    how does the hellcat compared to your blown 5.7 or 6.1 or even a 426 2008-2014 challenger?

    Hows the power compare? The drive ability? Off idle and full throttle?

    I always considered putting a big blown motor in my '10 pcp challenger RT but never did. Never drove or road in a modded out blown 3rd generation challenger so how do they compare?

    I put a ProCharger on my 6 speed 5.7 R/T in '09... It was unimpressive to say the least. It was maybe just as fast as my '12 SRT 392 was stock. On 6 psi, the car made 453 at the wheels....meh

    I put a 9p on my 13 rt classic. Plus headers and exhaust. Total spent about 12 k. Total waste of money compared to Hellcat on every level.

    do you think a procharged 392 scat pack would be worth it? 485 up to 685 hp on 7 pounds? My dad is thinking about procharging his scat pack charger. Are they worth it? Reliable? Pain in the ass?

    The boosted 392s run real well... BUT, those stock pistons are NOT boost friendly.

    Agreed. Cast aluminum and that top ring land is not too far down. I wouldn't even go 7psi. 6 max

    My viper certified tech said they are good up to 7. That he wouldn't go past that. He also said since they are a certified procharger retailer/installer that his warranty would still be good.

    I had a Maggie on my 2012 SRT8 392 Challenger...the Hellcat is still night and day faster...I was shocked at how big a difference is was. The Hellcat is still 100whp more totally stock, with a better transmission and better brakes, amongst other things. Interior is also night and day. I was running about 6lbs of boost, and was told not to go any higher on the stock internals of the 392.

    I have a 2011 with a built for blower 392, 10.3 cr forged everything. Valve train is stock. Magi 2300 10 psi boost and the blower is maxed. 623 RWP on the dyno @ 3500' amsl approx 735 at the crank. Have about 16-18000 miles on it. M6 car and it is plenty fast now. It will hang with a GTR to well past 100 mph, have not come across hellcat to test it against... Suspect the 8 speed would be hard to beat. Fun to drive but squirrelly if you are not careful, boost comes in very hard at 3200 rpm and can break the tires loose easily in the transition to boost in the first 3 gears. Overall I love it, but the AWD option on the HC has me interested.

    The biggest difference is the transmission hands down.
    The HC A8 is a beast. I had a SHR War Viking in my 2009 and it Sucked. Total POS.
    The A8 is a huge upgrade in my book and big difference.

    I thought those at SEMA were non-hellcat Challengers, and they already have AWD non-hellcat Chargers. Something about the AWD system can't take the torque.
