When introducing the Demon, Dodge came up with a nice little thing called a Demon crate. And, among other goodies, this included a race gas ECU that allows the halo car to go from 808 to 840 hp. Now, you would imagine this is enough to convince owners to leave the Challenger in stock form, especially since this can also be considered a collector car (the company has only built 3,300 units of the thing). Well, you'd be wrong.
In fact, there's already a small market for tuning Demons, which is split into two main camps. We have the pros, namely big companies like Hennessey Performance.

The Texan specialist currently holds the record for the Dodge Demon quarter-mile, with its 1,000+ hp machine having managed to run the 1/4-mile in 9.13s.

Of course, this has led to sky-high levels of anticipation for the moment when the uber-Challenger breaks into the 8s arena.

However, as we mentioned above, the established developers are not the only ones in this race. And that's because they are joined by small tuners.

We've brought along a piece of footage that showcases the adventures of modding a Demon in such fashion. And those of you who are tuned into our drag racing tales might be familiar with this Dodge.

That's because we're talking about the car owned by YouTuber SRT Mush, who likes to visit drag strips on a regular basis.

As far as we know, this was the first Demon to receive a nitrous setup. And while its battle for the 8s run was put on hold by a nasty accident, the thing is now back in action.

You'll get to see the process of tuning this Dodge Demon with nitrous in the clip we have here, with the next step for the car being to return to the drag strip.
