That's all he does is complain. 1st the V6 is more than enough muscle car, why would anyone want more? Next was how great RT's are, why would anyone need an SRT? Then was why hasn't Dodge given more...

I don't get why you would want to do this? With your mods, you should be knocking on the 12 sec door. W/ a 440, you could get there, but it would not be a good street engine. In addition, as...

Tunnel rams are and were never meant for street cars. Due to the long runners they had absolutely no lower end torque and usually didn't come on until 3500 to 4000 rpms. How many times you drive...

There are plenty threads about this, if you do a search. I have used it before, it is a great conversation piece; but, as with most CAI's, it does very little for hp. It will help IAT's a little,...

What you're not understanding is; that Dodge requires you to buy the "pack" together and then upgrade step by step until you get to stage three. You haven't purchased the "tune" from Dodge as they...

Then, U don't have a Scat Pack 1. Scat packs are dealer installed and you can't skip stages, ie one can't buy a stage two w/o having a dealer installed stage one, including the stage 1 factory tune.

why has Dodge said F-it on the 5.7 power upgrade?

IMHO, U are a continual whiner & agitator. Ur posts are mostly negative about one thing or another. U don't like the hp of a 5.7? Put ur money where ur mouth is. Speed costs, how much U willing to...

So, basically, you were going to buy a new car regardless? Good things come to those who wait. BTW, both your cars are great cars. Used to be into Vettes, but getting too old and fat!
