4 door LX SRT8 Manual Conversion
Hello Friends and Fans! If you have been following what we have been up to in recent years you will know that we have successfully completed several four door SRT8 manual transmission conversions. If you haven’t seen these particular vehicles, you will now… that is if you continue reading this article.
We are often asked for info on out SRT manual swaps, if we offer a manual swap kit, and if we could swap a customers 300C, Charger or Magnum with a 6 speed manual transmission. These are not always easy questions to answer, and here is why. What we do when building these cars and the parts we use go far above what we consider a “swap”. They way we complete these vehicles involves a complete donor Challenger (for the manual trans, harness, rear gears, tunnel, etc) full disassembly of the both the donor and the 4 door interiors, lots of cut, welding, fab and a LOT of wiring and programming.
Of course one could take a 2006 Charger and throw a 5.7l manual setup in it, but that cluster is probably gonna light up like Clark Griswold’s house, and what would you be sacrificing on-top of that? Drivability, creature comforts, safety? When we approach our manual conversion we aim to make the vehicle appear and operate just as it would have from the factory (or better). That means no check engine lights, no loss of power, and retention of all creature comforts inside the vehicle. We use the period correct driveline. The 05-10 LX cars we build, get the 425hp 6.1L HEMI and TR6060 transmission. This is no easy task, making it more than a “swap” and not really possible to sell as a kit. We of course would do the conversion for any one interested. So if you are looking for more info on the process, or are wising your 4 door LX had a third pedal, take a look at the info below. As always, please feel free to call us at 866-236-5031 with any questions or comments.
2008 300C SRT8 – Manual Conversion
Cleveland Power and performance is back at it with another stunning manually converted 4 door LX car. This time around we used a clean titled 300C SRT8 for the conversion. Just like the others, this car was professionally and painstakingly converted to a 6 speed using a Challenger SRT as the donor. The tunnel was swapped, harness handmade, and countless hours were spent programming and fabricating. In addition to the factory Tremec TR-6060 transmission, this 300C also received a Vortec blower, Hellcat brakes painted in a custom green, Kooks longtubes, Corsa exhaust, KW suspension, Custom made grille and tons more!
Take a look at the full vehicle at all of the finished pictures and info on this amazing car HERE. Make sure to click the build photos link on the page to see how everything came together. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact us!
Home of the 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI Turnkey Pallet
Home of the 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI Turnkey Pallet
Cleveland Power and Performance is the home of the 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI Turnkey Pallet. Our 6.1L & 6.4L HEMI packages are sold setup on a pallet and ready to run once you receive it! Just and fluids, fuel, and fire it up! We offer these turnkey pallets as an alternative to crate packages or basic engine and transmission dropouts, providing ease of use as well as ultimately saving customers thousands of dollars.
When pulled from a donor vehicle, these late model 6.1L and 6.4L HEMI engine packages require communication with a number of VIN matched modules in order to run properly. Depending on the year, make, model and options on the vehicle that the driveline was removed from will determine the models needed to get your package running properly in your custom car or hot rod.
Here are some examples of what we include with our HEMI dropouts.
Of course, all of these parts are all wired up together, on the pallet, when we sell our ready to run dropouts.
A large number of essential communication components in late model LX based cars are VIN matched and can only be properly programmed or diagnosed using the appropriate hardware/software. Unlike most, if not all, high performance other salvage yards, we have the ability to program, scan, and troubleshoot late model Dodge/Chrysler computers. This gives us the opportunity to ensure that every turnkey package that we sell is properly programmed and can be used in a custom application. For far to long, and even to this day in some circles, there was a major misconception regarding the ability to use these packages outside of the vehicles that the came in. There was special emphasis on the inability to use the NAG1 transmission that Chrysler used behind their HEMI’s for years. With outside of the box (almost literally in this sense) thinking, we here at Cleveland Power and Performance have essentially dispelled those rumors. By offering several dozen 6.1L and 6.4L auto and manual turnkey dropouts over the last several years, and by seeing them used in many unique applications, we have shown that these packages can indeed be used in just about whatever you can dream up!
We move fast when we drop a HEMI! We pull everything neatly and carefully, but we move fast!
With all of this being said, we urge buyers to make sure they get exactly what they need when purchasing a HEMI to used in their old Mopar or custom car. All to often we get calls from customers shopping else where, either buying used or crate motors, looking for parts to get their HEMI running or advice on what to do. We are always willing to provide advice, however due to the fact that we sell our engines as turnkey packages we very rarely have the parts available that the need to run their motor. We have always and will continue to go the extra mile to make sure that every single dropout that we sell is exactly what the customer needs.
One of our 6.1L Turnkey setups was featured on the hit TV show Chop Cut Rebuild and was ultimately dropped in a 1970 Barracuda!
Check out this page showing the 6.1L Barracuda, dubbed “The Anchor”, getting a full wrap right on the SEMA floor!
The same vehicle was also featured Hot Rod Network’s website here.
We have sold a number of these turnkey pallets overs the years, and we have seen them find great homes. We have seen them put into some very unique and downright awesome project cars. Some of our turnkey HEMI’s are now in their new homes under the hoods of Dusters, Imperials, V6 LX Cars, Barracudas, Pickup trucks, Coronets, and much more. Much like children, we provide a loving and caring environment for these packages until they are ready for their new home. Sometimes we are sad to see them go, but their stop here is only temporary as they are ultimately destined for greater things… like running a quarter mile on a balmy Saturday morning on an Arizona drag strip, or doing a smokey burnout on a lonely road overlooking a pacific sunset in northern California, or even taking the kids out on the last nice autumn day for a Sunday drive in foothills of the Pocono’s. Lets take a look at at some of the HEMI turnkeys past….
We would be happy to be the supplier of the HEMI package in you Mopar build! If you are looking for a specific package, please let us know as we will do what we can to find one for you.
If you have any questions regarding one our our turnkey setups, or any other packages that we have, please call us at 866-236-5031 to discuss.
