressed with the way it looks when you walk out of your house and you can see the shining tips of the MBRP Exhaust.
The Dodge Challenger as you have read already has some pretty impressive numbers as far as performance goes but you can do better than that. The MBRP Dodge Challenger Exhaust System gives 20 extra horses at the rear wheels, an extra 12 ft/lbs of torque on the 3.5L V6 and 24 hp and 20 foot pounds of torque on the the 5.7L. Even more impressive is the 29 horsepower and 25 torque of the 6.1L SRT-8 model. They even offer a possible 1-3 mpg for those who can control that lead foot. All of these specs are a vast improvement and give you better gains than most anything else out there that we’ve seen.
Don’t worry about installing the MBRP Exhaust for the Dodge Challenger. MBRP has made the installation as simple as possible with most of it being bolt on parts. Also included in the kit is everything needed to attach it minus the tools and the tools that are needed are just your basic everyday tools that most people already have. And then there is always your local body and muffler shops that could be available if you really wanted.
The MBRP Exhaust for the Dodge Challenger comes with a lifetime warranty and won’t void the manufacturers warranty from Dodge. It uses the stock catalytic converters so the dealerships are fine with the upgraded exhaust. They also come in a polished mirror finish that looks great and won’t rust because it is made in a 2.5″ diameter exhaust made of T-409 or T-304 stainless steel on the V6 and 3″ diameter T-409 or T-304 stainless steel on the V8 models. We love the gains that the MBRP Dodge Challenger Exhaust gives. Enjoy the ride if you haven’t already people.
