Seems like it's kind of pointless to build one of those N/A Hemi cars when Hellcat is out there for few grand more

If I was you I'd keep it at the current power level .there is a huge field of 600-800whp cars at 1/2 mile events that you car run against. You make 1200whp+ then its going to be a garage queen that brakes often and will come out few times a year

The nice part about turboís is itís easily adjustable, id probably street it around 800-900 and turn it up once in a while to play, itís getting more go as it is now I was already talking to my tuner about adding some nitrous lol

You can get into a hellcat challenger for mid to low 40's.....

You can get into a hellcat charger for bottom 50's.....I know of one for sale for 46k with 30k on the odo....Arizona car, stock.

The 6.4L's make about the same rwhp as a stock hellcat with 6-8psi pro charger. It is a slippery slope. If you build the motor, you have the 8HP70, not the 8HP90 that the hellcat has.

Even a stock Scat Pack is surprisingly fun to drive. The big 6.4 torque and 8spd trans are a riot from stoplight to stoplight. A Procharger on a Scat would be awesome...you'll always have that low end grunt and the PC will help the thing pull hard at higher rpms/speeds. I'd bet a Scat with a 6psi PC would still trap in the mid to upper 120's. Not blazing for the street, but definitely a fun cruiser.

Chargers are a little more expensive and "rare" I would guess. They built a "shit ton" of challengers and continue to do so.

You can find some higher mileage ones into the 40's. Private party would be the best way. Dealers always think they have something special.
