It's quicker, not faster.

They did trap 113 mph with the 6-speed, so it's not as much of a difference as you think. Almost all of the difference is from a dig, and this advantage for the...

Good point overall, and I was in the same place a couple years ago and bought new because I saw the greatest value there.

As far as the new Scat Packs de-valuing the older SRT8s, I don't think we...

Indeed. I only put Michelins on my trucks, and they last for YEARS. It's tough to justify their car tires...if you have fun with your car anyway. I usually go through a set every other year or so,...

Your numbers look a lot like what I see, as far as when something is wrong, I would say when you don't see building oil pressure when you ramp up rpms or even very low oil pressures below 30 while...

I love having a sunroof :) But for those moments at the track when I have a helmet on, I sure do miss those two inches. If you plan on spending a lot of time at the track and are over say...6 feet...

I see, IMO in your case Trevor going to a coating would be overkill because your car is already probably all the way clean and you have plenty of products to keep it that way :)

Indeed, and the C-Quartz finest should be all anyone uses anymore, that is what I have on my car. I did my wife's Lexus SUV a year and a half ago with just the regular C-quartz brew, it's still fine...

What do you mean when you say seal it? That's essentially what C-Quartz or Opti-coat is. Then you can polish/wax the coating/sealant from time to time for an extra pop. This has been my experience...

I went with C-Quartz Pro as it works better than opticoat for dark colors, looks shinier and deeper. Most of my plastic trim is opti-coated and my wheels are opti-coated too. I did put X-pel ultimate...

You are right, there should be a considerable bump from those mods. A couple thoughts though, 0-60 is not much of a measurement, and also the EVIC can't be trusted for exact measurements.

What...

Ok, I see, but I think the one problem with this - at least initially - is that all of the Hellcats and even probably the first 2-3 waves of them will sell right away even with a mark up.

I think it's widely agreed upon that the Barton unit is superior to Hurst, but I disagree with the above poster that says the Hurst is no better than stock. It's still a bit sloppy, but the increased...

The 392 coupled to the 6-speed is super-satisfying to drive! If you like to be engaged in the driving experience there are few cars sweeter :) Good luck on your search.

It will be cheaper of course to upgrade your 392, but your mods are worth almost nothing on the back end whereas the hellcat has a much higher entry point and a much higher resale point too. The...

Again, I'm talking about naturally aspirated motors - no blower or turbo. Also, on a dyno, the 392 about makes the same power as the 427 Chevy, it's very close, and I think the 392 hits its torque...

It's the temperature at which the fans come on that you can adjust, not the speed the fan spins at.

While some people do get codes, I think that's because they do not use the Jet 180. I've never heard of someone throwing a code with the JET, it initially spikes close to 190 degrees before it...

Indeed. While is may in reality be underrated, it's only by a little...like 5-10 hp. Same with the SRT, only slightly underrated. Don't be so pre-occupied with HP anyway, it lives in an equation. ...
