Fast Facts:
  • The story of this car begins in the early 80’s, when Lee Iacocca decided it was time to spice up the Mopar lineup with some fresh performance offerings. Turbocharging was wildly gaining popularity in motorsport, and carmakers were pushing their engineering and development departments to tame this power adder for street use – all for the sake of profiting on the Turbo craze. Iacocca knew he had to go turbo, or go home
  • But Iacocca also knew that slapping a “Turbo” badge on a Chrysler wasn’t going to be enough to win buyers over – he needed a name that people were familiar with. Iacocca decided to capitalize on his relationship with Carroll Shelby, a man he worked with extensively at Ford during his Mustang years. Initially, all Iacocca wanted was for Shelby to take their Dodge Charger and enhance the steering, handling, and styling – Chrysler would develop their own turbo engine in house. Known as the “Turbo I” engine, this 2.2 SOHC Turbo motor was paired with Shelby’s handling and styling modifications to produce the 1983 Dodge Shelby Charger
  • In 1986, Shelby purchased 1000 Dodge Chargers to modify on his own. He began fiddling with the engine, adding a forged steel crankshaft, forged steel rods, and boosting power output from 148hp to 175hp. This new engine, dubbed “Turbo II”, was put into regular production by Chrysler the following year in the 1987 Shelby Daytona Turbo Z
  • However, Shelby’s marketing contract with Chrysler was due to expire in a few years, and with the threat of high-horsepower twin turbos coming from Japan in the early 90’s, Chrysler knew they had to turn this engine into a real powerhouse to stay relevant. The time has come to make the switch to a DOHC cylinder head – it was time to call Lotus!
  • Lotus, who was still finishing up development of the DOHC heads for the LT5 ZR1 Corvette, was enlisted by Chrysler to develop a DOHC head for their 2.2L “Turbo II” engine. The resulting engine, labeled “Turbo III”, was Chrysler’s first ever DOHC engine
  • The Lotus designed head and valvetrain took advantage of both the turbo and the unusually long stroke (3.62″) to produce an exceptionally wide power band. Peak torque occurs a whopping 3200 RPM below peak horsepower RPM. This allows the Daytona to make ample torque around town (2800 RPM peak torque), while the overhead cam setup allows the Daytona to make peak horsepower at 6000 RPM, revving all the way to 6700 RPM. It put out a healthy 224 horsepower – an impressive 102 hp per liter – and it powered the all-new 1992 Daytona IROC R/T
  • 1992 was also the year the Daytona took over the Camaro as the official car of IROC racing. This granted Dodge the authority to use the label “IROC” in their model naming schemes, just like Chevrolet did with the Camaro for many years
  • IROC stands for the “International Race of Champions” – a race where the top drivers from Indy Car, NASCAR Winston Cup, NASCAR Busch, World of Outlaws, etc meet together and compete in identical cars to see who is the best driver. In 1992, all drivers competed in heavily modified Dodge Daytonas
Key Model Year Changes:
  • First year of the IROC R/T, which was produced in 1992 and 1993
  • First year of the Turbo III engine with Lotus heads
  • The following year (1993) saw air conditioning as standard. New colors include Emerald Green and Electric Blue. Only about 180 IROC R/T’s were produced in ’93
  • 1993 was the final year of the IROC R/T, and final year with IROC affiliation
