Demon Puts Up Huge Numbers in Stock Form on the Dyno

Ben Vickery's Dodge Demon on the Dyno

Instagrammer goes home with a dyno sheet that reads 783 horsepower and 670 pound-feet of torque for his Demon.

The Dodge Demon more than lives up to its name. Time and again, we’ve seen it absolutely destroy friend and foe alike, proving that Dodge’s heavyweight won’t take a back seat to anyone. But even in its lofty and well-known position, it still has the power to shock. Take this recent Instagram post by Ben Vickery, aka Vickery82. He took his Demon to a portable dyno at Watsonville Municipal Airport in Santa Cruz County, California. The sight – and sound –of the snarling beast on the dyno is truly breathtaking.

A quick scroll through Ben’s Insta page shows that he’s a dyed-in-the-wool Mopar fanatic. On top of the Demon, he also has a near-perfect General Lee clone, and from the looks of it, he takes them out for exercise often. We’re glad that he (digitally, at least) took us along for the ride on this recent dyno pull.

Unsurprisingly, the Demon draws a crowd once it’s on the trailer. At first, the whine of the supercharger drowns out everything else – it may be at an airport, but we have a feeling that it may be loud enough to drown out the sound of some small jet engines.

Then, as the pedal goes to the floor, the mighty V8 opens up. It’s roar overwhelms everything. In a few seconds, it’s all over. The video ends, the Demon backs up off the trailer, and Ben goes home with a dyno sheet that reads 783 horsepower and 670 pound-feet of torque. At the wheels.

That is, to use a technical term, a stupid amount of power. For anyone who ever doubts the Demon’s incredible bang-for-the-buck power, videos like this should serve as a wake-up call. The big Dodge puts up numbers that most muscle car owners can only dream of. And if the sound doesn’t convince you of that, the hard numbers surely will.
