    Hey guys I am new to this forum, I just got my 2016 hellcat and I want to upgrade everything. I will need some pointers as I have never done something like this before. I am thinking of getting the following upgrades:


    GTHAUS - Meisterschaft Performance Exhaust Systems ::: ver 3.0

    Hellcat 6.2L HEMI ATI Overdriven Super Damper - Modern Muscle Xtreme

    Hellcat 6.2L HEMI Single Stage Nitrous kit by Nitrous Outlet

    1300cc HEMI Fuel Injectors by Injector Dynamics

    aFe Momentum GT Cold Air Intake for the Dodge Challenger Hellcat

    Hellcat L4 Dual Pump Fuel System by Fore Innovations - Modern Muscle Xtreme

    How much HP gain can I expect If i add these parts ? Do you guys recc anything else ? Should I remove anything from that list?

    - Thanks in advance

    Race gas and the smaller upper pully, with some slicks. Tune it and hold on.

    Exhaust and aFe aren't worth the money. Cat delete pipes with HHP race gas tune, upper and lower pulley, injectors. 180 stat and Brisk plugs.

    thank you for all your responses. Really glad I found this forum with like minded hellcat owners!

    Okay Linda I will check that website out and may give them a call....I have not purchased anything yet, I need to consult with someone who knows what their doing and can give me some good advice. I for sure want a NOS system thrown in there...does NOS take a toll on your cars engine ?

    Calling them is the #1 Best Method.

    Most guys are using a small shot of NOS without any engine problems.

    My HC is a few weeks away from getting delivered. I also want to do some mods. I first asked myself what kind of gas am I wanting to use. For me, there are a few pumps not terribly far from me that have 93 octane. This means that my car will stay local or near by as if I were to travel with it, I doubt there would be pumps with 93 or even E85 or race fuel. This was my first consideration to think about.

    I spoke with Josh's shop and they explained to me that if you do the damper you are going to need to run either race gas or E85 which crossed that off my list as I don't want to worry about where and when to fill up. For me 93 seems the best for my needs. Also E85 tunes from what I have learned require an HP tuner, Joshs' outfit uses Diablo sport that does not tune for E85 fuel.

    E85 gas as I understand is not always consistent in the way its blended, so some folks install a sensor to keep tabs on it and adjust the fuel with additives as needed. Also E85 fuel will give you a lot less miles per gallon so more fuel is needed if you drive it a lot- But since money is no option, you may very well want to buy a tanker and store it in a warehouse and simply use that for your personal gas pump. And refill it as needed.

    The exhaust on these cars are really well engineered so most folks do not see a lot of advantage of putting long tube headers on them - but since you have all the money to spend - why not?

    E85 and Race gas as I understand requires you to change out the injectors and do some other mods- Ive not checked into the Nitrous but it sounds like fun.

    One thing that is important for me is to look at the dependability and the drivability of the car given the uses I want it for. Many folks and shops tune cars, but I do not want to experiment or re invent the wheel. For me, I want a proven set up that works and works well without issues. Josh and a few others have pioneered the way and have been hard at collecting data and tweaking their tunes all for the betterment of the end product. This is worth extra in my book. I don't want someone guessing or trying something that "may work better".

    Please post images and details of your build as and when its done-

    Thanks and good luck with your build.
