    Hey guys, I took out my thermal camera today and decided to take some quick pics of the Hellcat. The camera, in addition to thermal images, also takes RGB images so I created some side-by-sides.

    Interesting thing for me was the vents in the hood are in indeed functional. They had temperatures of over 50 degrees celcius and ambient was 15 degrees celcius. I was also surprised at how relative cool the superchargers was. I drove the car normally for 10 miles.

    The point "SP1" is the measured temperature in the top left. Enjoy! Let me know what you think!

    That's pretty cool. That's what the predator sees when he meets a hellcat.

    Now this is an awesome post! Thanks OP! Didn't realize the coolant reservoir gets that hot...being so close to the intake as well probably doesn't help an open element.
