    Bought the 2016 Charger Hellcat (black / red interior) and the car is AWESOME. It has an uncanny ability to put large grins on the driver's (my) face. Haven't had a chance to get it dyno'd yet but am looking forward to it. Today I put on the K&N cold air intake (claimed ~ 39 HP increase). Can't really tell if it helps with HP but it definitely makes the supercharger whine much more noticeable. Makes me think of Mad Max under hard acceleration.

    Traded in a 2013 ZL1....very glad I did. Never thought I'd use the word "practical" for the Hellcat but it is so much more practical for a family of four than the ZL1. Also it's CLEARLY much quicker....very noticeable difference in acceleration.

    Anyway, glad to see there's a forum for owners.
