Since I am home with a touch of food poisoning today I was watching SPEED. Hot Rod mag took a 2002 Dodge SWB and dropped in a crate 572CI HEMI motor in it. Said it was pushing out 600+ HP normally aspirated. 900CFM Holley, 11.5 compression,..... Stated that they would be doing some dyno and drag tests in the future.

That truck is way cool. Nice HEMI graphic on the side. I wish I knew what kind of exhaust it had. I'd put it on my 68.

Dodge has a VIPER powered pickup coming out this year as a 2003. It's called Dodge SRT-10. Engine will be the same as in the new Viper 8.3L/500 hp/500lbs of torque. Only trans available is a 6 speed. Should be exciting! This is going to be one wild and crazy year! Let the POWER BEGIN! :grin:

Time for my rant of the day...here goes...
Pickup truck frames flex like wet noodles under performance driving. Putting that kind of engine into a P/U is a waste.
I admire any kind of quality machinery, but I wish pickup trucks would stay on the farm and move out of the way of my Bullitt. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Anything with that much HEMI,will twist like a wet noodle!! My Mopar buddy has a similar setup in a Challenger and my problem is on any given Friday evening,he is sitting in the lane next to me,in my 85 LX,waiting for the tree to come down!!!

Seems like alot of people say the Bullitt is a waste, but we all drive one.
Wet noodle or not, I don't think you have to worry about a 600hp truck holding back your Bullitt.

I used to have a '68 SWB Ford pickup with a 429SCJ and all it would do is sit still and smoke the tires. It would only think about hooking up until you got past 40 mph.

It was fun to play with, but impractical as hell.

I was living in San Diego when I had it. No snow, but lots of sunshine. :smile:

I saw the same show. The one thing I did notice was that, when they were doing a burn-out, only one tire was spinning. Apparently, they did not order/install a limited slip. Now THAT is a waste (of 1 tire :smile:) to me.

I would love to have one of the Dodge trucks with the Viper V10 and 6 speed they are coming out with. I think they call it the SRT-10? I hear it does 0-60 in about 5 flat. Unfortunately, something tells me it will cost more than a Lightning.

From another posting I had on the SRT-10;

<TABLE BORDER=0 ALIGN=CENTER WIDTH=85%><TR><TD><font size=-1>Quote:</font><HR></TD></TR><TR><TD><FONT SIZE=-1><BLOCKQUOTE>
The April 2002 Hot Rod mag, page 70 states the SRT-10 will go for "45 large". Bet you can't get it for that cheap when they are released though. Also shows 500HP, 500TQE, 5000 Lbs, 0.9 lateral g's. 0-60 in 5 seconds, 12.9 in 1/4 @ 109 MPH and 0-100-0 in 18 seconds. Move out of the way Ford Lightning the bar has been raised considerably.

If you get this mag look on the next page for the new Neon, quickest car in the US for under $20K. 0-60 in 5.9 secs, top speed of 148. Oh, on page 66+ it shows the GT-40 going for $75k+.

Hey Donwil how do the #s figure? 12.9 in 1/4 @ 109 MPH and 0-100 in 18 seconds.Looks like it does 0-100 in less than 12.9 .Just curious. :???:

Beats me, I just wrote down what was in the magazine. As always, we can't necessarily trust what is in print.

Modded - 03-08-02. There was an additional 0. So it went from 0-100-0. Oops... Corrected the original post also.
