    For me, the TRX is not about street performance. The Trackhawk is, that's why HP needs to be big.

    Official Guess: 620HP 600LBS 11.7 @ 120

    Definitely agree.

    The 8HP95 has a 500 kW gas engine input rating (670 BHP) and the Jeep GC is not a light vehicle either.

    Not what I'm hearing...there will be huge differences between supercharged trackhawk and the trackhawk front and rear. There will be NO mistaking each

    The lack of fog lights will be pretty obvious. There is no mistaking any of the Hellcat powered Mopar.

    These differences are a little more obvious even to someone that wouldn't know a thing about the trackhawk

    Really? That costs money and that's why there was never a Dart SRT.

    The maximum torque values for all the components are easily found. FCA has been controlling power for years to protect the longevity of components. The all wheel drive system is ripe for potential failure points.

    Based on your comment you should probably take a little time to look up the torque capacities of the components involved to understand the engineering and design better.

    Ah, but would enough people be willing to shell out the 150K+ it would cost once all of that extra engineering and part costs were factored into the vehicle?

    Yeah, it might be easy to do it, especially in the aftermarket world, but they don't have to deal with longevity or warranty or emissions issues.

    Remember, its EASY and CHEAP to make horsepower, hell, anyone can do that. Its EXPENSIVE to make horsepower that lasts.
