    Last week news broke of the 1,032 horsepower Hennessey HPE1000 package for the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and now the Hellcat Charger can be added to the list. The monster twin turbo, triple charging upgrade package comes in at a heavy price of $55,000.

    This leaves us to question if the upgrade is worth that price tag. A good reliable performance shop can get customers over 1,000 ponies at a fraction of the cost. Of course, not everyone has access to a good performance shop so the upgrade just may be worth the price of admission to massive HP.

    What say you?

    Wouldn't it be simpler to use a bigger blower, rather than running both a blower and two turbos, sounds complicated and a lot of plumbing...

    upper/lower pullies, headers, air box, PCM, tune, drive shaft, crankshaft pinning...

    quicker, better running and a whole lot less complicated

    sounds like a whole lot of expense for a couple floor mats, stickers and maintenance headaches

    Over a thousand hp is awesome, but I'm still getting used to 707hp!!:):)

    I bet your 707hp car can beat Hennessey's 1000+hp car at the track. His cars never track as good as his HP claims...He caters to the rich and stupid.

    Hennessey is a joke lmfao. Google him then do a quick 180 in the opposite direction.

    I don't think I'd spend that type of money.

    Just get another Hellcat with the money (finance the rest I guess) and you'll have yourself 1414 HP's.
