2019 Dodge Durango Hellcat-Powered Review & Changes – FCA may not fit its massively-popular Hellcat engine into any new vehicles but that has not discontinued a U.S. tuner from creating a Dodge Durango Hellcat a fact.
Motor Power records that the owner of a 2019 Dodge Durango R/T wished to give her husband a present in the form of a Hellcat-powered Durango. Understanding that Dodge does not provide such a model, she enlisted the help of Plum Floored Masterpieces, a Phoenix tuning store specializing in Mopar products.
The tuners were actually in a position to decrease out the Durango’s stock engine and change it out with the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat. However, it was not an entirely straightforward engine replace. Alternatively, Plum Floored Projects was forced to swap the stock 2.3-liter supercharger with a new 2.9-liter unit from Whipple that could be run by the standard ECU.
Somewhere else, the Durango has been installed with a custom exhaust system and a 6-speed ATS Stage 3 transmission with a billet feedback shaft and torque converter. To assist provide the insane SUV to a quiet, huge 6-piston Brembo brake calipers have been fixed up front together with 4-piston models at the rear. Final exterior alterations include new wheels and custom vinyl fabric. All up, this Hellcat-driven Durango pumping systems out 698 hp at the crank and 570 hp at all four wheels.
