    Pure Turbos said they are just about done tunning their 750hp turbos. They also said the driveline is perfectly happy, they are having no issues with the driveline or motor.

    It sounds like you may have been better off buying a Jeep Trackhawk. If you needed the truck bed, just wait for the RAM TRX with the hellcat. That is your best bet to get that power level at a reliable level, and also have a warranty.

    Interesting...

    I feel like anything over 550WHP you need to run 4A all the time lol.

    Only issue with E85, at least from when I had my semi-daily Hellcat tuned for it... It’s a PITA if you don’t have pumps with legit 85% ethanol (most “E-85” by me are around 60%), so you have to pay like $8+ a gallon for race grade E-85 (or something like Ignite Red that’s E90), store it, the figure out what to do with the 55 gallon drums once empty. Another thing that I drastically overlooked... THAT SHIT BURNS FASTTT.. albeit, I was getting 6mpg in my Hellcat with a 16 gallon tank... It sucked it up realll quick.

    I wouldn’t recommend it for a daily unless you plane to swap tunes back & forth & use a detuned 91/93 setting or if you have reliable, true E85 pumps around you. Fuel pump & injector upgrades are pretty easy though & if you have easy access to E85, it’s honestly the shit.

    You’d probably have a better chance of finding a charge station for a Tesla...
