Im a Mopar fan but Dodge is to busy shoving there thumb up their *** to shift their own gears. Lighten that land yacht a few hundred pounds, add a manual transmission, and fix the ****** tuning problems on that motor, and they would have a killer car. I might be able to forgive the fact they named a four door "Charger".

Keisler makes a 6-speed conversion kit for them.

What would be killer would be a 6-speed SRT8 wagon!

Because It's A Freakin Four Dour, I Think They Should Redesign Em Make A Bitmore Retro And A Two Door And They've Got It, But As Of Now The Car Wood Look Better If It Had A Different Name Charger Are Supposed To Be Performance Cars

1) you need to learn how to spell
2) the srt8 is very much a performance car, just drive one to see for yourself!

the srt-8 chargers and 300c's will have manual trannys by 2009-2010. It'll be when they become based off of the LY platform for the Challenger. The Challenger will be the first one to have a T-56, followed by the 300C, and then the Charger, but with the 300Cs and the Chargers, it will be SRT models only where as the Challenger will have 6-speeds available in the 5.7 and the 6.1 Hemis. This is still a rumor but it's almost impossible that Dodge/Chrysler expects to develop a new tranny for JUST the Challenger then release it and expect to turn a profit. I think putting it into the 300C and Chargers would allow them to turn a profit more easily.

I plan on purchasing an SRT-8 Challenger in a few years and I'm on my way.
