My car is a 2012 Challenger SRT8 that has been modified pretty extensively. I wanted to showcase how Diablo tuning can help bring a build together and make it a true high-performance machine that can be daily driven. I bought my SRT8 Challenger with the plan in mind to compete with Hellcats, and in 2016 when this build took place, Hellcats were still new on the market. I wanted to make sure that the car was built with the modifications in mind to compete with a hellcat on a track and handle daily driving with tons of miles. The car had 74k miles when the build commenced and I had hoped to go way over 100k.
I have worked for the company since 2011 and been around muscle cars my entire life.
I’m a software engineer and love being able to combine my passion for technology and computers with my passion for cars. Growing up I was a gear head and worked in old school speed shops. I moved over into the technology world and have been a programmer for many years. Several years ago I got the opportunity to combine computers and hot rodding by coming to work here and haven’t looked back! I’m not a “brand” guy. If it’s fast I like it.
I love power of the 392, I believe its the best bang for your buck in the Dodge performance line. Dodge has the most aggressive line up when it comes picking a performance vehicle. My car was used in some of the DiabloSport Ads.
Its a 2017 Charger Scat Pack in GoManGo. Awesome car. The 392 HEMI makes all the power. Its currently sitting at 435 rwhp with just custom tuning and a Cold Air Intake. Its been 12.0 @ 114 MPH in the 1/4 mile with plans to be in the 11’s very soon. This car serves as R&D for much of our HEMI offerings so we’re always trying something new here.
My truck is primarily used for towing and daily driving. I haven’t built this for high performance, but making real performance on a diesel can be easily attained. I wanted to make sure the truck looked a certain way, so I went with the Ready-Lift leveling kit and RBP 20×12 wheels. Next up is RBP steps, RBP grille, LED lighting and Jammer intake/exhaust.
