How can I make it faster?

What are some things I could do to my stock 2010 srt8 challenger in order to make it faster? 'I already bought a Cold Air Intake'

Faster at the track?

If you’re looking for time slips, slick tires are the way to go. Easily cut your time down.

Long tubes make good power if you’re not emissions exempt

A tune should be easy since you dont have a locked pcm

Many more directions to go

It all depends on how much money you want to spend and how fast you want to go.

Your cold air intake will not give you much, if anything. I would recommend a Diablo tuner to start.

If you have a big budget ($4k plus labor), you could install a supercharger.

Nitrous gives best bang for the buck in terms of $/HP. Next is supercharger, followed by cam/heads. Basically you are looking at $50-$100 per HP on these cars. Fortunately you have a 2010 so you don't need a modified PCM saving you ~$250.

Then you get to a point that it's hard to stop wheel spin off the line.

Adam, are you trying to hit the 13.2s ¼ mi. ET benchmark or exceed it–i.e. 12s?

After 20 passes I still can't break into the 13s... best is 14.104s. The elevation at LVMS is 1961.9 ft. and DA is typically 3000–6000 so I'm not certainly not running in near-optimal conditions especially on these hot summer nights in the desert. However on one cold 48° November evening I was able to do a 4.7s 0-60 according to the onboard performance pages.

Cuda340, I've been considering a DiabloSport inTune i3 8300 or Platinum 8345 for CMR custom tunes. According to the DiabloSport product pages:
• 91 Octane Performance Tune: 23HP 23TQ
Might this translate to significant reduction in my ET given the conditions I'm running in?

The DS tunes typically reduce the amount of timing being pulled when the throttle is applied "tip-in" and they also desensitize the knock sensors which translates to more power being made available.
