The 1650 Horsepower Sleeper in Jay Leno’s Garage
In 1970, Dodge debuted a 440 Six Pack engine option for the Charger. It featured three two-barrel carburetors and turned out 390 horsepower. Not too shabby, considering the era. But you’d need more than four Six Pack powerplants to equal the earsplitting, 1650 hp Offshore racing motor lurking under the hood of this one-off Charger Tantrum. The heroes who wedged a speedboat motor into Chrysler’s land boat to turn it into a sleek B-body rocket are Wisconsin-based tuners SpeedKore Performance, and they brought the black beauty to Jay Leno so he could walk through the build.
