Default Hellcat X

Cliff's Notes:
twin turbo
805hp/800 lb-ft (+98/150 vs. stock)

Interesting that it is both supercharged and turbocharged. I've always been interested in twin-charging but it seems like it's almost never done...

They addressed this in the article, it's about "usable" performance. It would be interesting to see a dyno graph of that power. I'll bet it's just a flat line from like 3k to redline.

I'm curious what they define as "useable performance".

It weighs a ton. With the right tires, you could easily put full power down. It's not like it will ever see a road course. I'm with Elysian though, and question why they bothered with twincharging for not much additional power.

I had the same reaction initially, and the numbers do sound small, but I do wonder about the shape of that dyno graph.

Where did you see the dyno graph?

I am still stumped on why these things are running around on 275 rears. I think it would be awesome if they had a little bigger balls to tub the thing and stuff the Viper's 355 meats in there.

I didn't, that's what I'm saying, I wish we had one to compare to a stock Hellcat.

It is based on the Hellcat plane that had prototypes with an X designation, specifically the XF6F-2 which was both supercharged and turbo charged. Like the car, the added turbocharger on the plane saw marginal gains in power, though it still made them insanely fast at the time.

Probably doesn't gain much because it already has a positive displacement supercharger on it. All I can see adding turbos to it does it increase the efficiency and probably up the boost just a tad.

I guess I could see it adding similar power throughout the rev range, not just up top...
