Building The World's First MANUAL Dodge DEMON!
- Published on Jan 31, 2023 veröffentlicht
- I bought the WORST Dodge Demon on the planet to build into the ultimate American muscle car so OF COURSE it's getting a proper six speed manual transmission!
HELLCAT REDEYE DRIVETRAIN & DODGE DEMON PARTS GIVEAWAY DETAILS THROUGHOUT THE VIDEO!
In need of the perfect donor I bought a complete manual Dodge Challenger Hellcat, thoroughly tested it (did a burnout..) and yanked ALL of the parts we need for the swap!
I also picked up a BEAUTIFUL (and dirt cheap) Hellcat Redyee roller to complete the trifecta. At this point we should have everything we need to get this demon back on the road!
Or so I thought...
Looks like we may have to pick up a FOURTH Mopar donor, a widebody Challenger Scat Pack or Hellcat!

I have some some red demonic demon seats for sale front and back
I have a 1987 Dodge Dakota standard cab long bed the Gen 3 hemi would be perfect in. I wanted to do a hemi swap but haven't had the funds to do so. I have owned the truck since high school and I am now 28 so I've had it for 12 years. I live about 2 hrs 45 minutes from you guys and could make the drive down
"SELL ME YOUR DEMON PARTS"
I'd love to Frankenstein that drive train in to my 1991 Toyota Mr2!
This guy is an absolute mad lad he must be protected at all costs
Protected from what? Shop tools?
GIVE ME THE SHAFT
Car want last to long Naming It That janky Demon
This guy is an absolute mad lady he must be protected at all costs, from himself. He needs a court appointed guardian, to handle his money.
@Benny S you must get all the ladies
Despite everything, I still firmly believe that this is not a bad financial decision! A manual demon? Fuck yeah. I love watching you rebuild this and can't wait for the next one 💕
Just came across your channel with this build. Looking forward to see whats next. Also love the energy from you and your people at your workshop. Good vibes make everything much better!
Good luck man!
Love how this build rebuild is well documented from a very passionate guy , hope this turns out awesome at the end! Nice job crazy how you guys bought 3 cars for that lol
I would put that drive train in a 1976 Plymouth Volare Roadrunner!! I've been looking for engines recently, this one would be perfect!!
Great videos by the way! I can't wait to see the demon live again!!
This is such phenomenal content explaining the nitty gritty little details and differences between the two beast trims of Challenger. I own SRT 392 and it feels outright amazing, can't imagine how good it feels in hell cat and demon!!
And always drive responsibly and sensibly guys no matter how good the car feels, we all need our dear body parts intact and love ones to go back to
needed to hear that last bit, much love bro god bless you on your travels 🙏🏾
I would say to get the frame squared up, stripped, and ready for a base coat of paint so then you can start swapping parts for reassembly after its sprayed
Surely the steel in the frame has been severely weakened by heat and is no longer structural?
@Tony Brown yea there’s no way that demon is structurally sound without replacing the roof, and all the burnt panels.
I've seen classic muscle car restorations on many wrecked vehicles. They never get the chassis right again. They end up with problems like doors not closing right and uneven tire wear and unaligned steering. All these things they try to correct with spacers and all kinds of tricks but in reality they are just freshly sprayed and polished ruined cars. A lot of classic muscle cars for sale on the internet are like this.
@nleippe my man
this is probably the greatest rebuild of all time so far. cant wait to see it fully rebuilt. Best of luck
This will be amazing when its all finished
Went way better than I expected since you opened the engine. And good to see PPE with that nastiness
Love the projects and showing what it takes to make these builds happen! As a die hard mopar guy I love seeing the hellcats and demon come together. Extra special love for putting the man pedal in it ❤️ . I hate Nissan jukes
New to your channel here. And i love the build more over how you make it simple plus the amount of educational stuff you put out. I got my self a working project MAGNUM RT AWD rebuilt tranny and engine not even 500 miles on it since. Would love that engine but i guess I'm too late. Hopefully i can fix it and sell or sell as is
this series is fire excited to see how it turns out 🔥
I just found this channel and nobody compares To the quality content they post.
I just discovered your channel recently and really like the Smoked series you have. It's crazy how you can pull value out of the wrecks you bring in. I'm currently a senior in college and I've got a 2003 red TJ Wrangler that could definitely use an engine swap. I know its not quite built for speed but I think it would be a fun swap. I think this would fall under "No replacement for Displacement" and it would be fun to build a rig to explore some of the great outdoor areas around. Thanks for the amazing content and best of luck with the demon!
I cannot believe your getting this done! I respect the determination
Fam! your videos are wild af!!! defs subscribed, seeing you work way into the night, obviously weekends and any other spare time, to bring us content, massive respect to you man, just subscribed for life, loooove this content!!!!
This has been a fantastic build to watch. I will give you my answer on what I’d put the engine in (38 Pontiac). I am little far to come pick it up though lol, that and I have an Eagle that will be going in it. Just want to play along and I hope someone gets to puts it to good use!
I wish I had this skill set. I'm here just trying to figure out how I can rebuild my old high school car from the 90s thinking it's a lost cause for me and you all doing this crazy stuff!
Man, love watching the videos of this build. Just came across the channel recently but I like it. Good stuff. A buddy of mine has a 1997 Chevy C/K1500 with a 4.3 V6 and a 4L60 that's on it's way out. That Hemi would be a pretty nice little upgrade considering he's looking for a V8 to put in it.
Lee this is a massive undertaking, glad things seem to be going your way with the world's first Manual Demon.
I'm gonna need some help from the mopar OG here shortly...
Does that mean the 71 and 72 original demon 340 4 speeds don't count?
love this project, also love this channel and your personality, I loved watching all of this, even the bloopers!
Thanks for the support! glad you're enjoying it!
Fell in love with these series. Discovered your channel just from the demon project.
Love the video brother and it's awesome what your doing! If that engine runs id love to put it in my 2020 Dodge Challenger. I've owned it for 2 years and actually had the engine and trans pulled out as of yesterday. That hemi would make this Challenger next level. Thanks either way brother. And keep up the good content you make. 👍🏼
In all honesty I’d like to put this in my 2010 dodge charger se , only a v6 but haven’t been able to afford a v8 😁 love the channel and the attitude you all have , much support
Love the progress you all are making on the Demon! Keep up the good work! Banana!! 🍌 😆
I think it's awesome your saving that Demon.
I would put that drivetrain in my 2011 Challenger that currently has a 3.6. The car has 217,000 miles and has seen it's share of pain. It is on it's second motor (hydrolocked the factory one) and it's been in a couple of fender benders, but it has been fixed every time. I think it would be a cool project for my son and I to undertake.
@ItsAlwaysFriday freak accidents happen. My jeep pulls from the front passenger corner of the hood. The problem is that if you hit lets say 1 foot of water at a decent speed the water is pushed up to the hood and then back down into the air box. Ive had to drain it and replace the filter a lot. I ended up just cutting my nice vented hood and added a snorkel lol. Cried a bit to cut that hood cus its not stock, but its better than trying to convince someone to tow me away from an offroad park with a hydro locked engine
Rift33SRT When I turned 40 my wife went and found it for me. There is a lot of sentimental value on it. The hellcat route would be fun for sure.
@Mail S It really surprised me too. The factory air cleaner box pulls from the bottom in the bumper area. Freak storm in Oklahoma and I was going to pick my wife up from work. The water that I went through was just about curb high, maybe a little higher. I know the door sills did not get wet and driving through that area in the dry based on curb height it wasn't very deep. I was going slow because I didn't want to push water into the intake. It still pulled water in and broke the rod on piston #1. I avoid any standing water with that car now. There were other vehicles driving through there no problem, which was why I went for it.
how in the hell did you hydro lock a challenger? I have a jeep with the 3.6l, they hyrdo lock easy, i have a snorkel haha
Now that 5.7 drivetrain looks perfect to replace the non-running 225 3 speed on my 66 Valiant! Would be nice, but good luck to anyone here trying to grab it up!
Damn beautiful car so far can’t wait to see it done
I own a 1994 Wrangler that was burnt to the ground and we rebuilt that thing and its still going today but I know it would come alive with your motor and trans put in. That would be impressive thing to drive. Keep up the good work so we can see the Demon finished!
Whether or not this is a bad financial decision, we admire your dedication to the project.
It’s pretty incredible to see you turn something that looked impossible to fix and give a whole new life
Rebuilt cars with that much damage are never quite right. Never.
Awesome video totally enjoyed this, look forward to more on the dodge demon project.
If your nuts enough to try this, then I'm watching till its done! You've earned another subscriber! Looking forward to seeing the finished car!
Can't wait to see the times it can put down when it's finished compared to the auto version
This series is awesome guys keep up the good work
That 5.7 would be great to put in my 1975 w100. It’s Full gold and has a flat bed. It has a 318 and 4 speed which have been used quite a bit. The swap would make my truck daily worthy and give it some cool factor.
As a dodge guy watching this series makes me happy because your doing a near impossible task but I believe you can get it done
we'll get it done
Love this whole build, I just found your channel and subscribed. I've got a 1971 Plymouth scamp I'd love to drop that Hemi in! Can't wait to see you finish this project
I love the fact that tho almost everyone who supported you said no and you still did it is incredible, my dream build is a new challenger body chassis with a 68 charger body, with 6.1L srt8 hemi swap, new interior with old body, with a blower
We can see how much the Supra went in value. Best thing you love what you do! Feel like a kid at the candy store!
Awesome channel!!!! I'm glad I stumbled apon it. I have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 4x4 with a bad transmission and an engine on its last leg, it sure would be awesome to get that drivetrane and stuff er in there. Thanks for the consideration and the content of your videos.
As I’m sick of all the LS swaps, I would put it in my ‘81 square body 3+3
Love your work!! Thanks
I like how much hope this guy has. I subscribed, Im not gonna touch those burned out or stripped cars when I start my business, but I respect the dedication this man has! Good luck and I hope to see the Demon beautifully reborn!!!
You need to save that demon man no questions about that, it's nice to see that project is going forward :) waiting for new updates :)
I love how determined and off the chain your content is on the channel. Like myself I like to do what others say cant be done ,or they are just snowflakes, I would love to give the 5.7 hemi a home in my 06 P71 CROWN VIC .
man if i had that 5.7 i’d drop it in my 2000 dodge 1500, c-notched and dropped super low but it has the 3L v6 in it🤧 definitely got the ways to pick it up too:)
I would put the drivetrain in my 1996 Lincoln Town Car, (in my profile picture but the drivers door chrome panel is fixed now), the big ol boat isn’t exactly made to be a racecar but it’s been through hell and always got me home safe every single time but now the transmission is going out and the drivetrain would fit pretty easily in the similar body style plus itd be a really fun project for me and my grandpa to work on. Great video though he thinks your manual demon swap idea is super cool 😂💪
First time on the channel - this whole Demon thing is absolutely insane.
I love it.
"Give me the shaft"!
This is quickly becoming my favorite series. Keep the work up boss!!
I want the 5.7 for my v6 challenger... but I'd need the entire wire harness with it to do the swap...
Always love watching your videos you sure can make a guy wonder. Will he get it done?? But as we all know it takes time and the right know how.
Respect, I would have never gotten involved, but you look like your set up for this kind of stuff. good job
I would use the drivetrain for a 61 C10 I have, it was my grandfathers project, but unfortunately he passed before he ever got to finish his build, me and my father have been trying and find the perfect drivetrain to put in it, I feel this would be a great fit.
I found you through Ricer Miata's channel and have fell in love with what you do. if I won the motor I would put it in my 1927 t-bucket project. I currently an restoring it and have been looking for a 392 engine to put in it just to be different but a 5.7 would do just fine. it only weighs 1200 pounds. That would be plenty of power.
Hey been watching you from the early days I really enjoy your channel. Much respect to you and your crew you deserve all good things that come your way. Your a good man and its nice to see.
I have a odd question, aren’t you guys worried about the strength of the metal after the fire? I’m just curious that’s all. Keep up the awesome work!
I love this build, so interesting.
This guy is living my dream. Since a young boy I always wanted to do this. Take broken and stock vehicles and build them from scratch. To know how to do this is a dream.
I would put the 5.7 in my automatic 2014 v6 Camaro, that has 100,000 miles. I also wouldn’t mind getting some spare z/28 parts for it aswell 😅
I love watching your videos, makes me want to follow in your footsteps! My dad has been trying to find a 5.7 Hemi power train or better to drop into a 1973 Roadrunner he’s been trying to build to look like a 71’ Cuda he had back in the 70s… we would be happy to come take it off your hands
Absolutely amazing the work that you do on these cars! You have inspired me to start repairing wrecked cars and will always be at the top of my watchlist. Give me the shaft!
Hey Lee...another great video mate..really enjoyed the commentary...some pretty funny comments in this one...its a big job, glad you're remembering what goes where and came from where etc etc 😂😂 cheers
I would definitely find a way to fit that into one of my volkswagen bugs!! That would be insane!!
Mannn how sweet would it be to drop that red eye in my 2001 dodge ram 2500. Would be awesome project lol. Good luck to whoever gets it. But im just saying i have the bed and the time to pick it up and install it next day lol. Awesome video and i believed in the demon from the start goodjob bud 🎉🎉🎉🎉
Wonder if that would fit in an 02 Z71?❣️ dang sure worth a try! P.S. I do own the pickup! Lol
I'm thinking them empty bottles might have something to do with the crash 🤔 😁
BRO, your optimism is INSANE, idk how yalls are gonna pull this off but im very excited to be on this journey and waiting to see the end result.
Easily my favorite series on this channel!!🙂
So cool to see you save this Demon!
I’d put that in my ‘55 Chevy gasser project and call it Blasphemi 😂
The engine from the redeye would be going in a 1987 dodge d150 white base with factory blue stripes and a ton of patina with a 4 inch lowering in the rear to make the truck level. Lots of patina really clean truck. Currently working on a n engine for it.
I was pretty sketched out on the first video of this car, but you're making me a believer
I have a 1961 Dodge Town Wagon that I'm currently restoring.
That redeye drivetrain would be a nice touch of modern, while still preserving the town wagons legacy.
Nothing better than building a Dodge, with Dodge parts !!
So glad your restoring the demon! I have a 2021 scat pack but that’s not what I would put that engine in I would but it in my 1988 bmw 535is that’s currently a rolling chassis. Keep up the good work.
this series just keeps getting better
They’ve got a cease and desist coming their way right after this build is complete 😭 (ALL JOKES) love this idea 💙
Definitely fighting the demons on this build
Love the stuff you do
Loving the series so far! The Demon is my dream car so I'm super stoaked about winning the chain! How do I get in contact with you about it?
I’d honestly put that motor in my 99 2 door Dakota, either way it’s getting motor swapped in the future! Love what you’re doing with the Demon!
I recently discovered your channel and fell all over the burnt demon. Me and wife watched together in disbelief as you said you were going to rebuild and Ive waited for updates since and was excited to see you post this video just a few hours before I saw it. Now, Im going to have to make a statement the government wishes we would all ask for, "please, would you give me the shaft?" Weve been getting it for all our adult lives, this one I might enjoy making into garage art.
I think you guys should build the red hellcat back instead of selling the engine of the silver cat. The body doesn't look all that bad. Like you said, shouldn't be all too difficult to get it back on the road. It looks like you've got plenty of parts available to make it happen. Definitely looking forward to see the demon back on the road.
You guyes are just as impressive as the workshop. Can't wait to see the finish product. The best of luck 😊👍
Just found your channel, great videos and will watch for the next one
You’ll need a non demon set of back tires for burnouts😂
Ain’t that the truth..
Love these project car videos, you guys are smashing it! Where’s the baby GTR? 😅
That Demon is going to be amazing and totoally worth the investment.
Definitely a win to see a rolling chassis👍
Love the video man!! First time seeing your channel and I love what you guys do, I would love to have that 5.7 hemi motor for my dodge challenger I’ve been working on. My parents are the first owners of the car but lent it to some family and it wasn’t cared for as much. So I took over and now am in the process of getting new stuff for the car. It’s a 3.5l v6 right now so it would be cool to get something a little bigger
Hey guys I'm a new subscriber to your channel but I've been watching you or weeks and you're positive outlook on something that is so far from being done I think it's awesome so good luck keep chipping away and keep that positive attitude that you seem never to lose oh yeah and I don't know if I'm late with this but you can't give me the share lol
I'm so sorry I just got that you texted me back I didn't think in a million years that you would text me back I work third shift at night I am a car guy throwing through and I don't even know what to say I don't think you would text back I mean you're a great guy I feel personality wise but wow I hope I'm not too late I'm just getting home
I’d love to have to get the 5.7
I’d be putting it on my 99 sport ram 1500 we take it out to the local drift track and have been preparing to do a turbo kit but this would be so much cooler sitting in it
Hola los veo desde argentina y me encantan todas las locuras que hacen sigan así
Found your videos way too late. I would have loved that 5.7... would go straight into a 2015 Jeep JK. AEV makes a full kit for mounting, etc, so no custom fab would even be needed...
Either way, great videos and you got a new sub today! keep em coming!
i have a 2004 Mustang v6 which actually blew a while ago you guys give me a lot of inspiration for whats possible in the car world. thanks for making this series
Subscribed ! Great content , keep it up lol
Can’t wait to see this project done…
H o p e f u l l y 💀
Part 2 ASAP love the SRT build series
That 5.7 drive terrain would be perfect for my 1969 c10
Use one of the decent ones to make a roof mold and make a carbon roof...or fiberglass
Although it’s not mine, I’d love to have this engine to put in my dads V6 2014 dodge truck. Been looking for an engine around Tennessee at a decent price for almost 2 years. Had to settle for another sketchy v6 that ended up running but we don’t know for how long Haha
Hey, I'd love the engine! I'm actually local (right across the bridge) and have bought some parts from y'all before. My plan would be to use the engine in my street buggy I'm building. I've got pictures of the frame and work I've already done on it and have the means to actually finish the project so it'd be going to a good home!
I would put that hellcat drivetrain in my 392 T/A that I want to build up and eventually boost. That would be a dream.
Just stumbled across your channel but so entertaining, love it
Love that you bringing back such a rare car. So many rare cars get scrapped because people get scared of doing a little body work. Ok, a lot of bodywork in your case. Lol. I watch another Chanel named graveyard cars. They've brought back some amazing rare old school molars that were in this type of condition. It all jist matters on the work your willing to put in as to how much reward you get back out of it. Good luck, can't wait to see this running!
