Just some simple mods. It starts with a Litens Hellraiser 2.85 upper pulley, catless mids, 180 degree thermostat, suspension links so 17" rims will fit, PCM unlock, and TCM tune.

The work will be done by Peitz Performance in the Houston area.

Sounds like the foundation for a real good, all purpose kick ass car.

Hey Texas Redeye: let me know how well this build comes out. I am in Pearland, and looking for someone that does a good job.

It surprises me that you would modify your 2019 Redeye, but is cool.:cool:
Alex has come far with Hellcat/Hemi Tuning and has a good reputation!



Enjoy your upcoming Fasssst Fun!

He did a great job with my 2016 Hellcat, so I'm speaking from experience.

Post up HP and TQ numbers when it’s done. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.
I pick up my cat this week from it being fully built minus the stock heads.

I should have a baseline tomorrow before they get started. It's a stingy Mustang dyno that brings normal men to tears.

Well my baseline numbers are in. Two things, first of all it's 100 degrees down here and it's a Mustang dyno in a none air conditioned shop.
RWHP = 630 Crank HP = 725. It looks like the numbers are IMHO 10% too low. I know the heat plays in important part and I know going in the Mustang dyno brings normal men to tears.

Called a heartbreaker for a reason - local one read 950 and shipped it off to Chicago and read 1160+ on a dynojet.

Dyno is just a tuning tool - trap speed and 50-150/60-130 the true show of power.

I wouldn’t worry. I think just about everyone understands the variables with dynos. The important part is sticking with the same dyno after mods and how they actually translate into real track times.

Add a differential brace and driveshaft loop to the list. Since the warranty is blown.............why not add a couple of safety items to the build sheet.

So, just to be safe, I'm adding that stuff.

It's a shock to the ego thinking your car may be slower than someone who dyno's 10% higher on a Dynojet..........till you line 'em up and beat them by a car length.

I'm attending a track rental at Houston Raceway on 9/21, then in early there will be Moparfest at Houston Raceway on October 5, 2019 that I want to be prepared to attend without looking like some sort of newbie when racing a car with 100+ more rwhp.

I picked up 98 rwhp by the mods. She's good to go on 93 octane. Mods are 2.85, catless mids, 180 stat, engine and transmission tune using HP Tuners.
