M-O-P-A-R ----- Mostly Old Parts And Rust
Nice car ,seems wayyyyyy to expensive to me.
They are trying to compete in the lower end luxury sports market
80 grand plus, finance charges ,annual registration and insurance.
Way too steep for my meager seasoned citizen income.
There's cheaper ways.
One of my co-workers owns an SMS Supercharged Hemi Challenger.
That car is making just North of 700 hp.
It is a BEAST.
At first it was a continual pain in the backside because initially SMS could not get the tune right.Ran way too lean at WOT and it burned some pistons and hurt the bearings.
I told him to take it back to Saleen and have them rebuild it using forged rods, pistons and all new bearings and retune it fatter.
He got a new engine out of the deal at virtually no cost to him.
I gotta give Saleen high marks for making good on the deal.
What I heard about a year ago is SMS suspended making their Challengers because Dodge was gonna lock them out of the engine management computers.
There is only a few guys in the country with the savvy to tune those things properly.
