Hemi 426 installed in the 300 S?

http://www.modernmoparmagazine.com/w...hrysler-300-s/

That sure seems strange? So Chryco is plopping in a bigger motor than the SRT8's get?
Gilles can't be happy about this, unless it falls under his "umbrella"

And if this is true...Why would SRT not be the ones to get this engine first?

Re: Hemi 426 installed in the 300 S?

Hmmmmm interesting find Bri. Im not buying this one yet though, doesnt seem too realistic but Im not totally against it. It may just open some new doors to the Jeep and other Mopar platforms??

Scott...
So the 426 Hemi is not in the parts bin on the Perfomance division of the company who makes the 426 hemi?

That seems very counterproductive and undermining of a newly born brand.

Again...This is just a rumor and is as real as the 6.4 liter in the wrangler.

Just read that the 6.4l engine costs $28,000 as an option from AEV.

They must be the ones putting the engine in the SRT8. Solves the price increase question! LOL

Believe the next step for SRT will be smaller displacement supercharged V-8's now underdevelopment.
