Not much information available at this time, but it is a new Supercharged engine destined for future SRT models - right now showing that it's for the Charger, 300C and Challenger.

from what i know they have further reinforced the bulkheads(deck height) and swapped the pistons for some with a little more meat between the rings. Also many different grade internals

Future as in the next production model run (i.e. in 4-5 years)? This isn't the engine that was talked about possibly coming in 2013 or 2014 is it? I can't imagine Chrysler releasing the 6.4 to only use it for one or two model years.

The 6.4 is going to be around for many more years. There are a couple of new 6.4 variants in the works, one for the Dodge Ram and another improved performance version of which I am not yet sure what it's going in to.

There has been some talk about the Challenger and other "L" vehicles getting supercharged engines, with some even saying that it will be offered as the only engine choice in SRT8 models (replacing the 6.4L). I don't believe that it will happen that way. The info I have so far points to having very special custom models offered with the 6.2 SC engine - very low production runs that will be priced considerably higher than regular SRT models. Plans are in their early stages and decisions are still being made as we speak.

As for the WK2 SRT8, I still show the 6.4 as running for the entire generation (2012-2016MY). That doesn't rule out a special 6.2 SC or 6.4HP edition for the Jeep in the future, anything is possible - but no way would it make the 2013 model year. The Challenger/Charger will be the first SRT8 models out the gate with increased HP special editions.

Chrysler's answer to the GT500, CTS-V and the ZR-1.

So not sure if I'm still drunk from last night or just reading this wrong...Chrysler's answer? The CTS-V and ZR-1 are GM, correct? LOL.

Yes, Chrysler's answer to Ford and GM's supercharged motors which make the 6.1L and 6.4L NA Hemi look a bit anemic in comparison.

p.s. I think you were still drunk..... LOL
