We really busted on it tonight...It's almost done now. It will be done minus bolt ons this weekend. After that, it's going to be fully tuned the next weekend. I can't wait...

Man, thats a neat and SMART project.

Its a lot cleaner, faster and I bet cheaper than trying to resurect a 40 year old rusted out chariot!!!

I think the new Challenger is growing on me. I really didnt like it at first and I think its a bit puffy and overweight and BIG. But IM starting to like it more and more, specially now thats available with a 6 speed.

its nice to work on.
almost simple.

the tuning is the hard part in my book.

thats the head that we have gotten to 390 peak cfm. off a stock 2.080 intake valve. the valve is a ferrera piece from mopar.

starting on the intake today.

Cool project.

I was drooling over a black one with the 6-sp with ~800 miles on it yesterday. I was at the dealer getting some things done on my truck and there was one in the showroom. Apparently the owner got it for himself and it's already had a tranny. He's not sure if he's keeping it but it's parked in the showroom for now.

just thrashed through the weekend to get it all together and up and running.
today we will be taking some pics.
came out ok. the tuner was able to squeek some decent power out of the car.
its sister made 466 at the wheel. on a mustang dyno.
this one was even higher.

Can you list all the mods made to this car to get that kind of power...AND how much would all this cost for a DIY type build up. You talkin 475+HP at the rear wheels with no supercharger ?? That simply amazing !!

Pretty good numbers on a VERY COOL project, but nothing out of this world for the newer gen cars. My buddy has and 05 GTO that made 468 hp to the wheels with the stock ported intake, stock ported heads, a cam and Exhaust. And the cam is designed for nitrous so it will pick up a bunch more on the juice.

If i could afford a newer generation muscle car, I would own one. Until the dart will have to do.

Keep up the good work guys!

i am talking that much at the wheel on a N/A motor that is 15 percent lower that what a dynojet dyno would have shown us.

its in realitly over 500

i will list the mods. it isnt that complicated of a build
