Chrysler 300m 0-60 Test
(This time was achieved by manually shifting)
The Chrysler 300M:
The Chrysler 300M was produced from 1999 to 2004 after Chrysler's revival of the 300 name. Chrysler's goal of the 300M was to compete with similar sporty sedan imports which was a market not yet probed by other American auto makers. This time the 300 would be FWD with a 255 hp V6 engine car in the LH platform. This engine would be the only one available for the 300M. It was shared with the Plymouth Prowler and a limited edition R/T variant of the second-generation Dodge Intrepid. Rated at 253 HP, and 255 lb-ft of torque, it was connected to the 42LE, a four-speed automatic transmission with Autostick, which allowed manual selection of gears. The 300M was much more of a luxury car as opposed the older Chrysler letter cars.

(Limited: 111 mph)
If you watch the end of the video, you get to see us almost hit a truck
while driving at about 100 mph.

Limit Pushing - Tuned Charger R/T 0-60 Test
Definitely the coolest engine bay I've seen on a Charger.
The Dodge Charger LX:
The original Dodge Charger was introduces in 1964 as a concept car based on
the Dodge Polara, then a limited option for the Dart GT in 1965, and in
1966 the Charger became its own car for the Dodge line up. Dodged continued
to make the Charger until 1987 when Chrysler pulled the plug on the Charger
line. In 1999, Dodge introduced a new Charger R/T concept car that included
four doors and a proposed use of compressed natural gas for fuel. Finally,
after 19 years of waiting, the Dodge Charger LX was introduced in 2005 for
the 2006 model year. The Charger LX was created to continue the Dodge
Charger line, and replaced the Intrepid as Dodge's sedan. It shares a
platform with the Chrysler 300, the third generation Dodge Challenger, and
the Dodge Magnum. The new Charger came in the variants SE and SXT with
Chrysler's 250 hp 3.5 V6, the R/T version which made use of the 340 hp 5.7
L Hemi V8, and the SRT-8 model powered by the 425 hp 6.1 L Hemi V8. The
Charger came in two other variants known as the Daytona R/T, which was
decorated with retro decals and sported a higher output 350 hp (368 hp as
of 2009) 5.7 L hemi, and the Super Bee SRT8 that came painted in "Detonator
Yellow" and decorated with "Super Bee" decals.
Limit Pushing - Turbo LS2 GTO Base Line Dyno Test
We're back! Sorry to keep you all waiting, but life has been a bit busy.
Our turbo LS2 GTO has been around for a
while now running on a simple street tune. We will get a more efficient
tune on the Dyno soon,
but until then, we wanted to see what kind of numbers it could put down.
Turns out it makes quite a bit over stock, but there will be more to come.
Our more expert audience will most likely notice the odd power curve. This
is a result of the timing being pulled to promote the longevity of the
engine before a Dyno
tune could be performed.
The Pontiac GTO:
The Pontiac GTO was built by Pontiac Division of General Motors in the
United States from 1964 to 1974, and by GM subsidiary Holden in Australia
from 2004 to 2006 as the Holden Monaro. It is considered to be one of the
most innovative classic muscle cars of the 1960s and 1970s. The GTO came at
a time when General Motors had banned the divisions from involvement in
auto racing. At the time, Pontiac's marketing was heavily based on
performance. This change in GM's policy forced Pontiac to turn its
attention to street performance.
The GTO was born from a redesign of the Tempest which was to be called the
"Super Tempest" with the larger 6.4 L Pontiac V8 engine from the full-sized
Pontiac Catalina and Bonneville in place of the standard 5.3 L Tempest V8.
The big-engine Tempest was badged the GTO for "Gran Turismo Omologato"
after the Ferrari 250 GTO. The GTO escaped the violation of GM policy by
becoming an option package for the Pontiac Tempest LeMans. The GTO package
had sold 10,000 units before the beginning of 1964 followed by total sales
of 32,450 GTOs. 75,342 were sold by 1965. This optional $ 296 package
included a 6.4 L V8 that produced 348 hp with a single Carter AFB
four-barrel carburetor and dual Exhaust, chromed valve covers and air cleaner, 7
blade clutch fan, a floor-shifted three-speed manual transmission with
Hurst shifter, stiffer springs, larger diameter front sway bar, wider
wheels with 7.50 x 14 redline tires, hood scoops, and GTO badges. The
original GTO's was clocked about 5.6 seconds for the 0--60 test and a
standing quarter mile time of 14.8 seconds.
As time went on, sales increased to almost 100,000 GTOs a year. Pontiac
pushed for the GTO to be called the "GTO Tiger" in advertising, but it
eventually became known in the youth market as the "Goat." The late 60's
saw the creation of the ram air engines and the birth of the Judge. Power
increased over the 60's from 348 hp to 375 hp in the best ram air
applications. The best equipped GTOs could get from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds
and perform a standing quarter mile in 11.5 seconds.
As the 70's rolled in, sales of the GTO plummeted. By 1973 GTO sales were
down to 4,806 cars and the energy crisis was beginning to emerge. In 1974
Pontiac moved the GTO option to the compact Pontiac Ventura, also known as
the Chevrolet Nova. This was done in an effort to become part of the
compact muscle market which already included the Plymouth Duster 360, Ford
Maverick Grabber and AMC Hornet X. The 1974 GTO was tested a with the
four-speed transmission and achieved a 0-60 time of 7.7 seconds and a
quarter mile at 15.72 seconds. Sales improved in 74 to over 7,000 cars, but
1974 would be the last model year for the original GTO.
In 1999, the Detroit Auto Show beheld a GTO concept car. The 1999 concept
was never produced but in 2004 Pontiac re-launched the GTO under the
Holden Monoro platform. The new GTO was equipped with the Corvette's 350 hp
LS1 engine in 2004 and the 400 hp LS2 engine for 2005 and 2006 with a
choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. The GTO was
sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Monaro and in the Middle East as a Chevrolet
Lumina SS. The new GTO was never as popular in the U.S. due to the styling
which was obviously not aimed towards GTO heritage or the car's performance
(even with GM's frantic decision to add sporty hood scoops), and GM's
failure to use a traditional American built car. The 2005 and 2006 models
were virtually the same mechanically. Both made good use of the 400 hp LS2
engine and could go from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds and could execute a standing
quarter mile in 13 seconds. The 2006 model drew the GTO to a close once
again with the end of GM's 3 year GTO revival plan.
Limit Pushing - Chrysler 300C Hemi 0-60 Test
5.9 is the rated 0-60 on the 2005 300C, so we were pleased when we got six
flat on the almost four year old car.
The 300C comes with a 5.7 L Hemi V8. At full power, the 300C creates 340 hp
and 390 lbs of torque. This engine runs on four cylinders when less power
is needed to reduce fuel consumption. Even with this energy saving mode,
the 300C runs at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway. All 300Cs use a 5-speed
automatic transmission and standard 18 inch chrome-clad alloy wheels.
The Heritage Edition 300C comes with the 5.7 L Hemi engine and many of the
SRT-8's exterior modification, added chrome, special tires on 18 inch
wheels, and SmartBeam headlights.
Special SRT Packages:
In 2007 the SRT Design group created a package for non-SRT 300C's that
includes performance suspension, SRT 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, a
high speed engine controller with revised tuning for 5.7 L HEMI that brings
the power to 350 HP, high flow air cleaner system, and performance Exhaust.
The SRT-8 version of the 300 includes a 6.1 L Hemi V8 which produces 425
hp. This engine produces 0-60 mph times of 5.1 seconds. The SRT-8 includes
leather SRT-8 performance seats, 20 inch polished aluminum wheels, Brembo
brakes, and rear lip spoiler.

These engines are not bad. They are like every other engine just people
don't replaced Waterpumps when they should be.. and a lot of people
mis-diagnose or ignore the defect on these cars.
