    Just bought my first Mopar car (2015 B5 Blue Challenger Hellcat) and I must say it is a beast right off the showroom floor! I have owned a '14 1000rwhp ZL1 Camaro, '09 750rwhp C6 [GALLERY=][/GALLERY]ZR1 Corvette, '07 631rwhp N/A C6 Z06, and a '14 Shelby GT500 - this will probably be the car where I won't have too spend a lot of mod money to be happy...Definitely a believer thus far!

    Mods So Far:

    Under hood Painting
    Window Tint
    Black Lug Nuts
    Rear 1/4" Wheel Spacers

    Future Mods:

    Long Tube Headers
    Full Exhaust
    Air Intake
    Dyno/Street Tuned
    Drag Radials

    Looks great. I like all the little touches. Engine covers look real good too.

    Wow B5... looks really sharp... Congrats on the Cat :cool:. You've had some really nice cars so you can make an objective comparison... would be interested in your opinion of the Hellcat engine. ;)

    Hemi Rocket - I think the 6.2L Hemi is rock solid...the main reason I bought this car is because the short block is factory forged, so increasing the boost will be totally safe. My '09 750rwhp ZR1 was my fastest car on the street, and my A8 Hellcat feels almost as strong in stock form - which is totally mind blowing to me! Dodge/Chrysler totally change the HP Wars competition with this car. Plus, the 2.4L Supercharger has some room to make more boost with a proper tune, unlike the C7 Z06 and its 1.7L which is pretty much maxed out from the factory. I only see Ford with the '17 Shelby GT500 as being our main competition in "off the showroom floor" mode.

    hellcat1 - Yes, I painted the Throttle Body and Plastic Valve Covers Chrysler Hemi Orange. I am debating wether or not I will be painting the Supercharger B5 Blue?

    Congrats!

    Good looking HC! Challengers look great in Blue. Traded in my 2010 Challenger R/T in Deepwater Blue that I really liked
