    Actually one of my 12.2 runs was in a +1200 DA but the other 12.2's I have run was in +500 DA's. I have noticed that DA isnt affecting the 392 as much. BUT AIR TEMPS DO!!!! If is nice and cold out and the DA is still high the car still loves it. Is your friends an Auto or manual?? The manuals are nowhere near as fast as the autos. As far as Mods, there isnt much you can do to the 392's since there is no tuning for them yet.

    There is no doubt the 392 is a beast. The fastest guy on that list is now in the 11's with his car. It is not "bone stock" slicks, skinnies, stall convertor, CAI. And he ran a 11.96. I don't care what way u look at that, it is impressive. and i believe he weighted in at close to 4500lbs.

    And no doubt the Auto's are about .5 sec faster the manuals.

    I am excited for the tuning to come also. I want to see what these things can do with a tune.

    I believe his 12.7 pass was done with -400 DA. :shrug: At the time with was stock... he has since done a CAI and removed the cats but obviously with the lack of tuning ability he probably won't see any benefits.

    Edit: It was 12.7 @ 109...

    12.7 @ 110 with the cai/no cats.

    It's a manual...that's very disappointing that the manuals are somehow nuetered.

    I don't think they are nuetered, but the auto cars shift so efficiently that the manual cars can not compete consistantly.

    Same thing with the auto 5.0's, they are consistantly faster then the manual 5.0's.

    I don't know... I don't claim to be the worlds greatest driver but I do pretty well and I wasn't able to do any better than he did at the track.. if the manuals are that far behind there really has to be some kind of fatal flaw... poor gearing? torque management?

    The transmission is a TR6060, same as the one ford, and chevy uses. And the manual cars come with 392 gears. Not questioning your theory just saying what the car has. I think it proves how good the computer systems are now for the autos.

    The 392 programming in the PCM is killing the manuals. The Torque management in the manuals is horrible. It pulls a ton timing and throttle after a shift in the manual cars. The Torque management in the auto is pretty bad too but not like the manual cars.

    That would explain a lot actually... I no lift shifted his car all the way down the track no problem... It was pretty smooth now that I think about (when I no lift in my ls1 I can feel stuff being hit pretty hard). Any idea on when tuning with come around?

    Here is a clip of my 11.96 pass. The car has a converter, cai, catback, and no tuning or weight reduction. The best my car ran BONE stock was 12.38 in 1800 DA with me driving it (265lbs)

    That is some sick time, you are running in that car. And damn impressive for the few mods it has. When tunning becomes available these 392's are going to be even more impressive. I have been watching you post on challengertalk the past few weeks. Was waiting to see that 11 sec pass.

    I would love for dodge to put that 392 down into a 3600lbs car. I know alot of people over there keep talking about a blower. But a 3600lbs car and that 392 NA would make for a hell of a combination.

    Lol
    I'd say the edge goes to the Cobra.

    The 392 makes 30 rwhp more. But adds 650 lbs. To the mix.

    The challenger wasn't built to be fast. It was built to capitalize on the retro market while adding great power undergone in an era of no camaro and a barely 300 hp mustang.

    The Cobra doesn't fall flat up top either. I'd say the Cobra owns it down low and up top.

    Terminator VS 392 both in stock trim the edge DEFINATELY goes to the 392. Wasnt Evan Smiths time of 12.4 @ 113 the fastest bone stock Terminator time? And that was Evan Smith driving!! NOW pullied Terminator in 6000+ altitude to a stock 392.......the edge goes WAYYY to the Terminator. LOL
