Dodge Magnum SRT8
The 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 is borne of Street and Racing Technology (SRT) engineers who successfully injected SRT DNA into a Dodge Magnum in order to produce a vehicle that can cover a quarter-mile in the mid-13-second range and haul home a brand-new 27-inch TV.
Performance numbers for the all-new 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 include a 0-60 mph time in the low-5-second range and 60-0 mph braking in approximately 110 feet. Capable of covering a quarter-mile in the mid-13-second range, the Dodge Magnum SRT8 can accomplish SRT's signature performance test of 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16-second range.
SRT engineers who developed the Dodge Magnum SRT8's engine achieved more horsepower by adding more cubic inches, increasing the compression ratio, and redesigning the cylinder head, intake and exhaust systems for better flow and increased engine speed.
For more displacement, SRT engineers bored out the diameter of the cylinders in the HEMI by 3.5 millimeters each in order to increase the total displacement to 6.1 liters from 5.7 liters. Compression ratio was also increased to 10.3:1 from 9.6:1, increasing engine efficiency and power.
Power for the SRT 6.1-liter HEMI is channeled through a five-speed automatic transmission with specially calibrated driver-selectable AutoStick®, which offers fully automatic or manual shifting selection. A heavy-duty four-flange prop shaft sends the torque from the transmission to an upgraded differential and axles.
