HellRaiser pulley for Hellcat
A great many owners of Hellcat-powered vehicles from Dodge and Jeep have learned that swapping to a smaller pulley adds gobs of power (with the necessary supporting modifications). The problem with the pulley swap options on the market over the past few years is that they lack the internal decoupling and isolating assembly found in the stock Hellcat supercharger pulley, but that has just changed.
Litens High Performance – a division of the same Canadian firm that produces the stock supercharger pulley for the Hellcat Challenger, the Hellcat Charger, the Trackhawk, the Hellcat Redeye and the Demon – recently introduced the first decoupling pulley for the IHI superchargers on the modern Mopar monsters and it has a fitting name.
The HellRaiser pulley is produced by Litens High Performance and distributed by Tendeco to performance shops around North America. This pulley measures 3.17-inches and features the same basic structural design and the same internal decoupling design as the stock pulleys, but those stock pulleys are 3.43-inches (87mm). Where the stock pulley on the Hellcat cars and the Trackhawk deliver around 11 pounds of boost, the HellRaiser increases the boost pressure to 14psi.
For those wondering, the HellRaiser pulley from Litens High Performance was developed with some very well-known members of the Mopar Performance community. Rob Laing of Litens (High Performance design team, and a drag racer himself) and John Lussier of Tendeco presented Hellcat and Demon owner Paul Georges with the idea.
