Being put through its dyno paces, the blown 6.2-liter V8 screams like a true son of Lucifer and this is the main asset here.
Sure, the extra power mentioned by SeriousHP, the aftermarket specialist who installed the hardware, is also important. The team explains the new exhaust brings a gain of 36 hp and 35 lb-ft (47 Nm). Moreover, the video includes a dyno chart, so we can see how the extra muscle is spread.
However, the company doesn’t mention whether an ECU remap was used to achieve the values above. Our money is on a positive answer.
Regardless, the output increase is no big deal. People had been strapping blowers to Hemis for years, but the top asset of the Hellcat is the streetable, warranty-covered power. And when you have a car that smokes the rear tires up to an including third gear, do you really need more?
Perhaps, but only when that refers to ridiculous 1,000 HP outputs, the kind we’ll definitely see in the future.
