I love Dodge Ramchargers whether they are racing, mudding or doing burnouts so when I came across this black beauty powered by a 528 cubic inch stroker motor – it was just too awesome to pass up. While some of our Tire Shredding videos show a Mopar muscle car, truck or SUV sitting still as to maximize smoke output, the rolling burnouts performed by this big bad Ramcharger are a thing of beauty.
This Dodge Ramcharger is powered by a 1971 440 cubic inch Mopar big block that has been bored and stroked to 528 cubic inches to make 310 horsepower and 451lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The owner and person who posted the video on YouTube explains that those power numbers were acquired when the truck was running very rich and he believes that another 100 horsepower are possible…although the available power figures are more than enough for this short wheelbase SUV to do one nasty rolling burnout. Interesting, he starts the video by doing a reverse burnout in his Ramcharger but the video really heats up afterwards when he creeps past the camera with the rear tires smoldering.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the 528 big block stroker in this Ramcharger sounds awesome as its doing a huge burnout so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
