Maybe 4-5 failures they consider part of the normal failure rate? Who knows.

I have also see people bounce the engine off the rev limiter before they shift and while they shift. So abuse can be part of the failures as well.
Agree but up until recently i havnt seen of or heard of this "rash" of voodoo engine failures until now too.

Makes me question considering a GT350

So this is the most powerful engine, in the heaviest muscle car with the stickiest tires and it's still using IRS?

UPDATE: As commenters have pointed out, this seems to be a Durango dash. A 900 HP Durango Demon isn’t necessarily something I’d hold my breath for.

And as someone else pointed out, the torque and HP curves are mathematically impossible

word on the street, that 757 number on the crate could be a "black key" HP rating.
what would a Demon's red key unleash ? 900 or more ?

At the point of 900 HP, at 6500 RPM, the car theoretically would be making 727 lb ft of torque

I'd like to see 1/4 mile time comparisons of all the engine options along side price. Something like:

  1. Pentastar V6, 15's for
  2. HEMI, 14's for 30k?
  3. Scat Pack 13's for 35k
  4. 392 SRT
  5. Hellcat. 11's for 60k
  6. Demon, 10's for
What a menu Dodge has right now. They have me seriously considering getting a new car for the first time in my life.
