Re: 1985 Dodge Charger 2.2 Photos Wanted
I've seen that car before. I don't really see the point though. I think if I wanted a 3800 SC RWD I would build a fiero.... You can't be blindingly fast FWD and with the 8v engine, so no reason to go through all that for speed. Even sound is way better, a 8v with a cam sounds like a V8 at idle. A v6 just doesn't have the sounds. The Chargers were hugely popular with RWD drag racing when I was a kid. The guy that taught me how to build autos ran an 8.80 Charger with a 383 in it.
An interesting build and a different build, just not something I'd do. I may get a really sweet Fiero GT this year though on trade. Heard the 4.1 uses the same mounts, so maybe the caddy 4.1 in it. Or that same 3800 SC. The 2.8 is slower, by a lot, than the carb 84 SC lol. So that won't be staying lol.
