The Dodge Charger is one of the most iconic muscle vehicles ever produced by the American automaker. Despite the fact that they are already extremely strong, Westen Champlin, an automotive enthusiast on YouTube, seeks to supercharge a 1968 model named Tater, which has been sitting for over 35 years. Westen has had his 1968 Dodge Charger for a while and has decided to increase its horsepower to see what he can get out of it. He equips the Charger with an 8V-71 supercharger, which Westen considers to be one of the best inventions ever.
Tater will be put to the ultimate test to see if he can make larger donuts and burnouts than before. The team begins by removing the old supercharger, which is still in good working order, and replaces it with the super-heavy new supercharger. Westen then installs a Holley 2×4 Sniper EFI system with a fuel injector to naturally aspirate the supercharger, which fits well. It now fits and functions as well as the supercharger after four days and 31 efforts to correct the backfires from the fuel injector.
Westen starts the ignition after a superb job of kitting out the 1968 Dodge Charger, despite a brief fire, and is so pleased with the results that he screams in joy. So much so that it adds to the thrill of the test.
Westen completes the task by adding a large scoop, and the test begins. He admits that the supercharger makes the Dodge Charger extremely hazardous, at the same time a lot of fun.
Although the Dodge Charger began backfiring more than normal when doing donuts, it sure did looked amazing at the same time. It fills the entire street with smoke and draws the attention of the authorities. The team takes it out to the countryside in order to maximize the supercharger’s capabilities. It does a few more donuts and makes Westen as pleased as he hoped his new Dodge Charger feature would make him. Westen has a few troubles supercharging the 1968 Dodge Charger, but in the end, he has a lot of fun with it, which is exactly what he was going for.
