Thanks all!

The 6.1L engine and TR6060 transmission are mated and on the RMS K frame. The engine is a 50K mile factory built short block. I added an Arrington cam shaft and CNC ported heads. The intake manifold has also been ported. From the factory it was rated at 425hp. It should comfortably make 500hp.

Matt really did a nice job!


I don't like the taxi cab clusters so I went with a rally dash and bought the Dakota Digital gauges for 68-70 Charger. I rooted through my parts stash and picked out my nice Charger panel switches and cluster bezel. The bezel was redyed and came out pretty nice

Sitting on its own suspension! It will sit at least an inch lower all the way around.

Finally received the driveshaft a couple days ago. I was a little late ordering it. The axle shafts I ordered in March arrived about 3 weeks after ordering so I assumed the driveshaft would take about that long but when I called with the driveshaft dimensions, DSS said they were 8-9 weeks out on driveshafts.

As much as I hate seeing blacked out grilles, this thing is AWESOME! And the grille looks great.

Chrome bumpers? Black? Body color? work
