To ensure the V8 could deal with the extra power forced upon it,

Dodge introduced an enhanced driveline and a strengthened rear differential.

The latter is a huge 53% stronger than its predecessor thanks to the use of high-quality aerospace-grade materials.

Dodge upgraded nearly every primary part of the powerplant except for the camshaft.

New spark plugs with improved heat range mean fuel combustion is improved, while a

stronger connecting rod is added to face up to the extra combustion pressure produced.
