    Dose anybody know if when the car is new and starts to get a few miles on it 100, 200 miles and so on up to 500 Miles that maybe the computer starts to open power up ?
    The reason I ask is it seems when I took my Hellcat out today, I went over 200 miles and it seems to me the supercharger whine is now louder and more noticeable.
    I do have a Green filter in the air box but I have run it before with it. Yesterday and now today the whine seemed louder, maybe the computer allows more power as the first few mile are put on ?

    I was thinking the same thing as the computer is probably sensing real world conditions and making adaptations to the break-in procedure. ie Too high an RPM before the required break-in miles and it slows you down to make sure you don't break the car. I was also thinking that Uconnect is transmitting your driver habits back to SRT and Dodge to make other conditional changes to the Hellcat as it reports our driving habits. I know this sounds a little paranoid or big brother like, but it is fun to imagine. LOL and it is possible.

    Answer to your question--unknown-- these 6.2 blower engines are somewhat more questions than answers. By late summer this year a whole bunch more info will be out there. We hope.

    Could be possible also just the engine opening up and breakin in.

    I believe it to be possible, every other charger 2011-2014 I have had, my brother has had 3, and my buddy has one, after they got some miles on them, it seemed like a different car, more power,, in a good way, enough so they brought it to my attention, so I think, and hope the hellcat is the same way

    I noticed that the Supercharger isn't winding as long as a lot of the youtube videos I watched while there was snow on the ground.
    Of course the car rapidly climbs rpm's and it's shift time. I guess I'll live with the short whine and take the rapid acceleration :D

    I don't think the computer effects supercharger whine, though it may effect max boost at the higher rpms (10 vs 11 pounds) in certain gears.

    The supercharge whine is pretty elusive-really depends on throttle, gear, load, etc. It does get louder all of the time if your pull the rear hood seal though.

    yes. I removed it in an attempt to reduce hood flex at speed as air bulids up and has no where to go... It worked a little
