Viper engine swaps are out and 392 or Hellcat swaps are in. Have you though about changing engines?


Why are you raining on his superbowl?  Are you seriously suggesting he bends to peer pressure and follow the masses?



In all seriousness I see your point, considering the lenght of time it takes the do it yourselfer to finish a project.  However, what are the chances that changing directions will put this project even further behind? 


Keep pushing forward.

Hmmmm, my point of view is criticized, then agreed to. That's got to be a first! For the record, I was merely pointing out that the Mopar engine swap of choice has changed over the last decade. Your "following the masses" argument isn't valid because the original concept of installing a Viper drivetrain was "following the masses" when the project was conceived.

In 2 months, it'll be 11 years since this project was started and I don't think I've seen a build go any slower in all the time I've been on this forum. While the OP's craftsmanship looks to be top notch, if work continues at this same pace, he's got another 10-15 years of time ahead of him.

Now, before everyone jumps down my throat, I understand that everyone works at their own pace and I'm not being critical, rather I'm just pointing out the obvious.

I agree with keeping the Viper swap. Although it is not a popular choice now, way too much work has been done to this car to accommodate the V10. It is still very cool.

From a power standpoint the Hemi can meet and easily exceed the power of the V10. But, put turbos on the V10 and it's a game changer.

I don't remember seeing that many people putting in V10s into Chargers as compared to how many are putting in modern Hemi engines currently. It seems like every SEMA build or featured car has the HellCat Hemi in it now..

Keep on with the V10, have fun if it takes 1 year or 10 more to complete, who gives a sh**.  My Charger took almost 20 years to finish..

20 years and you never lost interest in it.  Sounds like you enjoyed the process.

 rofl I am a slacker for sure! but not on this car.  I'll blame it on having 3 kids and building a house then waiting for my garage to be finished.  I took it off the road in 2001 and picked away slowly at it until 2012 when I really got serious.   I finished it enough to drive and enjoy it in 2017/2018 so not exactly 20 years but still a long time and not once did my interest or passion to finish it fade.  2thumbs
