Courtesy of Turbo John on YouTube, the Challenger build includes an LS engine and Procharger among many other upgrades to make for a quick muscle car.

One of the things that stand out for this particular project – aside from the loud green paint – is the stock crank and the gen-4 rods that are pushing the pistons in this engine.

The Dodge is down at the track with some more tweaking done following some previous issues to see how fast it can make a pass on the quarter mile.

The Procharged Dodge Challenger Is Back For Business

The LS-powered Dodge Challenger got featured previously here courtesy of the same YouTube channel where it was on the dyno with the front fenders, hood and bumper removed for testing.

That time the Challenger made up to 879 hp before there were some other issues including water leaking, but today the team have made some changes and are holding it back a little to play safe.

At the start of the video the car idling sounds phenomenal and looks great in green. The head gaskets got changed, and a cap on the cooling system also got changed which got manufactured wrong and wasn’t water tight.

Pressure sensors got installed as well and the powertrain data gets logged so the team can check its performance and optimize later.

This Procharged LS-Swap Dodge Challenger Is A 9-Second Car On The ¼-Mile

On the strip at Fayetteville Motorsports Park in North Carolina, it makes a hit and looks fast – the ticket shows a 9:54 1/4-mile time at 102 mph; the 1/8-mile was 5:63 at 121 mph.

Another run looks good and afterward we get to see the car’s performance data which shows that with a tweak to the fuel management system the car will be able to run as the team want.

The second pass was at the same time and speed, even with tire shake and the team vow to see how far they can take the rods in this engine before they break – but hopefully stop short of actually breaking them to preserve the condition of this cool Dodge Challenger drag car.

If you are like most people, after seeing this video you might be wondering how much an LS-swap costs – the savings per horsepower could be worth it depending on the build. LS engines can get bought from a few hundred to a few thousand or more depending on where you source the engine and the configuration.

Most sources suggest that with most of the work done yourself a cheap LS-swap can get done for a little as $1000 - a garage will charge much more for the labor charges.
