2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat: The Most Powerful Sedan In The World! - Ignition Ep. 122
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Tire Rack, Carlos Lago tests the
most powerful sedan money can buy: The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Much
like the Challenger Hellcat, this Charger packs an astonishing 707 hp from
its supercharged 6.2-liter V-8. It is as absurd as it is functional, thanks
to its two additional doors and comfortable backseat. But to find out if
this sedan can do more than leave two long stripes of burnt tire for miles,
we’ll need to run it through our standard set of tests, including a Hot
Lap with Randy Pobst. Does the Charger Hellcat offer the same magic that we
loved in the Challenger? Find out on this episode of Ignition! @CarlosLago

2010 Challenger Exhaust Comparison
In this video, you will hear a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with the 5.7L Hemi
V8 with two different Exhaust systems
In the first part, it's the stock Exhaust with a Mopar Cold air Intake and
Diablosport Predator tune set to the Perf.91 CAI tune. Keep in mind, this
stock Exhaust is already past it's
break-in period of ~1500 miles, it was at about 2000 so it was fully broken
In the second part of this video you will hear the same car, with the same
intake and same Diablosport tune but with the following added:
JBA Short Tube Headers
JBA High Flow Mid-pipes (2.5" diameter)
Magnaflow Custom built Exhaust with NO
resonators (this is not one of the kits you buy directly, this was built by
the muffler shop I took it to using all Magnaflow pipes and such and cost
The new system sounds great. Has a pretty deep throaty rumble to it. There
is drone, but It's not terrible, I think in time I will actually get used
to it. The system could stand to be louder and have a little less drone,
but other than that, it's great. Added a pretty good amount of power as
well as you can almost always chirp the tires going into second gear now
where as before you could only do it on a lucky occasion.
It has a very clean sound and runs smooth. On the freeway the drone isn't
very bad at all, only when you start to accelerate and get it around 3000
I'll try to get an interior video soon!
Just wanted to add some more personal input now that we have had the system
on for a few weeks.
I mentioned the drone, yes, there is drone, wont deny it. BUT, it's not bad
at all. We have gone on a couple 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hour cruises and it hasn't
bothered us at all. Freeway speeds it's fine, not very bothersome. The only
time it really gets to me at all, is a somewhat slow acceleration, the
first 2-3 gears can put some decent pressure on your ears. But it's easily
avoidable by accelerating slower or faster.
I mentioned that it could be louder. I may have been wrong! This thing is
pretty dang loud! In fact, we compared our system to a friends Corsa
Extreme system (also a 2010 automatic R/T). Guess what, OURS IS LOUDER THAN
THE CORSA EXTREME. At WOT, it's very close, and the Corsa may actually have
a bit more sound. BUT, at start-up, idle, and cruising, the Magnaflow IS
Sorry it's taking so long to get an Interior video, I haven't had to many
chances to get the car away from the old man long enough to bother grabbing
the video camera lol. But it WILL come... Eventually. haha
Any questions, feel free to ask.
