The Hive Revived: The Scat Pack Returns After 45 Years

Scat pack group

 

In honor of the 45th anniversary of the legendary “Scat Pack Club” that played a prominent role in Dodge heritage, Dodge and Mopar announced the introduction of new Scat Package performance stage kits for the 2014 Dodge Challenger, 2014 Dodge Charger and 2014 Dodge Dart at the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

 

“The Scat Pack performance philosophy has always been the core of Dodge DNA,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “Bringing back factory stage kits allows Dodge enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles.”

 

Scat Package 1, 2 and 3 kits will be made available for the 2014 Dodge Challenger, Charger and Dart, all at a cost-effective price, allowing enthusiasts to step up performance at their own pace. Each Scat Package kit includes a numbered hard badge associated with its performance stage, so enthusiasts can proudly display the emblem on their vehicle as a badge of honor.

 

The Scat Package performance upgrade kits will be available in the Spring of 2014.

 

5.7L HEMI® Scat Packages

 

Available for both the 2014 Challenger and Charger. Our Scat Packages offer three levels of significant performance boosts to our already powerful 5.7L HEMI® engine.

 

Scat Package 1 achieves a significant horsepower boost through three modifications, including a Mopar cold-air intake to provide increased air-flow into the engine, Mopar cat-back exhaust to free up downstream airflow, and an all-new performance calibrated engine controller, optimized to the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine.

 

Scat Package 2 adds approximately double the horsepower bump and is geared towards the performance enthusiast looking for that competitive edge. In addition to a customized, optimized performance calibration feature tailored for Scat Package 2, a new Mopar performance camshaft works in conjunction with the components of the Scat Package 1 kit to take advantage of improved engine breathing and deliver that additional acceleration advantage.

 

Scat Package 3 takes aim squarely at the competitive enthusiast who is looking for extreme performance and ultimate bragging rights. Gains of more than three-times that of Scat Package 1 are realized with the customized, optimized performance calibration tailored for Scat Package 3, new Mopar performance CNC-ported cylinder heads, Mopar performance camshaft and Mopar hi-flow headers.

 

SCAT PACKAGE 1 5.7-liter  

 

  • “Optimized” engine calibration – tailored to Scat Package 1
  • Mopar cold air intake
  • Mopar cat-back exhaust
  • Scat Package 1 badge

2.4L Tigershark Scat Packages

 

 Our 2.4L Tigershark engine already provides a bold and powerful driving experience in the 2014 Dodge Dart. The Tigershark Scat Packages take compact performance to the next level with three unique levels of performance upgrades.

 
Completing the Scat Package offerings for Dodge at SEMA is the 2014 Dodge Dart GT, powered by a 184 horsepower 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with six-speed manual transmission.

 

The Dodge Dart offering consists of three kits, with Scat Package 1 providing a shot in the arm of performance and handling improvements from Mopar through a cold-air intake, performance brake pads and a new short-throw shifter.

 

The next-level, Scat Package 2 amps up horsepower by providing Dodge Dart owners with a no-nonsense customized engine calibration to work in harmony with a Mopar cat-back exhaust.

 

At the top level, Scat Package 3 provides the ultimate package for those seeking optimal track times. Included is a Mopar big brake kit, including 13-inch vented rotors, four-piston front calipers and stainless steel lines to maintain optimum temperatures during extreme braking maneuvers. Also included is a performance suspension comprising of adjustable springs for ride height, adjustable dampening struts and front and rear sway bars.

 

Mopar modifications extend beyond the Scat Package kits with the dual vented functional aluminum hood, which captures cool air for the Mopar cold-air intake and exhausts hot air to achieve optimal operating temperature.

 

The aero package from the limited-edition Mopar ’13 Dart is imported into the 2014 Dodge Dart, with Mopar side sills, chin splitter and rear diffuser, and a unique new three-piece decklid spoiler to boost downforce. A new exhaust dump with side exhaust helps the engine breathe, and the Dart rides on concept 19 x 8-inch lightweight gloss black wheels, accented with Mopar logo center caps.

  • Mopar cold-air intake
  • Mopar short-throw shifter
  • Mopar performance brakes, including slotted rotors and performance brake pads

    This is awsome guys but i think you are selling short the dart you put a srt4 in an sx2.o you guys need to drop one in the dart like really NEED a dodge dart srt4

  • andrew

    i want hp and tq rating with these packages

  • nlpnt

    I love the show cars’ look on the Challenger and the Charger carries it off well too. But I’d go sleeper with a Dart; no body kit and black rims set up to accept a set of SE plastic wheelcovers.

  • gravy

    Can’t wait to get my stage 3 dart

  • Cuda340

    Very cool for the Scat Pack to return. I had a 1971 ‘Cuda which was part of Plymouth’s Rapid Transit Authority.

  • Michael Klock

    Is this a dealer installed option? How much? and what are the horsepower and torque gains?

    • Christopher DeGidio

      since my dealership is not a registered dealer nor have I asked our new car manager about this I cannot say for sure that it is a factory install. But from the way it seems you can install these things yourself or a preferred mechanic. I can say that dealerships will be selling these products and they will most likely offer to install these parts. As far as how much and power gains your on your own. When you do find this information please be kind enough to post it on here so others know. I;m sure your not the only one pondering these questions?

  • Gary

    Great! Nice look. Apparently, you are adding reasonable power and torque. But where is the 6 speed manual transmission? Come on guys, performance and fun without a true manual… Listen to your performance customers and offer it as an option for these types of performance cars. Frankly, the Charger Road and Track package and the SRT8 should already have the manual as an option. At least offer it for this the stage 2 and 3 packages.

    • ryan

      challenger has a stick shift

  • William Mcneill

    we need the srt4 dart now and I will get……right now

    • Christopher DeGidio

      Yea once they decide to turbocharge the 2.4 instead of the gutless 1.4 We’ll be in business

      • Stephen McCune

        2.4 turbocharger is in process now. They are changing the assembly lines in Dundee MI to start the new 2.4 Turbos.

  • David Holloway

    Will it go on 2012 chargers

    • Christopher DeGidio

      It states 2014 model years! If it will fit is all up to how hard you want to try to make it fit. Goodluck.

  • Zerophnx3

    Dodge is so irritating…Here we are, since the Dart was released SCREAMING “WE WANT A DART!!!!!” And yet they still are dragging their feet…I will make it simple!!!! W-E W-A-N-T A D-A-R-T-S-R-T-4!!!!!!

    I know 5 Soldiers that would purchase today…I make 6!!!!

    • Brandon

      You’ll have to wait till 2017, that’s when release for the DART SRT is stated or so I read online. It’ll be a DART SRT, Not an SRT4 because Dodge is buying the SRT namesake.

  • Austin

    Any word?

  • Nelson Castro

    When will it be made available and will it work on a 2011 Mopar edition? I have already started upgrading mines and was looking at this as an option.

  • dave samuelson

    Seems expensive….for no hp and tq ratings…I can go aftermarket and know what power levels to expect…come on mopar get your stuff together. People need to know how much hp and tq their money will buy

  • augusto Ruiz

    how can you obtain these packages if you already own a 2014 2.4 tigarshark?? biggest question ive had. ima tryna get the intake and that hood too. would like to know

  • Christian Lewellen

    Should have dropped a Hemi in the dart for their scat pack. And how about we bring that dart back to muscle car world. None of this 4 banger crap.

  • Dustin Anderson

    Can We possibly get an Update on when/if The Scat Items will be available for the Dodge Dart or whether or not they’ve decided not to release it. I know a great many Dart owners have been drooling over that hood and waiting patiently for quite some time and we havent heard anything in several months.

  • Ken McKrola

    I have a 2014 Challenger and no where locally knows anything about the SCAT pack, dealerships, performance shops, nobody… Where can I get more info like part #’s and other things I can pass onto the primitives out here?

  • Dart owner

    Once i get the scat pack stage 2 or 3 for my 2014 2.4 dart im get a bolt on turbo and see what kind of performance i can get. I heard these packages will range from 1 to 4 grand
