vehicles with new Scat Pack performance stage kits, first unveiled by Dodge
and Mopar last November at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association
(SEMA) show in Las Vegas, can do so with confidence that the vehicle warranty

Scat Pack 1, Scat Pack 2 and Scat Pack 3 performance stage kits with
installation at an authorized dealer.
"The Scat Pack factory stage kits can help boost 5.7-liter HEMI performance up
to an additional 58 horsepower and 47 lb.-ft. of torque, allowing Dodge
enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the
fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles,"
said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. "And now with a warranty
guarantee, they can do so with the peace of mind that their manufacturer's
warranty remains intact."
"The new Scat Pack kits reinforce our commitment to the performance arena,"
said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC's service,
parts and customer-care brand. "By maintaining the vehicle warranty, we are
demonstrating to customers our confidence in the kits, which were built to
exactly complement the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger by working
hand-in-hand with the engineers who use factory specs to create these vehicles
-- exclusive knowledge available only to Mopar."
Mopar and Dodge also revealed specifics on pricing and performance benchmarks
for the trio of Scat Pack performance stage kit options. The Scat Pack 3 stage
kit will provide a boost of nearly 60 horsepower and close to 50 lb.-ft. of

Stage 3 kit. Each Scat Pack kit includes a numbered hard badge associated with
its performance stage, so enthusiasts can proudly display the emblem on their
vehicle as a badge of honor.
The Scat Pack 1 performance stage kit for the 2014 Dodge Challenger and 2014
Dodge Charger achieves a boost of up to 18 horsepower and 18 lb.-ft. of torque
through modifications including a Mopar cold-air intake to provide increased
air-flow into the engine, Mopar cat-back exhaust to free up downstream
airflow, and an all-new performance calibrated engine controller, optimized to
the 5.7-liter HEMI engine.
For the 5.7-liter HEMI, Scat Pack 2 adds up to a 30 horsepower bump and is
geared towards the performance enthusiast looking for that competitive edge.
In addition to a customized, optimized performance calibration feature
tailored for Scat Pack 2, a new Mopar performance camshaft works in
conjunction with the components of the Scat Pack 1 kit to take advantage of
improved engine breathing and deliver an additional acceleration advantage.
