    So, I've not had a good track record with cars recently. My 911 Carrera had a rod that decided to saw the engine in half. My Cobra... Well there is a whole thread on that. Most recely I purchased a G55 as a daily, an amazingly fun truck, but an expensive one. Gas mileage never got much better then 11mpg despite the claimed 12/15, and let's just say Mercedes maintenance lives up to the hype. Nearly $5k in 8 months.

    So at the end of June I started the search for a replacement. I was really keen on a HC. I have certainly nut hugged the shit out of FCA recently. They have been at the top of their game and giving the customers what they want.

    After drivering dozens of cars, including 392s, Chargers, 6spds and Autos.

    I bought my first new car. At nearly $10k less then a 2016 Hellcat, I picked up a loaded 1320 SCAT in F8 Green. It's been a journey, but it's finally done.

    Also, yes, I made the dealer go hunt down some splitter guards

    I would find it hard to buy a vehicle with a motor that does not like FI

    But the car itself looks damn good in that green.....
    What does the 1320 package get you?

    I got mine with the Heated/Cooled Suede seats so I have both front seats and rear. I plan to pick up the delete kit from Mopar ($240).

    As for FI, the problem is the ring gap needs to be filled open. But, once your that far, just change out the pistons. The ring lands are very thin and at the top of the piston.

    Luckily there are drop in pistons and even piston/rod kits for cheap. Just pull it, drop them in, upgrade the headgasket, valve springs, delete MDS, Cam, Hellcat Oil pump, ARP studs... And good to go. It's OHV unlike a Coyote so it's a lot less misserible of a task.

    I don't plan to do anything until it's paid off and the warranty is just a distant memory in a few years. At that point, I might throw the 392 into my Tacoma and just drop a HC pull out into the 1320.

    As for stock times, Dodge claims 11.7, people have hit 11.5. One guy with skinnies managed 11.3.

    Cars can put down nearly 490whp with an E85 tune.

    Congrats on the purchase. I owned a Scat Pack before buying a Hellcat. They are a lot of car for the money.
