Dodge put an immense amount of work into making the Demon 170 possible and it certainly shows. In order for the engine to keep up with the overwhelming pressure created by such power, significant changes had to be made – including new pistons, connecting rods, crankshaft, crank bearings and billet main caps.
The ‘170’ name also comes from the fuel mix of E85, which is basically 170 proof. The hit the point home, ‘ALCOHOL INJECTED’ can be seen on the hood scoop, with the color yellow being added to the engine block and Demon badge to refer to the fuel being derived from corn.
