Listen to the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Engine, Not Its Exhaust

Our speakers have already rejoiced to the melody of the the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat on multiple occasions. Nonetheless, what we’ve heard so far was the Active Exhaust, assisting the Hemi V8 in its quest for offering satisfaction. Well, we are now back on the topic, but this time we’ll be doing the listening from inside the engine compartment.

Say “hi” to the Sublime Green 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat we recently talked about. That long hood has now been raised, showing us the sparkling-clean, all-new hardware underneath.

For instance, you can see the new fuel lines, feeding the upgraded fuel injector 8-pack with the high octane juice required by the engine in order to produce its yet unspecified power. Yes, we’re still stuck with the “600 hp plus” statement. However, we mustn't forget that welding the pedal on the right means you'll go through the 18.5 gallons (70 liters) of the tank in a cool 13 minutes.

More importantly, the shiny Hellcat badge adorns the 2.4-liter blower. Speaking of this, let us remind ourselves we came here for the aural part, not the visual one. The supercharger emits a whine that can be taken as a friendly warning for what happens when the pedal is introduced to the mat underneath.

Just listening to the 6.2 liters of Hemi V8 idling is enough to make one’s day more... muscular. In case you’re wondering why our concert attendance isn’t interrupted by Mr. Exhaust at the back, that’s because the system’s valves are not open, with its soundtrack being a civilized one.
