Default 2009 Dodge Ram 5.7L Challenger edition with 500hp?

First off: This is my first post, I don't own a RAM but I am a dodge guy with a 06 Magnum SRT8. And I'm posting this as a serious question as you guys would be the guys that know if this is true or not.


My brother in-law works with someone has a 2009 Dodge RAM with a 5.7L engine. Apparently when he got them to build the truck he asked for a few things such as no striping and quad cab instead of 2.

Now this thing apparently does 500HP at the crank, it has aluminium panels and hood with scoop etc. This truck hauls arse I'm told. I have a hard time believing this but my brother in-law says he produced paper work to prove it's legit. Apparently only 6 made for canada and I'm not sure how many for the USA.

I figured it was an SRT-10, but he's positive it's a 5.7L with different heads etc.

The problem is i can't find this truck anywhere on the internet. Anyone ever heard of this?

I'd be real interested in finding out about this truck, sounds interesting.

Thanks all

Never heard of any such thing and I don't believe it's factory with that kind of HP numbers. I'm not going to swear it isn't true but I'd want to see dyno numbers and the paperwork.

Yeah that's my feeling as well. Hoping to shed some light on the subject. I will have to go see this thing myself at some point. He swears it's legit and that he paid a fortune for it but would not disclose how much.

Anyone else that might confirm or deny this ?

Oh btw if I do go see this truck, what's a good way to identify what is in it? I know what my 5.7L Hemi and my 6.1L Hemi look like in my Magnums, do they look similar to the ones in the RAM?

I bet he has an SRT-10 engine and put freaking 5.7L badging on it or something :P Makes no sense to me

The last year for the SRT-10 was 2006. The engines will look pretty much as they do in your cars with the exception of the intakes being different.

Now something like that I could believe but, as far as being straight from the factory, I seriously doubt it.

Mr. Norm use to be a Dodge dealer many years ago . Thats where the GSS Dart originated from along with many other Mopar hot rods . Mr. Norm is to Dodge like Yenko was to Chevy .
