Had the itch for speed a few months after I sold my FBO E85 GTR. Ended up grabbing a Hellcat. Still planning on getting back into a GTR to daily when the time is right.

Anyway the kitty has been a blast so far. Just started installing parts for spring! Will add more photos/dyno/time slips in the coming months. Shooting for 10's stock power then will go from there.

Beautiful car. My friend had one. I just love the sound of the supercharger whine. What are your thoughts compared to the GTR?

Is it stock or 900+ power like the title says?

Congrats. Although not sure why somebody would go from a gtr to a challenger.

I think that is the goal since a stock hellcat is in the 700 to 720 hp range from what I have read.

 

900 HP on a rear wheel drive car will be an exciting and crazy ride.

Congrats, a ton of fun. Love my hellcat. Such an easy platform and powertrain is solid. Absolutely awesome at rolling burnouts. Still think the infotainment is the best on any car I’ve owned and I’ve had a ton of brands

Look at the Livernois 1025 package. Simple bolt on and you’ll put down 1000+ rwhp and no issue with trans or motor. Above 1100 you’ll start slipping and there are not a lot of great solutions out there imho. Software gets finicky and doesn’t like to shift.

As long as you can get traction, need to run an 18” to really hook on the street, will run 9’s and trap in the 140’s.

I run widened 20” rear PK’s with a MT ET SS and they hook great on a roll. From a dig, I mentioned they are awesome at rolling burnouts.

Locally Mike @ New Era has done a ton of them and he built my vette and he and his team is knowledgeable and reasonable.

I just picked the wife up an NSX and wow what an awesome car.

Thank you everyone!  :) Been pretty caught up with work/life.

 

The Hellcat is a much different beast than the GTR. The power being sent to 2 wheels feels violent compared to my old FBO E85 GTR and is a TON of fun.

I know spinning isn't winning but i'm planning to set the car up right for digs in mexico and on the strip.

 

Supercharger vs. turbo..the whine is cool but still prefer the powerband/noise of turbos. Both are amazing vehicles that deserve their reputations. Not to mention gapping cars that cost way more than the average Joe can afford.. Love em' equally so far, if i could have both at the moment GTR would be for circuit racing and the Hellcat for the Highway/Drag strip.

Currently the car is pretty much stock with a Carbon intake, Magnaflow cat-back, Carbon driveshaft, Diff brace, BWoody End links, and 17" Drag pack on MT ET Street R's.

Looking to get baseline #'s and a bit of seat time on the new wheel/tire setup before installing the rest of the parts.

 

I will be going with Dusterhoff Tuning for a remote 93 and E85 tune. Need all the sauce i can get to compete around here  :ph34r: Should run 9's @ 140+mph. There are a few cats running 8's @ 150+ this year with unopened blocks/transmissions using FBO+ a ported blower or nitrous. Impressive platform for sure. Most of the aftermarket parts don't have added GTR tax too which is very nice.

Dan,

 

How much power can the stock engine block and parts handle?

Dan,

 

How much power can the stock engine block and parts handle?

From the research on forums i've done and tuners recommendations - Going past 1000-1100whp/tq is wear things can go south. Belts slip, blowers can lock up, trans gets weird, or worse the engine throws a rod through the block. At that point it's a $10-$15k rebuild for a 426 stroker which is what most go with. 

 

I'm going to be sitting around 900-1000whp/tq and don't plan on running that size pulley too often. Just if i need to set the car on kill. Hopefully the OEM differential survives the torture or i'll need a 9" conversion.

That's a pretty good amount of power for a stock motor.

Dan look up WhipCat he’s down Tim’s way and done quite a few half miles. He can tell you exactly where to stop lol. Motors, trans, chiller packs, etc. done it all.

There is another local one that tips 900ish and runs 9.9 and then the next run an 11 because of the traction. At the track of course on the street, carry some VHT in the trunk like all the rwd hipo do hahah.

Got a few more parts installed during this Quarantine. Everything else is ready to rock. For the 9 second 1000whp package all in $11k said and done. Will have one 93 map and one E85 map (two different pullies) Not bad at all considering i went with a full fuel system/bigger injectors which most do not and stick with a Boost-a-pump.

Really thinking of changing things up from what most owners do and sell the OEM 2.4l S/C to replace with a 4.2L or 4.7L Kenne Bell Mammoth. If i end up going this route will probably do a 426 or 428 stroker in a few years. Plan is to keep the 32k mile motor unopened for now.

So you have to change the pulllies to get the different HP numbers?  How long does that take to change?

Hardest part of the entire process is to pin the crank, which isn’t bad but most do it yourself’ers will let a shop do and rightfully so.

Everyone I know that wants over 1000 goes with the KB. They are great option on the ZL1 as well.

Good luck Dan, they are a blast on the street.

Changing pullies on the Kenne Bell can be done in 3-5 minutes from what they say on their site. For an OEM S/C the thermostat housing is slightly in the way which could make it tricky but have been told it can be done in about 15 minutes at the track. May have to change belts too depending what pulley you swap which could add time.

 

Thanks Dave. Will be a handful on the street but can't wait. Going to speak with the tuner later this week and see what size Kenne Bell is recommended. I believe the OEM Hellcat motor can only handle 20-22psi safely. The 4.9L makes 20psi on the largest pulley offered a 5"  :rambo:
