Challenger SRT Hellcat
I saw this posted around facebook.They should call it the Warranty Killer. At least it's not a Mustang...I guess.
Kenne Bell Hellcat Blower Kit Takes the Challenger Scat Pack to 901hp - Torque News
True my super bee to get it past 670HP was gonna cost me $16k with some reforging done to the engine parts and to get it past 800HP was gonna cost me about $37,000Although interesting, there's no way the internals will handle that much power without a major overhaul. The driveline won't be able to handle that either...figure a change to the driveshaft, axles, and transmission. In the end, this will cost WAY over $7000. Hell, the blower I had on my previous 392 was $7000 alone. After other modifications, I was up near 13k. At that point, I was around 630hp at the crank. Could I have gotten more...yes, but not without detonation and risk to blow the internals of the engine. I inquired about simply changing the pulley and retuning it (which are simple upgrades), but to do so safely I would have had to forge the bottom end, change to 1000hp axles, amongst other things. That quickly shot the cost up by thousands and was not worth it with the Hellcat coming out. For them to say $7000 and BAM you get 901hp is unrealistic and any hardcore gearhead will know that. They can't even tune the car yet LOL Just my .02.......
P.S.- I would love to see what the 4.2L blower looks like....that's a lot of displacement! Another added cost would be repairs when things start breaking and are not covered under warranty...another reason why I went the Hellcat route!
Ditto!!!!No matter what they do to a scat pack It will be a hell cat. and in 10 yrs it will still just be a scat pack.. Im not knocking the scat pack, I was going to buy one. For the $$ they are hard to beat. BUT i knew deep down that I would not be happy when I ran up on a HC.
