2017 challenger Hellcat
I will admit the Hellcat kicked my ass, and I did not like the taste of the defeat. So the Hellcat will be retired and enjoyed as a once in a while car. Not a single part will be taken from it, and I will relish in the car does not owe me anymore and can be driven freely.

I am currently on my way to look at a shell that I will be putting my old Hellcat motor into. This is going to be a race car and if it breaks, I’ll just go hop in my Hellcat and go grab coffee.
I have a1400hp race car for sale? It’s a2017 HC challenger built 426 stroker.

Don't need a hood where you're going.

My first choice would be to cut a perfect hole to show off the blower. That’s the free choice and that blower looks pretty bitchin so why not show it off.

With @Marc W and @Speedy! Powers combined I will work on that this week.

Completely different casting, there is some meat on the inside to hold the rotors.

Heading to the local body shop for some trim. They sell it cheaper than autozone for the foot.

final trim, all the intake.

might use small screws to bond the top and bottom shells. Or put a clear hood scoop on it.
