I suppose, but I was always told that the a/c uses 10 HP right off the top of the performance.

The A/C is used for the power chiller to cool the intercooler. Under full throttle, the A/C turns off so it doesnt rob HP, it also extends the life of the A/C compressor and you get cooler IAT temps due to the cooler intercooler temps.

Along with the 2019+ Hellcats, no?
Nope. Only the After Run Cool Down feature is shared. Fancy way to say the intercooler pump runs and the cooling fan stays on high for upto 5 mins after the car is shut off.
