    Hellcat is a LOT of power, it'd require a LOT of supporting mods. A 6.4 Hemi is the biggest I'd go and even then I'd probably reinforce the subframe assembly.

    Well I certainly couldn't complain about a 6.4L LH car.. My Concorde would certainly need to have the fenders swapped from plastic to steel before I would even consider a V8 swap.. The plastic OEMs both cracked from just street use.

    Even a bone stock 5.7L Hemi would make an LH 'talk' since I'm pretty sure that car weighs significantly less than any LX/LY platform vehicle

    Plastic fenders? I know my 300M has steel. I didn't know Concordes had plastic fenders!
    That is one of the reasons I would love to try this swap. Yes there are lighter cars, but it'd be one-of-a-kind, and fun as all get out. Nobody expects a Hemi RWD LH. If I did the suspension and swap properly - not some bodge job - it could out-handle an LX due to the lower weight, and it'd be easier to shave weight off of as well I imagine.

    He must have a 1995 or earlier Concorde. Chrysler used plastic fenders on those model years. I had one. Never had any durability issues with them on my car but interesting to hear there were issues on this one. The nice thing is they didn't rust away in the Wisconsin salty winter driving. In 1996 they went to steel

    I hate how dreams never come true. 4/21 on the way home from work my DD, the 300M with 207,5xx on it, fell victim to a woman who started her left turn and didn't see me when I was 3/4 of the way thru the intersection. Her insurance decided to total it out so now I will need to swap the good panels from it to my other 99, the "Parts car" I was going to turn into the project car.

    Technically speaking since there is a Plymouth Prowler with a 6.1L Hemi swap and the Prowler is using the LH platform, I would think it should be possible.

    Yep.. It's a '94. I did see there are steel replacements available. I'm planning to swap them out when I get a chance..

    Wasn't the 4.0L V8 based on the Lamborghini V8 similar to the Daytona Decepzione Engine??

    Thanks

    There is very little info here on AllPar about what plans there were for the 3rd generation of the LH cars.
    The LH cars were designed from the start to be either FWD or RWD.
    I'm sure there were plans in the late 90's and at least for the first year before Damler killed it.
    What were they?

    The original LX cars were to be red based LH cars but larger. Those didn't get off the ground fiest because they did the Neon and cloud cars. By that time Diamler was there and plans changed again.
