    I'll throw this up for debate, with the nitrous only car running 10.4 @133 and the E85 & tune car running 10.71 adjusted for DA 10.5, it would seem the nitrous route looks the best for a few reasons, exp the fact the PCM is not touched, debate is on.............................

    No juice.... No e85 either. A little patience and all the bolt ons will come and we will all tune and make 900whp... My future dreams :). 950 on E85

    The number being quoted was 100 shot on the 10.4 car, but I can't confirm it.

    I know that surely you guys have seen this e85 Hellcat with only an upgraded fuel system, tune, driveshaft and it's putting out 886hp at the crank and 753rwhp.

    E85 Challenger Hellcat Drops Almost 900 Horsepower On The Dyno

    I've wanted to convert a few cars to E85 for several years now, problem is there are hardly any stations that have it here. But I've been to other states that have it at every station. A few years ago, there was only 1 station in the Tulsa area, now there are 9, but none really close to home or work. But at least it's on the rise. I may have to get a large tank at home and have it delivered.

    I would like to see what the 753 rwhp E85 car can do at the track before drawing any conclusions.

    The NOS on the 10.48 run was a byproduct of good marketing. Burns Motors received much attention from that run. I do have to say, if they used a 100 shot no one seemed to have any proof.

    That's about 100rwhp increase. You could always add a 100 shot to that as well.. :cool:

    No doubt! The other thing that puzzles me is we now have guys running 128 and even a 129 mph run on pump gas 93 octane in the 1/4 in 400+ DA and the 133 run was in -1200 DA or something crazy like that with 40 degree temps. To me there is a slight possibility that the stars just happened to line up on that run contrary to what many believe. You got to think with guys trapping 127+ in +900 DA that a 133mph run in that -1200 DA is slightly possible.

    I'm trying to see if anybody had any success racing their HC with E85. But no luck so far.

    To answer your question not yet, but there are about 5 cars that have been tuned and modded running in the 900-1000 Hp range just waiting for the weather to get good, I'm thinking March-April as tracks start to re open.
    To up date this thread a bit NYSRT ran a 10.3 using a 150 shot nitrous no tune in some cool air @ Etown 400-500 DA

    I have been 9.93 @ 139 on E85- no nitrous
    I also went 169 at the half mile in Ocala a few weeks ago.
    I think both videos are on Injected Engineering website.
    I have been 10.28 @ 134 on pump gas.

    All of these runs were on factory wheels with MT drag radials and stock gear.i have now ordered 18" Weld wheels and the new MT drag radial because I couldn't get a consistent launch on the 20" wheels.
    We hope to go back to the track later this month.

    Top Cat, I feel like we may be able to run 9.50's in perfect conditions on blower only this spring,but I don't know if the stock maf will allow it.
    What are your thoughts on this, I know you will push the limits.

    Gc, Linda would have run a 9.5 something on her last outing if she didn't get the boot for going to fast, I never had the chance as all they would let me do is 1/8 mile, but yes, I feel the MAF is fine, in fact we are not changing it when we take my car back out this March.
