Dodge Reveals More Details of Scat Pack Kits

At last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, Dodge announced a series of performance packages for the Dodge Dart, Dodge Charger, and Dodge Challenger models that takes its name from the sporty Scat Pack lineup of Dodge cars from the late 1960s and early 1970s. Dodge and Mopar have now released more information about these Scat Pack stage kits for the Challenger and Charger, revealing how much they will cost and exactly how much power they add to the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.

The Scat Pack performance kits are available in three levels, with the Scat Pack 1 kit starting at $2195 for both Challenger and Charger models. This level adds a cold-air intake, a Mopar cat-back exhaust, and a new engine chip that adds 18 hp and 18 lb-ft of torque to the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, which as stock makes 375 hp in the Challenger and 370 hp in the Charger.

The Scat Pack 2 kit, which costs $1895 extra, builds on the level 1 kit and gains a Mopar performance camshaft kit and a stage 2 performance calibration chip that helps the engine breathe better for an increase of 12 more hp to the stage 1 kit, or 30 hp over stock. Lastly, the Scat Pack 3 kit sits atop the range and costs $4995 in addition to the cost of the level 1 and 2 kits. This level’s performance ported cylinder heads, high-flow headers and catalysts, and upgraded engine chip make for an extra 58 hp and 47 lb-ft of torque over the stock V-8 models.

These Scat Pack level 3 Challengers and Chargers come closest to their SRT equivalents, which make 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque from their 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 engines. A fully-equipped Scat Pack Charger makes 428 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque, and a Scat Pack stage 3 Challenger makes 433 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque.

Dodge dealers will offer these Scat Pack kits for sale starting this spring, and the factory warranty remains when these performance packages are installed by the dealer. Stay tuned as we hear more information about the third Scat Pack-equipped Dodge model, the Dodge Dart GT.

Strange. By the time you pay $9,000 + for the parts and then pay to have them installed you could buy the SRT version and maybe even save a little money.
