Dodge Challenger Performance

The very first Dodge Challenger came out in the early 70's as Dodge's answer to the Camaro and the Mustang. Once again now that we have seen the comeback of Camaros and Mustangs so too has the Challenger come back to rule the streets once again. This time the third generation of the Dodge Challenger is knocking some heads and taking names. It wasn't built for gas mileage; it was built to be the biggest, baddest and the toughest Pony car on the road. They definitely did not pull any punches when developing the new Dodge Challenger, 0-100 mph in less than 13 seconds. But as in all stock vehicles there are the aftermarket upgrades that could push the Challenger over the top of all the rest.

Finally the last basic mod that I would look in to getting is a performance chip or tuner. They are very easy to install with a total of ten minutes or less and then you are out playing. The Diablo sport predator is an excellent option for a tuner. The Diablo Sport Predator will give about 20 more horses at the rear wheels and 20 ft/lbs of torque, also gaining 1-3 mpg, once again as long as you aren't trying to win Indy. There you have it, three simple ways to improve the performance of the Dodge Challenger. Probably the best thing of all though is that when the different modifications are used together, they work together, and you end up getting bigger gains out of each item. So instead of being 20 plus 20 plus 25 equals 65, it ends up being more like 75 or 80. Now it's time to have some fun.
