    Been thinking this myself. Hows the power? Of course by saving 20k you could easily add that much HP.

    Been considering this as an alternative if my Hellcat order doesnt come in... I can get a loaded Scat Pack RIGHT NOW at my local dealership for $38.6k with the employee discount that doesnt apply to the SRT line up.. you can buy a lot of ProChargers for $26k...

    ....... IF you add a ProCharger or other forced-induction system, you lose the drivetrain warranty immediately.
    In addition, you get a LOT more than just some extra horses under the hood with the Hellcat. The entire chassis and drivetrain has been modified to accommodate the extra stress that a boosted powerplant places on the rest of the car (brakes would be $8K alone, plus the suspension, transmission upgrades, and rear-end upgrades that the Hellcat has that aren't on the other trim levels).
    Adding bigger numbers up front usually results in something breaking fairly soon afterward in the items rear-ward of that engine.
    So saying you can (safely) boost the current powerplant for a fraction of the difference in price isn't an "apples to apples" argument.

    Ok, Ill rephrase my statement... a 26k difference can build one hell of a car out of a Scat Pack... but without the warranty... I will probably end up modifying my Hellcat anyway, voiding that warranty...lol!

    Oh I understand completely. That's where I was at with my '09 SRT8 Challenger.
    I wanted to increase the power and strength of the entire driveline. Problem was, by the time I did what I wanted to make it nearly "bulletproof", I would have spent more than I am on the Hellcat - and without that warranty.
    As luck had it, I planned on starting those modifications this coming spring. Instead, Dodge did all of the hard work and calculations for me, and the timing was fortuitous. :)

    I am in the same boat... Ill just let Dodge build it for me... hopefully these production cars perform as well as the pre-production cars.
