My SRT 2015 filled up at 7 quarts of 0w40? Are you saying I overfilled?

No, not at all.

The Hellcats for 2015 and 2016 are specified to have 5.9 quarts in the engine and with the 2017 Hellcat, they have changed it to 7 quarts. All the Hellcat owners from 2015 and 2016 have been wondering why the 6.4L and 5.7L get 7 quarts and theirs only got 5.9 quarts in the system. This is specifically for the 6.2L NOT the 6.4L which would take 7 quarts.

We have determined that the 2017 is a change in the dipstick and tube assembly only and that the pans, cooler lines and oil cooler are exactly the same. Your 2015 is fine with 7 quarts and you did fine.

Obviously, when we make oils for the 6.2L and the 6.4L we make the 7.5w40 Racing Oils that smooth out the 6.2L and 6.4L. Each customer has commented how much smoother and quieter these engines are.

I hope this is clearer for you.

I can definitely vouch for the "smoother and quieter" results that people are reporting. Cold starts on the 5.7 are so different. All I hear are the injectors ticking. The 6.4 quieted down as well, but that was always a little less noisy as the 5.7.

I can teach it to you but I can't understand it for you.

Isaac's friend and co-worker was there when they switched the 0w40 to the 7.5w40 QB and his friend said once the engine was running with the 7 quarts that he was sure the engine was quieter than before. Isaac agreed.

So far he has over 4,400 miles on the 7 quarts in the system and running fine.

Yep, no issues from Indiana to Texas and back. Gonna have to do the same drive in a Month since the Dealer screwed up the Tx DMV paperwork.

Several of our other Hellcat owners are asking this and I wanted to go to the horses mouth etc.

I'll get some pictures tomorrow, I'm headed to a car show in Indy and it should be a bit warmer. I didn't take any more while I was in Texas ;/

It was a bit cold out but I idled in the garage for a bit after a spirited bit of driving.

I'd say it looks good. Temps were almost identical down in Texas as well, just didn't take pictures. I haven't seen the coolant go over 212. Oil is usually between 198 and 210.

Looking great so far!
