I promise it wont happen again.
I do have to kind of agree.
The only way I could see a SC being REALLY worth while on the pentastar engine is if you are actually able to maintain 23+MPG.
Otherwise you are basically pushing the power of the V6 to the V8 power for x2 the cost.
Where in the RPM band this power will be made I don't know.
But lets not forget the pentastar gets the lower rated 8 speed transmission. The V6 gets the 8H45 and the Hemi gets the 8H70 or something to that effect. Basically the V6 transmission can't handle nearly as much torque. That means if you do a SC upgrade you will almost without a doubt burn out that transmission.
