The Scat Pack is back! Dodge is rolling out Scat Pack performance stage kits from Mopar, which can help boost the performance of the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 up to an additional 58 horsepower and 47 lb.-ft. of torque.
With the Scat Packs, Dodge enthusiasts can get the maximum performance from their Challenger or Charger and not void the factory powertrain warranty – it’s an industry first from an Original Equipment Manufacturer. Any 2014 Dodge Challenger or Dodge Charger R/T modified with the Scat Pack 1, Scat Pack 2 or Scat Pack 3 performance stage kits by an authorized dealer can count on the warranty remaining intact.
The Scat Pack kits include items such as cold air intakes, a performance camshaft and performance exhaust components. More importantly, each Scat Pack includes a new powertrain control module that maximizes the performance of the hardware upgrades.
The Scat Pack has a long heritage, just like Dodge. It started out as a club in the late 1960s for Dodge performance enthusiasts. It included a national Scat Pack club membership, decals and merchandise. The vehicles that made up the Scat Pack included the Charger R/T, Coronet R/T, Dart GTS and the Super Bee. The vehicles were built to be upgraded.
The new Scat Pack kits are built to complement the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger and include a numbered hard badge associated with the performance stage, so enthusiasts can display the emblem proudly on their vehicle as a badge of honor. They are designed to be added on one at a time. Your badge will reflect the Scat Pack level at which you’ve invested.
