2009 Hennessey HPE 500 Dodge Ram 1500 – Click above to view videos after the jump

The lunatics in John Hennessey's Texas hoon asylum have run amok yet again, this time bolting a supercharger to a Hemi-packing four-door Ram 1500. The result is a 500-hp mulch hauler that will get you and your whole weekend DIY crew to Lowe's and back faster than a leaky water heater can flood your basement.

The power boost comes courtesy of the Hennessey HPE 500 upgrade package, which relies on a TVS2300 blower to open the 5.7-liter Hemi's lungs just a little wider. The standard kit also includes a revised intake, new fuel injectors, a cat-back exhaust and revised engine management. The resulting 505 horses can be hitched to any 2009-and-up Ram 1500 Hemi.

Options include a full long-tube header exhaust, high-flow cats, a premium wheel and tire package, and your choice of a lowered or raised suspension. Whether you go for the wheel/tire upgrade is up to you, but with all that power under your right foot, it seems like a fine idea. Click past the jump to see the Hennessey HPE 500 Ram 1500 in action on the street and on the dyno.

      Hennessey must be bribing someone on autoblog to post these kind of advertisements.

        If you don't like it than skip the post. Stop your crying and move on.

      This truck has a chunky, bloated constipated look with a panicked expression as if it's going to crap his pants when you turn the wheel. Hennessey has supercharged a fat cow

      A great commuter for sure, if you can spare the fifty bucks a day in fuel.
