This webpage showcases my 1973 Dodge Charger.  It is also intend to be an information source for other enthusiasts of 1973 Chargers.  I will try to provide information that I find, so that they might benefit from it as I have.  Unfortunately, information seems to be scarce, and many sources are unreliable internet sites, such as this one.  Any information I provide is not necessarily correct, although I will try my hardest.  Thanks for cruising by, and enjoy the site!  -Phil

Performance Chart The previous owner of the engine figured that with mild timing and pump gas (93 octane), this motor could produce at least 250-275 Horsepower, and 300-400 Ft. Lbs. Torque.  More specific information can be seen in the accompanying dynamometer chart based on a 360 c.i.d. Chrysler engine test from a Competition Cams catalogue.  The engine had the following specifications: a stock intake manifold, headers, 650 c.f.m. carb, and the Competition Cams 280 camshaft.  The car, as it stands, does not run at full potential, nor does it have headers, so as I said this is only an estimation.
