I guess I must be the average "joe", because I definately prefer the 300C/Charger SRT-8 over the 2k+ Bonneville.
One might EXPECT 425hp out of a 6.1L V8, if that'* your standard, the L36 (because it'* not supercharged...) SHOULD be making about 265hp/261lb-ft at the crank. The blower changes a lot in terms of displacement vs. power.
Including the cost of a new car, how much would it cost to get an SSEi into the 12 second range? $30k for the car... and add quite a bit more for the mods and making the car RELIABLE.
You also get a warranty
on the SRT-8. Something that a modded 3800 won't have.
I'll happily push that 6.1L V8 to the rear
wheels before I plunk down lotsa money on a 3800 whilst its still FWD, thanks.
