Your ET doesnt match with your MPH and the MPH is a little high for your posted dyno readings....lot of HP for a 5.7 with just bolt ons.........but sometimes things fall out of the norm.....Have you ran it since installing the cam? you should easily be low 12s..

Well, that's what it was. I posted the time slips here on this forum, maybe under 12 sec chall......or something like that. They're all posted. I ran it once since the new cam. I floated the valves and bent some push rods. Haven't ran it since. I am possibly going to put heavier push rods and maybe stronger springs before running again.

TNCHARGER there's a lot of R/Ts running mid 12s with bolt ons. Lol I just installed a fti 3200 and hope to bring my PB down to a 12.2-12.3 once I get my tune problem sorted out.

SRT8 Brembos, JBA shorties, JBA catless mids, 3" MBRP catback, k&n drop-in filter (with the stock box), 3200 FTI TC, MTCM, canned DS 91oct tune, and 275/40/17 MT ET's

1/4 mile PB 12.390@108.78

SRT here with minimal mods 12.85 on Hankook street tires. Very interested in TNCHARGER's results....I have an 08 and am scared to run DR's on the weaker halfshafts.

08 SRT8 #6077, InTune, AFE CAI, 180 TT, Catch Can, Cabin Air Filter, Speedlogix Strut Brace, Hawk HPS brake pads. Best time of 12.78@109.22
