I've noticed lately that new generation vehicles are not being released with the drastic power and performance increases that used to be. An example is the bmw 3 series. The m3 since its inception...

So you nearly have to put the value of the car into mod expenses to match the power of a stock ss? I'm sure a turbo and rebuilt drive train is a great value.

I don't think there is much modding potential with 2.x liter engine unless you go turbo. If you want a second driving ride I'd recommend a c5 corvette or e46 m3, both can be had for 15k and destroy...

Ran 12.9 three times, it was my first time at the track with lots of wheelspin. Dodge thinks it s a good idea to put 245's on a 470hp car. Do you have any times?

I was still glad to run 12's out the box fully stock. Theses 392's should come with 295's, then the times would drastically drop.

I read on the srt forum a superbee ran 11.9 the other month with just tires on a stock tune. Def a beast. I wish the ss auto came with the Ls3 and proper gearing, then it may see much better times.
