      I think the ruling earlier was that it would be acceptable.

      I believe it was the Hellcat that Jay Leno gave to the injured soldier, had Purple Heart plates. Either way, got up next to him, looked over and revved and smiled, the noise it made as it left the light could cause an earthquake.

      They look spectacular in person.

      Article for reference, Jay Leno is quite the guy.

      Got my Diablosport tuner last night. Improved throttle response, adjusted shift points, and shut off the 4 cylinder Eco mode that robs me of Freedom.

      Had a disappointing run in with what I tought was a Scatpack yesterday, was a Hellcat...
      Honestly the gas mileage isn't horrendous, its just pretty bad. I get around 180-200 miles to a tank (a small tank), which comes out to be 12-13mpg depending. I have taken trips between cities in it and returned around 21-22mpg of just cruising.

      For reference my buddies bolt-on CTSV gets the exact same mileage (13ish on avg), and he daily drives it, so I don't feel too bad.

      That's not really much worse than what I see on a regular basis.

      I don't think they can give you gains quite that extreme, but there are people out there who make custom dyno tunes for them.

      Even moreso when you have the tranny reinforced and the shifts firmed up all muscle car-like.....it messes with your impulse control. Turns out I'm lacking there.
