  1. The Faster N' Louder Budget Build ('10 Challenger R/T Classic)

    Builds
    A couple updates today! My stepfather and I dropped the transmission yesterday and started the torque converter swap. In essence, the job is simple—drop the transmission, swap the torque converter, put the transmission back in, done! I really wish it was the easy... You have to drop the...
  2. New Comp Cams help

    Performance Modifications
    I’ve talked to Comp Cams about it a little bit. They are similar to the original 270-274 cams, but the tweaks they’ve made brings the power band into a more “useable” range. The 274 cam is way too big for an otherwise stock 5.7 (despite what many people say), but the new Stage 3 HRT cam massages...
  3. Cam choice for 5.7?

    Bolt On's
    What else did you do besides the cam? I’m putting a 392 cam in my 5.7 soon.
  4. Mid muffler delete, car no longer able to do donuts or burn outs.

    Intake & Exhaust
    Took my mid mufflers out and I don’t have any problem.
  5. JBA shorty’s question

    Intake & Exhaust
    Are you putting JBA shorty headers on a 6.4? If you haven’t bought them yet, I would recommend not buying shorty headers. The 6.4 already comes with factory shorty headers, so you will see minimal difference if anything at all. First of all, yes, they fit in place of the factory exhaust...
  6. Diablosport or HP Tuner

    Tuning/Data
    If I could go back in time, I would invest in any tuner that can also do TCM tuning. But I can’t complain too much because I got my Predator for $75 used.

    Wow, looks like a LOT of work. How do you like that Holley intake manifold?
  8. How old is the average R/T owner? (curious)

    Dodge Challenger R/T Specific
    31 here. Got mine last year (30). Had a few AMC Javelins, but only one that was actually roadworthy. Got my first one when I was 16 or 17 and never finished it.
  9. Phoenix Area High Performance Shops?

    Performance Modifications
    SRT Autoworks or Time Bandit
  10. Absolute cheapest way to do 6.4 cam swap into 5.7

    Performance Modifications
    LOL Is that how much you spent?
  11. Absolute cheapest way to do 6.4 cam swap into 5.7

    I'm doing exactly what you're doing. 392 cam into an A5 Challenger R/T.

  12. The Faster N' Louder Budget Build ('10 Challenger R/T Classic)

    Builds
    Glad you're following along! Hopefully I can get those dyno results in the next week or two. I figure 20 hp wouldn't be expecting too much from a canned tune with shorty headers and CAI. However, a custom tune with the same mods would probably result in even more power. I've seen/heard of guys...
  13. The Faster N' Louder Budget Build ('10 Challenger R/T Classic)

    Builds
    You might be right, but we’ll see how much the first round of upgrades gave it. Also—why not do both? If I can pick up 50 rwhp and then do a 75 shot of nitrous that would be pretty good.
  14. The Faster N' Louder Budget Build ('10 Challenger R/T Classic)

    Builds
    So far, I still haven't gotten a dyno to verify what kind of HP gains I got from the Stage 1 improvements, but that should be coming soon. Total cost of Stage 1 improvements: $375. Planned "Stage 2" mods: This is where is starts getting a little more pricey. However, you can keep your price...
