Default R/T or SRT-8???

i am trying to decide between a R/T or SRT-8 Model. think the Police Package is basically a R/T. but it it seams like most the aftermarket support is the 2005-07 R/T. but i wasn't sure if it was true or not. i been looking places like willwood brakes. haven't looked up tuners yet but i was planing too. but i may just go with a edelbrock supercharger as opposed to a tuner. i find it funny that a edlbrock supercharger is ove 2 times as expensive of a average R/T. as much as i love the SRT-8 the buy price is a lot higher and i'm not finding much support for it aftermarket wise which surprises me actually.

my fav version of the magnum has to bee the 2008 SRT-8, it looks like a mean machine.

To buy? As a comparison to a police car? You haven't actually phrased a question lol. Pursuit package is basically an SXT with an R/T drivetrain and suspension, except for bigger sway bars and larger diameter rotors in the back. There is a plethora of aftermarket support for every V8 version LX from 05 on up. Whether you just tune it or supercharge it, a tuner will still be involved (have to custom tune the engine for the big air pump you will have just installed on it).
