Hey i just a found a really nice and interesting article. I dont know if you already knew it but in the Wraith movie which they used a black Interceptor car. It has Chrysler 2.2 Twin Garrert turbo, Intercooled with Cosworth DOHC 16Valve engine and produced 440 hp with 0-60 in 4.1 sec according to Allpar. So why cant we make and use that engine, someone just have to find this engine and take it apart and figure it out how it works :D. Its amazing and again according to Allpar only 4 of them been built and they are based on Daytona. See pics it has Chrysler steering and same shifter as 80's Daytona. What do you guys think about 440 hp with the same 2.2 engine :thumb:

Tryingbe I'm with you too I even myself am a poor guy but I've seen so many people waste their money on rebuilding and restoring a car that's been done many times nothing new if I was good at mechanical stuff like most of you guys I would definitely go for this. Its not in my business but people spending their money on building a max 300 max 400 up Dohc tIII engines but getting idea from this engine that has Cosworth (god I love their product) would made our Chrysler instead of comparing to Japanese rice we should hear story about our TD beating Ferrari and Lamborghinis

That's not duct tape on the floor...I'm fairly certain it's a vent.

The shifter is a 555 shifter, just like you would find in any daytona. The difference is the center console is very high, so it covers almost the entire thing. It may have also been shortened some, but it really doesn't look like it.

Yes, it's a modified Cosworth head on that engine. This subject has been discussed MANY times. The problem is that the head is EXPENSIVE!! To do this swap figure around $10,000(due to the cost of getting the head, having it refurbished, then having it modded to fit the 2.2). You can still get the heads. Hell, you can get them stateside, but be prepared to get RAPED to get a good one. Then you have to make custom EVERYTHING. That engine also used a dry sump oiling system and drove the alternator off of the intake cam.

It is easier and more cost effective to use the DOHC heads we have available to us, inlcuding the Lotus TIII, Maserati, and the 2.0/2.4. 300-400hp on the street is a huge amount of power...especially in a FWD car. Hell...hook up 400hp on the track in a light car and you're in the LOW 11's, possible 10's at over 120mph...what more do you want!?

I'm with reaper on this... while it may be droolworthy in its own right, its 20 year old technology at this point. We've come along since then. Hell, a DIYS Megasquirt kit (That I maintain looks like an 'introduction to electronics' project) is more advanced, better performing and far more flexable than anything they had brainwise to plug that monster engine into, not to mention our turbos have come a long way as well.

I agree with you REAPER even 200 hp is enough to seat you back under hard acceleration but still with that we would have a Super Daytona. And "TurboDodgeNoob" your right also our new Turbos and stuff might be better but i loved anything by the name Cosworth and always loved to have a Cosworth Escort european version. But at the end it all comes to $$$ dream wont come true anytime soon $$$ :eek:

I have personally written cosworth to inquire about the price of that cylinder head. About all i could gain from those emails are: The head is 12.5k shipped to New Hampshire. Its a product originally designed for (you guessed it) Fords.

I`d be completely happy with the 1990 dodge daytona R/T concept just like it was but coming out in 2008/09 with the C-SRT-4 motor with AWD.
Challenger is nice but I`d definately buy a new daytona with gas prices the way they are now.

WOW, I can't believe that I missed this thread.

For the 4 produced, there were more "prop" cars that were made, leaving one in Wichita, Kansas, but there is one that is complete with the cosworth head is in Michigan and it is one of the PPG cars. But for the "twin turbo" manifold, there is a guy on here that has 2 TD04HL's that are stock from the SRT-4 that he is putting in his car, and it looks wicked. But I personally would have loved to have been working at the Shelby Garage when the first 16V AWD 1st gen Daytona left his plant and headed to Europe. That would have been a car to keep an eye on. But where there is a will, there is a way, and there is going to be somebody that actually dumps the money for that head and just does it for the hell of it.
