Re: Forged motor?
I thought I heard rumor that SHR was capable of upgrading the 8spd? But, I have not seen one built by them yet.
As far as forging goes. I figure if you're doing a twin turbo setup you are going to be around 800hp minimum. So you're going to need to forge the pistons, push rods, and connecting rods, and lower the compression. To optimize the boost you're also going to want a custom cam. To me you're spending a lot of money to get to this point so why cheap out on a partial engine build. Plus, the engine is already going to be torn apart. Then you get into things like windage trays, upgraded oil pumps, phaser limiter, upgraded hardware, springs. seals, bearings, etc.
Challenger and Builder forums are great places to find information. There are a bunch of Challengers built in all kinds of configurations that work and don't work so well.
