Welll we have you covered!  Technically, it is Cristy Lee and Steve Magnante, but you get the idea...

The info revealed thus far doesn't provide us with solid numbers, but we do hear that Stage 3 is roughly 3x the power GAINED from Stage 1.

You can learn more about each stage by following along in the video series:

 

Again, we sadly don't get numbers here, but we do see Steve driving the Stage 3 Challenger R/T at Milan Dragway.  Hopefully we get some numbers in the near future, both from the dyno and the track.  It might also be nice for enthusiasts to see a full "how to" for each aspect of the 3 stages.  Nothing too complex outside of the cam swap...

Part 2: Highlighting Stage 2 and Stage 3 Components

Part 3, Drag Strip Testing: Challenger R/T vs Stage 3 Scat Package Equipped Challenger R/T

 

Keep checking back...As we learn more info we will gladly share it with you!

Here is a run down from the blog.mopar.com site to provide a bit more insight to go along with the videos:

If you’re like us here at Mopar’s Under The Hood blog, the first reaction to the news that Mopar and Dodge are bringing back the Scat Packages and unleashing more power for the Charger, Challenger and Dart is a resounding, “wow!”

Once that rush passes the next question is “OK, what do I get?” Let’s not waste any words, here are the nuts and bolts of the new Scat Packages.

Some basics apply to all three cars:

There are three Scat Packages each for the Dart, Charger and Challenger. The contents of the Scat Packages for the Charger and Challenger are similar, since both vehicles are available with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 that gets the upgrades.
Much like the building blocks you played with as a kid, and now play with along with your kids, the Scat Packages build on each other. That means Scat Package 2 works along with Scat Package 1, and Scat Package 3 adds to all the goodies from Packages 1 and 2.

OK, let’s look under the hood.

Dodge Charger/Challenger Scat Packages

Scat Package 1 opens up the breathing of the Charger and Challenger’s available 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with a Mopar cold-air intake system and a Mopar cat-back exhaust system. You also get an engine calibration optimized for the upgrades, along with a Scat Package 1 hard badge for the rear window.

Scat Package 2 beefs up the HEMI V-8 with a Mopar performance camshaft, heavy-duty pushrods and a tie-bar kit for the cylinder heads. There’s also a new engine calibration to maximize the power from the upgraded engine. And a Scat Package 2 hard badge – you know where that goes.

Scat Package 3 gives the Charger and Challenger a real push, particularly for those who like to run their cars down the local drag strip. The heart of this package is a new set of cylinder heads where the ports have been CNC machined to enlarge them for more flow. Adding to the extra flow is a set of tubular headers with high flow catalysts. Finally, Mopar’s engineers have developed a unique engine calibration that wrings the most out of this setup. A Scat Package 3 hard badge signals that there’s something special under the hood.

Here’s a bonus for Dodge Challenger fans: All three Scat Packages are compatible for use with the new “Shaker” hood package.

Dart Scat Packages

Now, let’s look at the Scat Packages for the Dart, which build upon the available 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder engine.

Scat Package 1 feeds the Tigershark engine with a Mopar cold-air induction kit. The upgrade list also includes a set of Mopar performance slotted brake rotors and performance brake pads, a short-throw shifter and the Scat Package 1 hard badge.

Scat Package 2 fits the Dart with a high-flow cat-back exhaust system and new engine control calibration to take advantage of the better breathing and premium octane fuel. There’s also a Scat Package 2 hard badge.

Scat Package 3 focuses on the Dart’s chassis with a Mopar big brake kit that includes stainless steel brake lines, a performance suspension with adjustable springs and struts, and front and rear performance sway bars. And the Scat Package 3 badge.

Now that you know about the Scat Packages, what do you think?
