    DSR just posted this on their facbook, Leah used a drag pack but look at the numbers on the window. Hint at 777?

    SRT is trolling hard core. I bet you they are all getting a real kick out of all the speculation.

    Here's a better image of the car. Could it have been a demon underneath? hood looks to be demon because drag pack hoods are different

    Sooo... it won't have 1100 Horsepower... but will it have over 1000 Horsepower??????

    If the Demon is in fact that powerful, then SRT has just kicked every automotive manufacture in the nuts.

    Once again... I love SRT!!!!!

    How audacious would that have been, if that were an actual Demon in testing, haha.

    Correction, Leah had the 354 Supercharged Drag Pak not the 426 version.

    So the 354 Drag Pak has 2 hood styles? or is Leah's is just one-off?

    Well, from what I understood from pre-Hellcat launch, that the Hellcat was making well above 707hp. I was told that the Hellcat internals were solid to 1000 hp.

    I was operating under the premise that the Demon engine was just a Hellcat with a bigger blower and a few other parts, but the same rotating assembly, so it was =<1000 hp.

    I now have reason to believe that Demon will have a substantially different hp capacity. Note, like I said, the Hellcat was "solid to 1000hp", apparently the Demon will be substantially higher than that.

    So, my question is, how different will the Demon short block be from Hellcat. I assumed they were the same, but I was told my assumption was wrong.

    One of the insiders here alluded to different internals a while back. My biggest question concerning that since then; are the internals just stronger or are we talking different displacement?

    For a long while I've assumed it would continue to be a 6.2L. However, with how they continue to shock me week after week, I wouldn't be shocked at all if it were changed.

    Just want to be clear to anyone reading that I have NO inside information or clues besides what has been said here on this site. This is just my own wild speculation.
