FWIW, if the park lights work, the fuse or relay is not the issue. the side marker lamps are feed from the same source. Use a test light/VOM to check for power to the SM socket, if there is power...

FWIW, I needed 3 switches, I did not want to put holes in the dash or console. I bought a black plastic project box, put the switches in it and attached it under the dash close to the console. I made...

On an 07 Charger R/T, I had the suitcase resonator (center of vehicle) removed and straight piped it. Louder and good sound, no loss noticed.

To clarify, I'm not sure what those resistors are, 25 watt is correct and should be 6 ohm, use one per side. If they are, and are connected correctly, then I am at a loss. It is hard to diagnose long...

Do you have LEDs in the rear?
What resistors did you use for the front?
Without knowing the answer to either question, I would guess the resistors are not adequate.

Are you sure?

I used 3 ohm 50 watt resistors, one per side, and they are connected to the brake/turn signal OE wire prior to the lamps and to ground.

OE bulbs are 6 ohm 25 watt each and there...

The 392, like the 5.7 intakes, are plastic. The inlets however, are different. I have not looked into a 5.7 or 6.1 manifold, but it appears that as the inlet is straight in, the problems I...

From the inlet in, the opening got slightly smaller for approximately 2 !/2" and then opened up further in. I opened that area to equal the 87mm inlet or slightly larger....

As I recall, the manifold inlet at the TB was roughly 82mm. I opened it to roughly 87mm. On mine, the passage from the inlet was not full size or smoothly shaped so I ported it down several inches,...

With any increase in TB outlet size, to achieve any improvement, port the intake inlet to, or to a slightly larger size.
If you don't port there is a step or ledge the air exiting the TB hits as it...

I flow tested one of the brands you mentioned against the OE cats, the OE flowed more!
The high flows I had do have a 2 1/2" resonator after the cat and that may be why they flowed less. According...

Best I can describe, the sound is deeper and borders on drone. Not objectionable, but not preferred either.
With my B&G pcm the MDS is disabled, but I had to put the OE pcm in to pass emissions test.

I guess I'm lucky, I have been using the 85mm BBK for several years on an 11 392 with no codes or other issues.

Only way to know is to get at it and find out.
Once you have the trunk liner, assuming you have one, out of the way, check the wire connectors to insure they are connected.
