    I plan on keeping mine stock. This is going to be a holy grail car at auction some day. I believe the high horsepower gasoline vehicles being offered in the US will disappear within the next five to seven years. Lots of reasons. First and foremost federal mandates on fuel economy. Look at the Corvette Z06. No more 427ci monster with coffee can pistons. The C7 is coming out with this silly motor......lower ci, supercharged and cylinder management. I will keep the C6. My kid will probably end up selling these holy grail cars at auction some day. The idea of a battery powered muscle car lacks appeal!

    Well I'm not sure about how the future holds but I'm sure if electric ever became standard there are electric superchargers and turbo charger technology and motors available in some super cars already. I'm definitely keeping mine stock.

    Once the warranty is up, I might tweak a few things. I have a feeling there will be some cool mods for these beasts in the next few years!;)

    I think 707HP is good enuf, probably will tune the ECM once warranty expires to get above 800HP

    I'm not keeping mine stock, no problem voiding the warranty.

    Stock except for extra rims and tires.
    At least till warranty is up LOL
    I think they will release stage 1,2,3 down the road for the Hellcat for those looking to up the power with factory parts
    Have to see how the car deals with the current power levels, if you can't put the power to the ground there is no point raising HP

    I'm personally gonna wait 3 years for the after market to punch out quality stuff for this HC.. This is a cheap tuner car to mess with Tuning is going to take 2-3 years to crack.
    The warranty is why I bought it sure that the same with many .
    I'm tired of traveling to shops and spending cash hand over fist..
    Been driving a 620 plus rwhp challenger srt for several years now ,and if your not careful it will bite you!!

    How much Hp does one need? Many wont be able to handle the black fob let alone the 700 hp fob.
    All the Hp in the world wont help yah if you cant hook up or know when to use it !

    Going to wait smiling all the way while under warranty.

    Will not keep mine stock. Start off with a smaller blower pulley...then waiting on Kenne Bell or Whipple to come out with a 4.0L supercharger for them. Custom tuning, exhaust mods, intercooler mods, beefed up clutch, beefed up rearend, etc...1000hp daily driver. 9-second grocery getter.
