Default Hellion Kit for the 3.7

Just saw this vid on youtube. They say the kit needs "V8" exhaust, but with the kit you only add "catback" exhaust anyway right?

Overall they don't really say or show much, but in the cabin sounds nice.

IIRC, it was some ridiculous price like $7999 or something along those lines when I looked about 6 months ago. The short time it was listed it equalled the twin turbo GT kit. I haven't looked since

Wonder if it fits autos or just manuals.

What I don't like about this kit is the low mounting of the turbo which requires the use of a scavenger pump for the oil return. And the intake and turbo located in the fender well of a daily driver I'm not sure about either. Good spot for keeping under hood temperature down, but in a heavy rain storm or snow storm and driving through snow drifts...

It is pretty well protected under there actually considering the huge ass splash guard under the nose.

I'll probably stop by the store and see what the magazine article has to say out of curiosity. Drag strip testing would be nice.

For the "sort of easy" button...I'd drive out to Arizona and let them do everything...install, tuning....just to have a problem free week for me, at least.

I understand the basic working of a supercharger and a turbo. But what I'm unsure of is how a turbo builds more torque? There both forcing more cooler air in, is there anyway too get that type of torque from the procharger?

The Turbo has a waste gate so it makes Max boost at a low rpm say 5psi at 3000rpms and holds 5psi all the way to redline.

That's how you get the torque. Where as the procharger makes 2psi at 3000rpms and 5psi at 5000rpms and 8psi at 7000rpms... that's why the procharger is so linear. Most turbo cars you hit the gas and there is a slight delay and then boost comes in and you take off

Theoretically you can so this with a procharger and a smaller pulley and just let the waste gate blow off at 8psi so that you don't exceed it and pop the motor. Hmmm maybe in the future I will experiment with that. What my car is lacking is torque and I could probably get away with using the same injectors becuase top end would be the same power. Id just be changing the low to mid range power band

Sounds like someone just decided on another mod
