Firstly,

I hadn’t ever been a DODGE person, I’ve beefed up Camaros and Mustangs…then I got into Mercedes AMG and BMW…then Infiniti, I was sold on the AWD and stoplight to stoplight quickness. Dodge had dropped the ball for a while in the late 90s and early 2Gs…Intrepids were gross…lolololol AND front wheel drive 🤮

….but….

WTF!!!!

Why didn’t anyone mention that the resurgence of Mopar Muscle was a real thing?!?!?

I was looking for a 7 seater (I got kiddos ⚽) and my X5 had been reliable, fast and had great drivability so I was leaning that way or Infiniti QX80. But last year was weird for the car market and lots of stuff just wasn’t available. I expanded my search 👀 and I came across a low mileage 2019 Durango R/T …blk on blk on blk… tow package, captain seats in the middle row…5.7L 360+ hp …well made vehicle.

I was surprised. I figured, “throw some FLOWMASTERS” on it and it’ll work. Boy has it ever! I love this suv, I can only imagine what the HELLCAT version is like. My only knock is I’d have liked the BREMBO brake setup (any info on conversion would be appreciated)

Fast forward one year and I consider getting an older muscle car to scoot around town in… I’m thinkin ‘68 Mercury Cougar, ‘73 Maro, ‘73 Caprice Classic with the 454 (DONK) or ‘67-68 Mustang with the engine swapped newer 5.0 and digital dash upgrade…I’d have taken a Mustang Cobra 🐍 or Grand National (honorable mention)

My budget was about 35k…I shop online like most people and I’m a weirdo so I click on random crap..so I saw a CHALLENGER SCATPACK (one had parked next to me at the mall and it wasn’t really on my radar then) so I click on the Scat and I become interested instantly.

I call the dealership and I’m literally ready to swipe my card but the douche makes it difficult so I move on. I find a Hellcat and I think it’s impractical, but whatever 😂 I click on it and it’s outside my price range but the finance manager calls me and promises to get me in it. He does, but I hate the terms so I gave up.

I had clicked another link and the dealership called..since I was already in the frying pan 🍳 I rolled the dice…the terms were outside my comfort zone but the dealership delivered it to my job the next day. I’m so happy I didn’t get a SCAT (no offense, scats are lit 🔥 af) I just didn’t realize the notoriety associated with HELLCATS

MIND BLOWN 🤯

and the car is immaculate. 2016 6-speed 4400 miles 😜 GO MANGO

and the power😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

most I’ve ever had and it’s DOPE and surprisingly drivable

I’m really stoked

Welcome to the fam!
Congrats on a great car.
there may be a Cat/02 sensor recall on that car. If it has not been done DONTdo it

Stop lol no one says jawn outside of philly lol. But that’s good, just making sure you get to enjoy the car. Huge hype about these cars, and they’re also the #1 stolen car in the US
lolololol

Thanks bro 😎

I’m only looking to upgrade the Uconnect jawn

and add some flowmasters 🤪🤪😜

good looking out on the recall issue, what’s the deal on it?
I think early Cats were borderline passing emissions so the recalled the Cat con and 02sensors. They also retuned the car.
it slowed them down. Look on this site there is a ton of info on it
