1st = CAI Let it breath.
Yes, something like thisA tint shop here also sells some kind of clear anti UV front windshield "tint" that supposedly keeps the car cooler by rejecting the hot sun rays...anyone have a clue about that?
After not having a front plate on for over 13 years i gotten pulled over twice for not having a front plate on my Grand Am. It was just a warning the first time but later on when I worked near Chicago I was pulled over and ticketed $35 for not having a front plate. I had a made a wire bracket but it tore the plate apart but since they were nearly 16 year old plates the state gave me new ones and I ended up drilling holes in the front. Wasn't happy about it but better than getting pulled over again. My Challenger has the front plate bracket and the dealer put the plates on both front and rear.My dealership said without explicit direction they are told never to install any front plate on any Challenger.
I have no plate for 8 years in a state where it’s required and never a word said.
Good stuff, and lots of 'down the road' ideas.Catch can is a must on the Hemi's in my opinion.
Manual or automatic? If manual a Barton shifter and synchromax.
Break it in, change your fluids out and use the SRT oil filer.
ZL1 add-ons pinch weld adapters. There are knock offs on Amazon for half the price but the ZL1 guys designed them so morally that is the more ethical route. Plus the ZL1 add on guys are great. If you plan on tracking they have an excellent tow hood/license plate receiver as well.
Strut braces are a pretty popular "early mod" for these cars.
Hellcat lower airbox and headlight tube. The AFE tube is a bit cheaper than the mopar tube and seems to fit a bit more securely.
Get a Tazer and the double bypass. That will keep you occupied for a while as you figure out all your hidden options.
Gravel lane? I hope you mean just your driveway.......if it's the actual road leading up to your home....YIKES!!!I have a Scat Pack Shaker on order, comments about the progress are in a different post on this forum. While that waiting game is playing out, the next best thing is to start planning mods for post-delivery. I am looking for the requisite bolt-on mods which are 'better sooner than later' mods. Performance & appearance mods are further down the road. Here is what I have come up with:
1) Catch can. Seems that custombilletstore.net is the preferred vendor to purchase from, correct?
2) Rock Guards. I do live up a gravel lane out in the country. Not sure whether OEM or aftermarket is better. Suggestions?
3) Sto-n-Go License plate bracket. I specifically ordered the car without a front plate bracket so that the dealership lot lackeys don’t find it in the trunk and think they need to start drilling the bumper.
4) Jack adapters for the pinch welds. Suggestions?
That’s the list of must-have’s I have uncovered to limit incidental wear & damage. What am I missing?

I am a bit OCD on my oil changes. Call it what you want, but I have two 300k+ original motor vehicles right now. So regarding the SRT oil filter...what makes it special? I have always been partial to WIX oil filters and frequent oil changes.
