well, let me explain more....we ran into each other on the way home home from doing things around town. i goosed her a few times but she never took the bait....but decides to jump on it after traffic clears up, she got out to about a car length lead but i reeled her in until she hit the governed it was about 3/4 mile...i was passing her before she hit the governer

Clutch Fan removed, 70mm TB, ported and hacked out '03 manifold, 206 cams, FIPK, Magnaflow free flow cats and cat-back, Trans-go shift kit, SC 3715 just done this week. Doesnt sound like much but the cams and manifold restrictions really helped wake it up and no loss at all through out the power band.

I just thought it was wierd that the '09 hemis would govern out at or about 105....i know a guy that has a '08 hemi charger that he said it governs out around 105-110...that just seems weird....now, i didnt do the SC tune until last night after the race....i hit 121ish and still had throttle, it was still pulling. I heard the 4.7s governed out at like 108. Anyway, i guess that what i was trying to figure out....the new hemis governing out at 105?!?

i know for a fact the R/T chargers and Challengers do not govern at 110ish. lol and i know for another fact that the SRT8's still keep going ive backed off at 135. to quick....

nice kill though, but i love the new rams with hemis they are heavy but so comfty.

Motor Trend took a 2008 Challenger SRT8 on a trip through Europe a while back and on the Autobahn run, they were able to get up to 188 mph.
