Why The DODGE DEMON Is Better!

Why The DODGE DEMON Is Better!
hey guys this is Brenton Brown owner of Forza tuning in performance and today we're going to talk about these three

demon

s and how they differ from the regular Hellcat we get a lot of questions about what is different about the

demon

than the the Hellcat the

demon

was introduced in 2018 as a limited production vehicle they made 3,300 of them there's just they there's a lot of cool things about the

demon

and the

demon

head and on the option list a a

demon

crate it was they cost literally $1 to get the option and inside the crate they give you a second PCM which is the computer for the car that had no top speed limiter they gave you a jack and special like front they refer just front skinnies which are drag race wheels and you know a snap-on torque wrench with the

demon

on it they give you a high octane button which replaces the bezel and a dashboard and gives you the functionality to run race gas with the push of a button the

demon

is basically a drag specific vehicle there are a lot of similarities between the Hellcat and the

demon

both the cars feature

dodge

s 6.2 liter v8 Hemi engine that is supercharged the difference between the two engines is the

demon

engine is considerably stronger everything down to the engine block influx is it's much more rigid than the Hellcat engine the crankshaft is stronger the connecting rods are stronger the Pistons are stronger the camshafts are similar but the

demon

camshaft us have a little bit different profile the cylinder...

heads the cylinder heads on the

demon

and the Hellcat are both CNC Don us on a specific machine that does nothing but those two cylinder heads the difference between it two is the

demon

head has a lot more webbing which makes it structurally stronger and superior to the Hellcat head flow characteristic wise they're very similar so the

demon

head is structurally stronger inside the engine the the oiling system is a little bit different on both engines they feature of pistons quarters which spray oil to the bottom side of the piston skirts what that does is cool the Pistons ward off detonation but the the Pistons quarters are double and the

demon

so they actually supplied two times as much oil to the bottom of the piston skirts is when the regular Hellcat engine both cars are supercharged and they have very similar supercharger if you look at them side-by-side it's really hard to tell them apart the

demon

of course has the

demon

on the lid of the supercharger but but physically they're the same size the Hellcat has a 2.4 liter displacement supercharger which means it displaces 2.4 liters of air per revolution the diamond supercharger is a 2.7 liter displacement and how they achieve that is what they did is they actually extended the rotor pack a little over an inch which gave it more volume to pump air so they both if you looked at them from the outside they look very similar until you started taking them apart what

dodge

did to feed the extra capacity from that...

supercharger is they did an upgraded hood I'll show you on this one this is actually a true ram air functional hood what air does is come in through here and it's routed through the bottom of the hood into here and you'll see this plastic bezel right here seals against this weather stripping so it actually forces cold air through the hood directly into the air box so it also features the hole in the headlight which is a signature thing for the Hellcat this is a ram air feature that forces cold air through the hole in the headlight into the air box right here so the Hellcat only has this and then the

demon

incorporated both these items this really makes a difference in keeping intake air temperatures cooler and really force-feeding a large amount of cool air into the supercharger another cool thing about the the

demon

engine is they redesign the oil pan in the windage tray they knew this car was going to be specifically used in drag race applications under hard acceleration leaving the line so what they did is they redesigned it so the oil pickup tube would stay submerged in oil under hard launches when the

demon

leaves the line it's doing about 1.8 G's so a standard oil pan what would happen is the oil would go to the back of the oil pan and there could be potential we're there for the oil pickup to to suck up air and damage the engine so

Dodge

came up with then with a revised oil paint and windage straight to prevent that from happening in the...

aftermarket world there's some items called killer chillers and what they do is they incorporate the air conditioning system into a brick that cools the coolant that cools the supercharger so never before in a production vehicle has anybody done this what they do is they actually use the air conditioner system and when you put the car in a track mode or drag mode it kills the air conditioner to the cabin of the vehicle so the air conditioning system completely cools the heat exchanger that is responsible for cooling the coolant that passes through the supercharger which it turns drops intake air temperatures makes the car faster makes the air denser and Ward's off detonation so that's a pretty cool feature especially on a production vehicle the engine and the

demon

and a Hellcat are incredibly durable and reliable something the

Dodge

does on these that is not very common for a production vehicle of every single engine when it's built is sent to a room and they are dyno tested at about 5,200 rpm through about 42 minutes straight once it passes all the tests then they take the engine and they send it off to actually be installed in the vehicle they do this on every single car that comes off the line since the

demon

was built as a specialty vehicle and limited production that's more of a drag based vehicle the

demon

puts out about eight hundred eight horsepower or about eight hundred forty on race gas whereas the Hellcat puts out 707 horsepower part of that...
is because of the boost level a Hellcat is about 11.6 pounds of boost and the

demon

runs about fourteen and a half so that additional boost level lets the

demon

achieve higher power and all the differences that we talked about about the internals of the engine allow it to hold up under that abuse so as you can see from a mechanical standpoint the

demon

is a far superior car to the Hellcat it has considerable differences it's a much stronger platform and

dodge

did a phenomenal job and it's one of the coolest cars in my opinion scam out a long time so let's go over a few fun facts on the

demon

on a quarter-mile run at the drag strip and just approximately a hundred and seventy three cubic feet of air okay a lot of people don't really know what okay what does that mean a hundred and seventy three cubic feet of air is the typical lung capacity of eight hundred and sixteen human beings so put that perspective that's pretty cool when the

demon

is running a wide open throttle it is ingesting about 1.3 6 gallons per minute of fuel so to put that in an end of the perspective would be a typical showerhead at your house if you turn it on ahead and running full blast that is about two gallons per minute of water so that's that's actually how much fuel is being processed through the engine at that power level when the

demon

leaves the line at a drag strip on a launch the ring gear is seeing over eleven thousand foot-pounds of torque and that results the car...
being propelled at 1.8 G's which is unheard of for a production vehicle on the power stroke of the engine so when the engines a wide open throttle when the Pistons coming up there is over 11 tons of force on each piston connecting rod that's literally the equivalent of the weight of five

Dodge

demon

s on each piston connecting rod and this is happening more than 50 times each second at 6300 rpm so now that we've kind of given you a little bit of background a little bit information on the

demon

and why it's such a cool car we have these three

demon

s behind us this one you'll notice has an interesting license plate this just arrived on a boat from Kuwait so we're building this for a customer over there there's gonna be a rather extreme build this is getting a fully built engine Ford nine-inch rear and upgraded axles driveshaft nitrous pretty much anything you do this this car will be about 1,500 horsepower when we're done the black one the same thing this is this foreign surpassed our regular stage for our build this car is getting a lot of really unique one-off parts a full direct injection nitrous system a triple pump fuel system this car is gonna probably be in the neighborhood of around 1,400 horsepower when we're done the gray car right here this is really gonna be a special project I don't know if you all heard of the hellephant engine that's coming out by

Dodge

they release specs on that and it's it's about a thousand...
horsepower out of the box they allocated a hundred engines to be built and we were lucky enough to be one of the first ones on the list so this engines supposed to be delivered to us from

Dodge

and their first quarter of 2020 so this

Dodge

demon

right here has about 27 miles on it it still has the plastic on it seeds and everything else what we're gonna do is we're gonna do a fully decked out stage for our billet but we're gonna do is remove the stock engine we're gonna start with the hellephant engine as a base we're gonna do all our typical modifications and everything we have a lot of one-off stuff like fully ceramic wheel bearings wheel hubs and everything this car is gonna have a lot of very high-end unique parts this car will definitely exceed 1,500 horsepower so we'll keep you up to date on this in future videos which is kind of waiting for the engine at this point we're really excited about this project right here okay guys I hope you liked this little segment on the
