I don't know much about the 6.2s either.. But thats a whole lot of power to take on... And i heard the same thing about Chrysler making the new 6.2s! They are supposed to start out going in the 2014-2015 Barracudas that are rumored to take over the Challenger! I can't wait.

the 6.2s are pretty strong but no chance against a hemi the trucks they put them in are heavy like the big crew cab harley davidson and raptors theres a raptor out here in beaumont tuned and it pulls pretty hard but i still beat him all the time from a dig a 20 roll 60 punch whatever it just doesnt compare to the power of a HEMI

they are getting that power with just a 93 tune swap. With the downpipe, 93 tune the 6000lb crewcabs which mopars call megacabs runs 12.8s on street tire. If one needs to go faster, the rcsb f150 5.0 with the roushcharger runs 10.8s on drag radials, stock internals ;-) johnny lightning performance has one in their stable and I saw it run at MIR this past september. Yup ford and boost is nothing new from their 13' shelby GT 500 in street weight running 9s recently dipped into 8s to the vehicles I've mentioned above. Glad to see you keep an open mind as do I. Chrysler has a ways to go..curious to what the new viper can run, pretty penny though.. http://youtu.be/GKMJqjkmXng

The 6.2 is an option in the F150 Platinum but not in the lesser F150 trucks. I don't know how the weights of the Dodge and Ford compare but I would think with similar gearing a 6.2L F150 should be tough to beat. That's certainly not saying a new Hemi won't smoke a 6.2 F150.....I'm just judging by the numbers.

According to Wikipedia, the 6.2L in the Super Duty trucks only make 385HP/405TQ. Kinda odd that the heavier trucks would make less power than the lighter duty trucks with the same engine but that's what it says. In the heavier Super Duty truck with power levels closer to a new Hemi (less actually) I would think a new Hemi Ram would easily smoke the 6.2L.

I just got done reading a comparo between the Vette ZR1 and the new Viper in Car and Driver last night. Best I remember the Viper is banging 60mph in the sub 3.5 second area and the 1/4 mile in the sub 11.5 second range. That would slot it in handily between the Vette and the Shelby GT500. A big issue there though is that the GT500 starts at $55K while the Vette and the Viper are both $100K give or take.

The Viper sure looks badass but given the choice I would take the Shelby hands down and that's before you consider that I would have $40K+ left over after buying it. It's all personal preference though. It doesn't really matter because they probably wouldn't let me test drive any of these cars, let alone ever own one, lol.

I hear you man, I'd be happy with a pre 02 vipers..consider them timeless. As for the 6.2 I haven't seen to much action racing wise..rousch do make a bolton kit for them also though. Heres a contender for a boosted Ram R/T, size and weight. A guy can pick up an xlt rcsb with 3.55 rears and get a roush charger installed at the dealer out the door for under 35k under warranty...Have fun at the track without a care in the world. Its only a 5.0 but shes nasty...what I really like about it is they come with a drivetrain that can back it up..looking forward to the new 8 speed trannys mopars are coming out with though

Someone just find a 6.2 rolling around and race it. And yeah the new Vipers are one of my favorites already. The 0-60 is just under 3.5.

My dads got a Raptor with the 6.2 crew cab. His wieghs in at 6200 and some change my crewcab Ram weighs in at 5500 and change, both are 2012s. With some fast math he's got 15.085 lbs per hp and I've got 14.103 lb per hp go Dodge I took both trucks from a stop sign near here to the 55mph sign just down the road. His Raptor with 4.11 gears and 35 11.50 tires (stock) reached the sign at 65mph. My Ram with 33 12.50 tires and 3.55 gears reached the sign at 65mph as well. I need to catch him at a red light or drag strip to find out for sure but based on that both feel very close to even. I've tried to get him to put the Raptor in the local pickup pull, he couldn't last year, so this summer maybe... I think that test against mine would yeild more bragging rights then the speed test as his sticker was 49k mine was 37k so I would really rub it in lol. Both trucks are fun to drive and even more fun to give each other hell about
