I haven't seen any threads about this question. Has anyone installed a 6.4l in there 06-10 SRT. I've been told that its now possible.
Yup exactly what I was thinking or even upgrading a 6.1 to a 426..... Plus I thought they were saying the crank on a new 6.4 was not forged and would not be good for boost as to why they are coming out with a 6.2 liter motor....

^^^This. You will spend a very comparable amount of money between the two options, but the stroked 5.7/6.1 motor option will allow you to produce much greater power.^^^^ What Eric said, why get a stock crate setup when you can turn your existing stock 6.1 into a handful of different sizes built around your needs and goals. You'll be able to push big numbers with a motor built the way you want with whatever FI power combos etc rather than being stuck with a stock 6.4 that makes 50 more hp than the stock 6.1 does.
I have been told by a young man who does a lot with SRT neons that the 6.1 black is a very thin wall compared to 5.7 or the 6.4 so boring it out I’m not sure aboutDo you mean put the new 6.4L in? What would be the point of that? The 6.1 can be bored out to a 6.4, 7.0, 7.2.....and has tons of aftermarket parts available. Why would you want to swap to a newer, weaker, unproven engine, that has very limited tuning, and very few performance parts available? It hasn't even been proven that the new 6.4 can safely handle boost.
