AfterFX Customs in Plainfield, New Hampshire knows a thing or two about being extreme. So when they decided to build a HEMI challenger with an attitude, ProCharger was the clear power adder of choice. They started with a 2008 SRT8 Challenger dubbed “Wide and Wild” which was featured recently in Auto Enthusiast Weekly. Matt Jackson of AfterFX began with a 440 cubic inch stroker motor to replace the stock 6.1L HEMI, he then enlisted BES Racing and High Horse Performance to build the engine and help him reach his 1,000 HP goals.
A laundry list of high-end parts were used including a K-1 440 crankshaft, K-1 rods with custom BES designed Ross pistons, ported and polished heads, and a custom sheet metal intake manifold. Topping off the power department is the ProCharger Stage II Intercooled Tuner Kit with an F-1A self-contained supercharger running 17 PSI of boost. AfterFX reported an impressive 1250 bhp for this custom built wide body.
