I bought her about a week ago. 2006 Srt8 w / 22 inch wheels, cai, headers and a diablo sport tuner and very slight shake at idle. Wondering if it has a cam. She seems faster than my 5th gen camaro that had cai, headers(stock exhaust) & tune... Significantly faster even with heavier wheels.

Maybe someone here knows what has been done to her. She is also lowered with coilovers.

The 6.1L has a fairly aggressive cam so some rumpity rump at idle is normal.

Moved thread to regional forum.

Ok, great. I just remember test driving back in 2007 and don't remember the idle being like this. But I did have a Vette at the time that had a bigger cam and the lope was super obvious - so maybe going from that car to test driving the 2007 SRT8 charger is why I couldn't notice at the time. My Camaro has 5.7 with headers & CAI - no cam and its idle is a lot smoother than the 300C. Oh well - a dyno will give me more info.

What are you guys getting HP to the wheels on your cars that DO NOT have a cam?

Take a video at idle by the tailpipe and of the evic rpm counter, should give us a better clue. Any tool marks on the front timing cover bolts or the intake manifold bolts? Where are you located? I'm in Naples and go to Miami/Lauderdale area a fair bit...

Next time I'm over your way if you wanna grab a coffee and bring her out I'll have a look over it and see what I can see too... Built more than one cammed SRT, got a pretty good feeling for the sound they make. My wife has family in Sunrise and in Cooper City... Plus we damn near live at Ikea lately... Lol

Shot these videos a few days ago. I think now that I am used the rougher idle that I believe it probably doesn't have a cam. But she can move pretty quick for such a heavy car.

Will hit the 1/4 mile next week wednesday to see does. And see if I can get to a dyno this weekend.



I will do one later with the specifics mentioned earlier, but I think you can see enough. Only thing i can say at idel she has that little shake.

I don't know anymore but she is fast. At 80mph she can really punch nicely.





First world problems today. Which one should I use today?
