    Never confuse HHP with HPE.

    HHP is correct...

    I don't know about fans at 214. Seems it can hang at 204 pretty good. I'd say there is a low speed somewhere around that number.

    Maybe Top Cat can find out from the tuner what the stock temps are for low and high speed fan

    So #3 means you don't need to install an aftermarket BAP to run e85?

    This list has several flaws in it.

    And a few no-brainers that aren't exclusive to the Hellcat. Such as: "Colder it gets faster the cat becomes", that applies to every car in the world lol.

    Only when more boost ... because of transmission when shifts afr goes little leaner but that's why you hire the right tuner to get right job done

    That's true with the ambient. We'll see this summer. I did Creep along in a long multi mile highway accident backup on Sunday and it ran way cooler than my 08 Bee ever did stock. It was about 78 out. Was watching the heat come out of the extractor vents. The Bee would have been at least 220, before the t-stat and tuner fan speed change.

    Of course you can, and you will with any F/I car, not just the Hellcat.

    But F/I aside, all cars perform noticeably better in cooler weather.
