The SRT's typically don't include anything that different, you are talking about premium sound (I have the Alpine upgrade) and stripes (no thanks) and on the new models they get the big brakes (Really want some Brembo's for mine)
So, I disagree about it being "false advertising"
Ok. Here we go.
WRONG!!!! Challenger SRT8 has the 6.1 liter HEMI engine. Starting with the '11 Model, it's a 6.4 liter HEMI engine which is badged as a 392 HEMI. The '12 Chargers and the Jeep Cherokee SRT8 will be badged as a 6.4L HEMI but the engine is the same. On all of the '06 - 10 SRT8 LX bodies (Chargers, Maggies, 300s) and the LD body (Challenger) all share the same power plant. 6.1 Liter HEMI engine and the 5 speed Mercedes transmission.
As for the SRT10s RAMs. Yes they are V10s. But they had the same engine as the Viper. (Thus the "Viper Powered" Badge on either side of the hood).
And just in case you are thinking the first Challenger SRT8 was a 5.7. Think again. That was also a 6.1L.
No true SRT vehicle will have a 5.7 liter engine unless someone drops one in a Crossfire SRT6 (which has happened already) or in a SRT4 Neon/Caliber or in a Prowler (which I don't see how it would fit).
Believe me. The SRTs are a complete different vehicle compared to the other models. As for the Brembo brakes... SRT has always used Brembo Brakes on thier SRT8 and up models. Not 100% sure if the SRT4s and the Prowler has it as well. I do know the 6, all of the 8s, and the Vipers use them.
And before anyone gets on me about it (this if for those that never saw my intro thread nor my pic thread) I call my Ram "SRT Hauler" cause the Ram is the only truck on the planet that is worthly to haul my 6.1 Liters of Hurst Equipped MOPAR Goodness around.
As for the position of your SRT8 badge.... I like it. It's different. Most people put thier hood badges right there by the cowl (best word I can come up with to describe it)

Speedfactory did come out with a 5.7 SRT8 Ram for the '06 model. Bored out the 5.7, added some more power adders, and re did the front bumper. Plus it came with the option to drop a 6.1 liter into it. Arrlington Engines is selling one on their Shop HEMI web site: http://www.shophemi.com/p-715-57l-he...edfactory.aspx
and here: http://www.shophemi.com/p-716-57l-he...g-package.aspx
Personally I like the black one better.
Been talking with Speedfactory about getting the Stage 2 done to my SRT8 and get this done to my Ram much further down the road... (maybe after another deployment..)

Here's a before and after.....
So, I'm still glad I took off the factory badges because they are impossible to clean and just trap dirt and water. Not to mention they extended almost the entire length of the front door.
I think I want to put something on to break up this giant red wall, but it can't have any holes in it (like the zero's or the 'R' & 'A' portion of the factory badges)
I have seen people relocate their badges onto the bridge of the hood and while I was tinkering with the idea I discovered what I think is a pretty good place for a badge on the side of the hood.
The Hemi badge will fit there, but just barely. What I really needed was something that it only about an inch tall and longer.
I searched and searched for a '345 HEMI' badge to no avail, and eventually found the SRT8 badges which were the perfect size and shape with no holes.
Yes I know I can have custom badges made but I assume it would be insanely expensive.
It cost me $45 to get my SRT Hauler badge done from this guy: http://rebadgedesign.com/
All he needs is measurements and he can hook you up with whatever badge you want/need. He's a vendor on the oldest LX forum out there. PM me for the link to his thread or just go to the site. I know there has been a couple of more people on here that have gotten with him to do custom badges.

That's tight!!!! Been debating about dropping the grand for the hood. After seeing how bad ass that looks. Might do it also.
