This is outright blatant price gouging.

I bet the V-Sport is the bread and butter and the V is just a "Hey look what we can do".

M5's sell 535 M-Sports no doubt.
Then put a $500 LSA SUPERCHARGER on it

Ps.... Why aren't you living vicariously through me yet????

Used. Yes. But all the other parts equate to about $2500 or so? Piece by piece. In my case, a lot more since I'm running different or upgraded parts.

Still, $3000ish is stupid cheap.

If I thought I'd keep one long enough to matter that would be enticing.

Yup. A company named C Henry motor sports took a bone stock SS.. Put on a bone stock blower, rotofab cold air intake and... Well... Tuned obviously.... And it put down 520whp stock sized pulley and manifolds and all. Super impressive.

I'm torn. I want to pickup a slighty used SRT Jeep, but maybe wait a few years and pickup a used one of these or a used charger hellcat......

Those SRT Jeeps are very badass! Besides, you have already owned a V before. I find it tempting to go back to the previous cars I have owned and loved, but I always stop short of following through because there are many more cool vehicles that I haven't owned yet!

Yeah, the regular Hemi JGC's are sure nice, but they don't quite get the job done for most folks that frequent a place like TCG.

What power were you at on the caddy while hitting those 10.7 ET's? Somewhere just north of 600 at the wheels, I assume?

IIRC, the only difference between lsa and ls3 heads is lsa heads are rotocast and have a small bump in the runner to aid boost.

Stock WS6's have decent clearance. I'd rock a vfn 4" Ram air though.

612rwhp

Best 60' was 1.52

Upper/lower pulley
Full exhaust
Cai
More fuel
Mild "stockish" cam

My next steps were to port the blower and put heads on it.

The cam did so well in that setup that speed used it on a bunch of builds. Car had just the right torque to get its fat ass moving. I was the first to run with it around here at least.

Couple vids:
