    Not literally :)

    I'm an avid GM guy, love the current pony cars. Current car is a 2011 SS making 640whp with your bolt ons and blower. I'm in the market for a new car this summer and I'm not a big fan of the ZL1 styling even with the Z06 platform. So I've turned to Mopar for answers!

    Love the platform and styling so I just really need to get down to the nitty gritty of reasonable limitations of the car/platform, and the actual support number of reputable resources. (Tuners, Aftermarket Mods)...

    Goals:
    16 HC - A8
    1/4 - Mid 10's minimum @ 138+ mph minimum
    Power - 780whp +
    Budget - 30k in initial mods

    After reading through 2 pages of builds and 15 pages of performance pages I've got a lot of information. Most of it was scattered so if I happen to repeat something please save the "go search" comments.

    Must Do's ... DR's, 309 Gears, DSS Driveshaft.
    My build will have to be on pump 93 gas as there isn't E85 options avaliable in my area and race fuel isn't realistic at this time as my car will see the track 4-5 times a year.
    I've only seen one or two builds mention running meth, why is that?
    If not for octane at least for cooling purposes.
    I also haven't seen the mention of any cam builds? I don't have to dive into the benefits of a cam but this is surprising to me.

    With the maximum stock boost of 15 psi, with bolt ons and a tune on 93 through the A8, what numbers can be expected 'ballpark' ? Is there a fast list some where on the site that list modifications ?

    The mention of small NOS shots are often passed around, but what is defined as a small shot of nitrous?

    Tq management through the A8... This is a problem for all brands of cars now it seems. 900whp looks to be the barrier; a barrier I'd be just happy to stop at haha... Are these high HP builds all supporting nitrous?

    What are the power limitations for A8 transmission? Any issues noted from the higher HP guys?

    Outside of HHP what other shops are a good resource for the Mopar community?
    And a list of the top vendors and or go to aftermarket sites? I know some are better than others I'll take the private messages to not upset the powers to be on the site.

    10.5s should be pretty easy drag radials, 3.09, pulley tune should get you there.

    i copied this from someone back in February:

    1. Dodge hellcat goes 10s on radials and weather conditions ...
    2.drive shaft one piece is a must...
    3...stock fuel pump has built bap to feed ihi
    And half inch fuel inlet on rail
    4. Stock all seasons get flat spots and cause vibrations
    5. The m6 cars always Dyno little higher numbers
    6. The cranks are not pinned
    7. The front brakes make sounds at low speed like bad cv joint symptoms
    8. Car does not go in neutral by using shifter, Tranny lock had to be pulled located on side of shift wit red ribbon
    9. best street able pulley upgrade is 2.85
    10. 3.09 rear is direct swap and 1-2 tenths gain on 1320 times
    11. Fans don't go on until about 213 degrees
    12. Stock air box just as good as aftermarket no gains to be made
    13. Nitrous and hellcat just works
    14. Stock spark plugs is iruim gapped 0.31 -0.34 from factory
    15. Smaller rear rims requires end links swap
    16.a few body panels not perfect
    17. For e85 conversion only injectors need to be swapped and re tuned
    18. Ati lower pulley adds 2-3 lbs
    2.85 is 4 lbs
    19. Pump gas your limit on safe power is about 800
    20. The block and heads are fantastically designed
    21.. The factory tune is so on point
    22. The wideband makes small corrections to make the car run efficient
    23. Colder it gets faster the cat becomes
    24. Headers or exhaust isnt best mod power to dollar
    25. How much horsepower does it take to get 9.99 or faster depending weather (8%%- and up

    Great info, thanks for the replies. When the boost is maxed (15#), are any shops adding meth? @HHP?

    think safe limit someone said is 18psi, need tune to achieve. it is just a matter of pulley size and tune.

    That's why I pose the questions haha.. Reading through I seen several members state 15# is the max recommended on pump 93.
    Boost isn't the end all... That's also why I asked about cams, as they usually drop boost levels. So if you do have the fuel you have more wiggle room before max spinning the blower.

    I love the car but don't get to drive it hardly ever. Married, work from the house, 2 kids and 1 on the way, so I'm hardly ever out driving alone
