    • 700+ whp bolt on Hellcat on E85 vs. Heads/Cam E85 C7 Z06, Procharged C7, a bolt on Gen V Viper, stock Charger Hellcat, GTR, Procharged Coyote, etc.

      A Hellcat on E85 with bolt ons is capable of some serious power. The video states 700 whp but that would be somewhat weak considering Hellcats can hit 750+ whp with E85 tuning alone. Obviously this Challenger is making big power but it is going up against some stout competition.


      Up first is a C7 Corvette Z06 with a heads/cam upgrade also tuned on E85. The Z06 crushes the Challenger. It is simply a beatdown.

      What about the Procharged C7? A similar result to the Z06.

      A little Dodge on Dodge action is next with a bolt on Gen V Viper making roughly 600 whp taking on the Challenger Hellcat. The Viper weighs 1300 pounds less and it shows. This is the closest race but the Viper pulls.

      A stock Charger Hellcat is provided as a baseline run next. The tuned Challenger on E85 is clearly making more power as it pulls.

      A ~700 whp Charger tries its luck next and this run is solid between the two.

      A Nissan GTR with a turbo upgrade is next and it just easily pulls. This car should run the Z06 or the Procharged C7.

      How about a Procharged Coyote? The Hellcat get a jump and opens up a lead but the Mustang starts to claw back. They run again and with a more even start the Mustang GT pulls.

      We honestly expected a bit more out of a bolt on Hellcat on E85 on the highway.

        Hellcat looks like a slug compared to these cars. Also what’s with the driver he’s a half a car ahead for half the races? Can’t even line up right and open windows.

        It's weird and why did he take a passenger when the car is already stupid fat?

        Gtr pulls the hardest on him next are the two vettes. A procharged base c7 has a very high performance to dollar ratio.

        The Challenger and Charger platforms are just too heavy - like 4,400 lbs IIRC. Up against pretty light-weight competition like C7's and Vipers, would neeed an add'l 100+ whp over them to keep up.

        It's a beast of a motor. The Z06 is basically a $100k car while the Hellcat is much cheaper.

        I wish they put it in something lighter.

        I also agree the engine is amazing plus they make a strong auto trans that can take the abuse.

        I just really dislike the platform the engine is in....I am not a fan of the current challenger, charger and/or 300C. Maybe I will like the redesign?

        2021! Since when this platform has been around exactly? 2005? And wasn't it based on 90's W210 Benz?

        And they wonder why Chrysler is not selling.

        Wish dodge would make the Dodge Shakedown Challenger that someone did for SEMA in 2016.
