Go for a Spin in a 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A with 340 Sixpack Engine and 320hp
http://www.rpmcollection.com Steve Cage shows you his awesome 1970 Dodge Challenger T/A 340 "Six Pack" muscle car in "Top Banana" yellow. The slapstick transmission function is used only for upshifts. You manually put it into first gear. As you accelerate - and the rpms are where you want it - you just slap the shift lever to the right. In order to race in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship, Dodge built the Dodge Challenger T/A (Trans Am). The 340 engine added a trio of two-barrel carburetors on top of an Edelbrock intake manifold, creating the "340 Six Pack". horsepower was about 320 hp. The engine breathed air through a suitcase sized air scoop molded into the fiberglass hood. Dual Exhausts ran to the stock muffler location under the trunk, then reversed direction to exit in chrome outlets in front of the rear wheels.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon DRIVE
2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon: Dragster’s Dream. 0-60 in 2.3 seconds, 9.65-second quarter-mile at 140 mph, and 3-foot wheelies. Well, after one of the most drawn-out premiere's in recent memory, the covers have officially been taken off the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon at the New York Auto Show. Based around the Challenger SRT Hellcat, the Demon has undergone a comprehensive suite of modifications and Dodge claims that it is the world’s quickest accelerating production car and the fastest quarter-mile production car on the market. Power from the company’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine has been bumped from 707 hp in Hellcat-spec to 840 hp for the Demon. This power Boost has been achieved with the installation of a larger, 2.7-liter Supercharger, Boost pressure rising from 14.5 psi to 11.6 psi, new pistons, rods and valve train being installed and the implementation of two dual-stage fuel pumps. Further engine upgrades include lifting the rev limit from 6,200 rpm to 6,500 rpm, strengthening the connecting rods and incorporating three sources of intake air (the hood, driver-side headlamp and an inlet near the wheel liner). What this amounts to is truly phenomenal straight-line performance. Zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) passes in just 2.3 seconds, the quarter-mile can be achieved in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph (225 km/h) and the Demon holds the Guinness World Record for first-ever front-wheel lift in a production car. What’s more, the Demon’s 1.8 g of acceleration is the highest of any production car. Things don’t stop here. The Challenger SRT Demon is the first street-legal production car that can run 100+ unleaded high-octane fuel to offer maximum performance. Typically, the Demon leaves the factory tuned for 91-octane fuel but the so-called ‘Demon Crate’ includes a new powertrain control module that unleashes the full 840 hp. Like the Hellcat, the Demon includes two key fobs, one which limits power to 500 hp and a second, finished in red, that unleashes 808 hp on regular pump gas and then 840 hp when combined with the control module. Working alongside the beefed-up engine is an updated TorqueFlite 8HP90 eight-speed automatic transmission. It includes an upgraded torque converter that delivers an 18 per cent increase in torque multiplication that works in conjunction with TransBrake. This system locks the transmission output shaft to hold the Demon in place before a standing start, allowing the engine speed to be increased to 2,350 rpm for the perfect launch. Thanks to the street-legal Nitto drag radials as well, launch force is up by 40 per cent over the Hellcat. As we already knew, the Demon is more than 200 pounds lighter than the Hellcat. These weight savings have been achieved by removing the front passenger seat, rear seat, 16 speakers, the use of hollow sway bars, lightweight aluminium brake calipers and the removal of a host of wiring. For customers that want the passenger seat and rear seats included, both can be optioned back for $1 each. Speaking about the car, Dodge’s Tim Kuniskis said “With Demon, our goal was to build a car that would tattoo the Dodge logo into the subconscious of the general market, beyond even our loyal enthusiasts. To do so, we had to set records that have never been set before, do more than has ever been done before, go beyond even the legendary Hellcat. The result: an 840-horsepower, 9-second muscle car unlike anything that has ever come before it.” Production of the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will commence this summer with just 3,000 units destined for the United States and 300 heading to Canada. Pricing has yet to be announced.





1972 Plymouth GTX / Roadrunner Vs. 1994 Impalla SS with 20's
This video was to prove that a 318 can be made to make power under low budget applications. Although the block was re-sleeved to except 340 pistons, the engine had a 780 Holley installed after this video and we gained approx 25-35% more HP but we were always messing with the carb, the edelbrock might seem like a small carb for 625cfm but it works well...This is just one of those engines that has response and does not hold back, amazes everyone in our group and people who attempt a take down of this mopar. This is no means the fastest car ever...but it holds its own and i am having fun.
