Default what do cops have under the hood???

I've always wondered, what kind of mods do cops have in their rides? I'm always hearing on the TV show COPS, "...if this person thinks he's going to outrun a police vehicle, he's got another thing comming...".

Anyone know what they've got under the hood or what kind of hp they're putting out?

If it was just the car you were going up against, one on one, i am sure most of us can out run one, but it isnt whats under the hood you are going up against.. the radio and the officers ability to call for backup screws you over every time... you cant beat the radio..

It's all bullsh*t...
The only cop car with a vette motor would be a corvette.

You have to figure that the budgets towns get for stuff like police enforcement goes to stuff like BP vests, Officers salaries, $3000 in car cameras, etc...

Nothing real special. The Crown Vic's have special transmissions to take the abuse and chipped ecu's (that's all P71 Police Interceptor really means).. Can't mention top speeds though.. I can say they are quite a bit torquier than stock.
Chevy Mailbu's have better air flow than stock... Again, all the bells and whistles to take the abuse that officers inflict.

Dodge Durango SXT's.. These I know all about.. Oil/tranny coolers already stock.. Chipped ECU's, cannot use premium fuel.. Reworked handling (Stock durango's too mushy).. Bigger radiators..

Any other pursuit vehicle (Vette's Camaro's) are all classified to my knowledge.. You'll know when it pulls up next to you.

It's not the cars themselves I'd be worried about personally.. If I were a civilian trying to run from them...

The only corvette engines are in corvettes and only vette's... Too pricey and not too reliable.

A cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks.

Aside from the stronger tranny, and suspension the only other thing i've heard they have is better engine cooling.

Chips...a lot of cops have modified chips that crank out more power.

My friend owns a ex-officer's vehicle that he purchased for. Said the mod chip was still inside Click the image to open in full size. Other then that I'm sure above mentioned mods are done as well.
