There is nothing better sounding in the world than a very angry American v8 with a big ol’ supercharger singing it’s song strapped to the top of it. grin

My buddy has a '17 Hellcat, he took it to a shop in Indy and had the whole engine torn down and rebuilt with top-line parts and the 4.2L Kenne Bell supercharger. It made 1223 RWHP and he wants to add a Snow methanol kit for some extra juice; he plans on taking it to the Texas Mile since he's from there, and being a 6-speed, it's not like he's going to be able to drag race it well without probably breaking stuff. He got all the driveline goodies, triple plate clutch, upgraded shafts, carbon fiber driveshaft, built rear end, etc... but it's a full-weight car otherwise. I'd guess he probably dropped enough to have bought a second stock Hellcat for what he put into this one. Needless to say, he loves it.

Replacing a Z06 with a Hellcat...big step down...and why keep the Cobra over the Z06? Makes no sense...

A step down? In which way? The Hellcat looks better, sounds better, rides better, with more power and a nicer interior.

Is it a C6z06 or a C7z06? Looks being subjective, the Hellcat and a C7z are pretty similar in 1/4 times but the vettes turn a lot better than that boat.

The Hellcat looks better than a Vette? That's laughable. Sounds better, that's debatable. Rides better? If I wanted a nice ride, I wouldn't be looking at a Hellcat. Nicer interior, again subjective...about the only thing the Hellcat does better is accelerate, and that's only if the Z06 is not a C7...

People who buy Hellcats apparently don't care about going around corners...

I don't think arguing Z06 vs Hellcat has any point here. Two very different beasts with different purposes. Both fun as [censored] though, can't go wrong either way!

My boss has a 17 or 18 and it does sound really nice even just sitting there idling but then again with todays 4/6 cylinder engines any V8 sounds good to me.

My buddy has one that I've driven a few times. Lots of power that will put a smile on your face.

His two biggest complaints: FCA build quality and the depreciation that goes along with being a FCA product. Since your buying used, that's definitely in your favor.
