Dodge Challenger Hellcat vs. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

April 30th, 2015

This video clip captures the elusive Hellcat taking on a much less powerful opponent in the Corvette Stingray. With 707-horsepower “right out of the box” the Hellcat is about all that one could hope for from a production vehicle. The Stingray is underpowered by SRT8 standards but it offers a greater degree of performance handling, a lower center of gravity, and a lighter gross vehicle weight. Sure enough, the lighter and more nimble Stingray gets the hole shot on the big Hemi powered Dodge and holds its own nearly to the eighth-mile marker. Unfortunately for those of us who are Read More

Hellcat e85 Conversion Increased Horsepower Reduced Emissions

Everyone knows that the 2015 Dodge Hellcat is built for speed and performance with a factory horsepower rating of 707 (at the crankshaft). What you may not know is this: Serious Horsepower (SHP) out of Houston, Texas, is in the business of making high-performance machines (such as the Hellcat) produce even more horsepower while running on cleaner e85 fuel. In this video, the factory Hellcat posted 672 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque (at the rear wheels) burning 93-octane fuel. After the car was expertly modified by SHP, using HP Tuners 2.25 Software, a Kenne Bell Boost-a-Pump, and upgraded fuel Read More

BMW M5 Vs. Dodge Charger Hellcat

April 17th, 2015

What would happen if a luxury sedan like an E39 (1998-2003) BMW 5-Series went up against the almighty 707-horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat in a rolling drag race? That depends upon whether or not the BMW is an M-Sport with a lighter turbocharged 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine from a M3 Coupe. I am not sure what kind of tuning was necessary to push the M5 past the Hellcat in terms of performance horsepower output. Whatever modifications have been performed on this opulent European four-door, they prove more than adequate to dispense of this Mopar, in short order. I would like to see this Read More
