Street Hits – Mustang GT vs. Challenger SRT

September 25th, 2019

Whoa! This guy has got some kind of attitude. Sure, he has a nice car and it has been reasonably modified, but take on an SRT Dodge Challenger in a Mustang GT? The Mustang sounds good but claims only an assortment of bolt-ons. Let’s see what’s up.

First, the 2017 Mustang GT (5.0-liter V8). It has been treated to a Roush exhaust system which yields a throaty rumble, indeed. The Kooks exhaust headers add to the sound effects. The intake manifold is a ported unit from a 2018 version of the same car. Cool exterior air is drawn in via an Air Raid cold air intake and Palm Beach Dyno handles the tuning duties. All-in-all, this is a quick car with minimal modification.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT is basically a naturally aspirated variant of the Hellcat. Under the hood is a 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI V8 engine. It has only two modifications; a Hellcat air box (cols air intake) and a muffler delete (straight-pipe).

Get ready for multiple hits (40 mph roll) from two of the closest matched cars that you will ever see. Each time, these two pull alongside one another and run that way throughout. It is uncanny. If anybody asks, all this action took pace south of the border.
