1970 Dodge Challenger with a 8.3 liter V10 from a Dodge Viper backed by a 6 speed Tremec and a dual disc clutch.
This thing sounds extremely aggressive with the help from Borla ATAK mufflers exiting out the rear of the car.

The front end is an aftermarket subframe that was modified to fit the big 8.3L Viper V10, along with tubular upper
& lower control arms, fully adjustable coilovers, power rack and pinion steering, and 6 piston Wilwood disc brakes.

A custom driveshaft connects the transmission to the fully independent rear suspension.

The rear end of the car is totally custom fabricated. The frame rails that come up along the inner wheel wells were
replaced with a custom-built tubular chassis to accept the rear subframe from a 392 SRT8 Challenger. So now, the
completely independent rear end (suspension, differential, & brakes) from an SRT8 Challenger bolts right into a
1970 Challenger and you have a car that can drive and handle great. It also has coilovers in the rear and the
Brembo disc brakes that came on the SRT. The front and rear subframes are connected by square tubing to stiffen the
body for added stability and strength to help handle the power.

The body looks great in midnight black paint but does have imperfections from age and use, but it hasn't been built
up as a show car. Rear inner wheel openings were trimmed to fit larger tires on 20" wheels. Has a T/A hood and rear
spoiler. The vinyl gator top is original to the car and in good shape. The floors are also in good shape and the
trunk pan is new. Black interior is clean and it has a pistol grip shifter to control the Tremec 6 speed
transmission.

List of items I think need done before it is a ready to enjoy rod:
Install new steering column, wiring harness, dash, and gauges.
Install a brake booster.
Replace clutch master/slave cylinder setup.

What's the deal with Chrysler demanding colleges crush their Vipers? [w/video]

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 13:30:00 EST

Students and teachers at a Washington community college are up in arms following an order from Chrysler that it must destroy the pre-production Dodge Viper that was donated to the school's automotive technology program ten years ago.
The Viper in question is said to be the fourth off the production line, based on its VIN, and has had its emissions controls disabled, allowing its ten-cylinder engine to produce 600 horsepower, according to a report from Yahoo! Autos. As one of the first Vipers ever produced, the school's AT instructors claim it could be worth $250,000 in a museum, while a local news report purports that Jay Leno once tried to purchase the car, but the sale was prevented by Chrysler.
As pointed out by our friends at Autobytel, though, there are a lot of things in this story that don't quite add up. Immediately noticeable from the news report embedded below - which shows the car at South Puget Sound Community College - is that the car in question is not a 1992 model. When the Viper went on sale in 1992, it was only available as an RT/10 with a (flimsy) soft top, like the red car shown above. But the car featured in the report from KING5 News (inset image) is clearly a hardtop Viper GTS, which didn't enter production until 1996. And even if, as reported by a local newspaper, the hardtop featured is a prototype, it doesn't explain the lack of another iconic feature of the first Vipers - their distinctive side pipes. This kind of pokes holes in the school's argument that this is the fourth Viper to ever roll down the line. At best, this appears to be a pre-production Viper GTS.

NHTSA investigating power modules on Chrysler Group SUVs and minivans

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 11:02:00 EST

The Center for Auto Safety is officially petitioning the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to begin scrutinizing alleged problems with the totally integrated power module (TIPM) on about 24 Chrysler Group SUVs and minivans. The advocacy group claims that the part's failure can cause affected vehicles to stall or not start at all. NHTSA is still looking into the accusations and deciding whether a full investigation is actually warranted.
The CAS petition claims at least 70 TIPM failures, but according to NHTSA, six of the complaints are for models that don't have the modules. In 34 of the reported cases, the vehicles refused to start, and in 17 of them the engine stalled. There were also two allegations of smoke and one of a fire. However, none of these affected airbag deployment or resulted in a crash.
This petition isn't the first TIPM-related problem for Chrysler Group. A recent report in the New York Times alleged that it found 240 complaints potentially related to the issue on NHTSA's website alone. In September, the automaker also recalled 230,760 examples worldwide (188,723 in the US) of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango replace the fuel pump relay circuit inside of the TIPM-7 with one external to the unit. The original part could allegedly cause the models to stall without warning. Even earlier, the company also recalled about 80,000 examples of the Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Nitro in 2007 to have the module reprogrammed.

2013 Dodge Challenger R/T hits the Redline

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 16:58:00 EST

Dodge has added a bit of spice to its Hemi-powered Challenger for 2013, offering up this new Redline package that makes its official debut at the Chicago Auto Show. The R/T Redline builds on the Rallye Redline kit that was created for the V6 Challenger, and we like how these subtle changes add to the muscle coupe's already classic styling.
In addition to the black chrome 20-inch wheels with red accents, the R/T Redline adds subtle graphics along the beltline. Inside, cars equipped with the six-speed manual transmission get a performance tuned exhaust that allows the engine to send a full 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. (Redline Challengers with the five-speed automatic produce 372 hp and 400 lb-ft.)
The Redline package retails for $1,995 and can be had on both Challenger R/T and R/T Plus models. Scroll down for the full press blast.
