    • Making a Prius not suck - Swapping a 1000+ hp Dodge Hellcat V8 with a 4.5 liter Whipple in to make a PriusSRT8

      Why do this? Because you can. Also, because the Toyota Prius is about as exciting as going to the dentist. The guys at ARH (American Racing Headers) decided for some reason to swap a Hellcat 6.2 liter V8 into a Prius and give it over 1000 horsepower.


      That makes for a Prius project we can get behind. Especially since they are throwing a 4.5 liter Whipple twin screw blower on top.

      They are basically putting the Prius body on an NHRA frame with a Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox. Power is sent to the rear wheels as the automotive gods intended.

      This thing is going to be a dragstrip terror which is not something you regular Prius owner can say.

      Feel free to follow the build on the ARH facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/americanracingheaders/

        Age-old tradition of putting a monster engine in the most unassuming body you can.

        Bet that SWB does wheelies for days without bars on the back.

        No one will be butt-hurt once they realize what's under the hood - er, hatch.
