2008 Dodge Charger with a Chevy V8

2008 Dodge Charger with a 6.0 L LQ4 V8

The owner purchased this 2008 Dodge Charger with a blown 2.7 L V6 with intentions of rebuilding it. But after learning how bad these engines and really liking Chevy engines he decided to go with a 6.0 L LQ4 V8 and 4L80E automatic transmission. The engine was kept completely stock except for a tune and made 308 whp and gets 25 mpg highway.

Exocet with a Supercharged LSA V8

Exomotive has been selling the lightweight Exocet chassis since 2013. The kit allows an amazing race car to be built around the Mazda Miata drivetrain. This also means a Exocet can use LSx drivetrains if the builder uses one of the popular Miata/V8 swap kits.

Flyin’ Miata was asked by a father and son team in cooperation with Exomotive to build them a very…very fast V8 powered Exocet. The engine they chose was a supercharged 6.2 L LSA crate engine used in the Cadillac CTS-V. The engine produces 556 horsepower and 551 ft-lb of torque. The rest of the drivetrain consists of a T-56 six-speed transmission with a SPEC clutch and a Cadillac CTS-V rear end (I think).

Thanks to the weight of the Exocet chassis the car weighs around 1,900 lb. This gives it a 3.4 lb/hp power-to-weight ratio. To give you and idea of how ridiculous a number that is, the Bugatti Veyron has a 4.16 lb/hp power-to-weight ratio while the Pagani Zonda has a 3.93 lb/hp power-to-weight ratio.
