Good point, but aren't they plainly labeled as such? not just badges, but stiching in the seats and special dash plaques? Not something easily removeable...

Hey Tom's.. There is only one Mr. Norm truck that has 540 at the flywheel N/A. It is the first one built and is PB5 Electric Pearl Blue. The prototype 2007 orange Norm truck has a stock 5.7 with a ...at the time...pass through Kenne Bell blower. Blower did not work. No guts. The issue was because Diablo had not been able to get the tune figured out at the time. The prototype belongs to Bill Sefton. None of the Norm trucks were shipped to Canada

Hey Ram.. April of 2008 you could go to just about any Dodge dealer and order a 2008 Mr. Norm Super Truck. They would have scratched there head and said "What?" But for some reason....[Performance West]....all the orders came out of Rancho Dodge in California. Dealers around the country were kinda told late and all the trucks were sold. Somebody made some coin. Anyway .. Packages had to be put together at the dealer , paid for at the dealer, and shipped from by the dealer..even though Rancho Dodge has never has seen one of the production trucks.. Ma Mopar put her approval on the builds. And if you got the Stage 2 heads and cam upgrade ...you got a warranty

Hey Drivehard...Thats because the advertising on the trucks were done before the Diablo tuning could be figured out. Now you can put Turbo's or a Magnacharger on your truck....because the Kenne Bell won't fit....and tuning is good to go.

Could be this guy has a 392/550 hp if he knows someone at Chrysler. I don't know about now a days but you could order anything you wanted with the right amount of money back in the good ole days, lol! I know for a fact that you still can with Chevy because I know some people who have but not sure about the warranty. I'm sure that if someone did with Chrysler there would a a limited or no warranty with the purchase..my opinion :4-don't know:
Hey Radio
There is only one Norm Truck with the crate 6.4 392 . It is PB5 Electric Blue Pearl Coat and resides in the Tampa Florida area. It has the 545rfe auto tranz. None of the Norm Trucks that were assembled @ Hendricks Chrysler / Mopar Supercenter went out with a manual tranz. Truck # 2 was a Quad Cab no engine upgrades and #3 was Silver. It had a cam and heads exchange. That truck went to Alaska

With white stripes.. That was truck #2 and belonged to Patrick Krook of ShowYourAuto.com .. He has since sold it to someone else.

YES I SAW ONE IN THE SHOWROOM WHEN I WAS BUYING MY KIDS AVENGER oops sorry for yelling, I was tempted to buy it for sticker even though I am an employee, would not sell it to me, they are lucky I had signed the papers already or I would have told them to pound salt. My uncle brought cash right to this dealer and he would not sell it. He was having an auction on the weekend and anything over the sticker price was going to charity. Car sold for over 80Grand. Nice gesture but BS when you want to buy something.
