take it to a dyno. it would of been great if you would of gotten a base line dyno so you know for sure how much HP you gained with your mods.

Why stop?

You won't stop. I keep saying that that's enough and every time I get 1 thing put on I find another I need. The last time I put my sequencail lights on and the next week SOLo made an offer I couldn't refuse for CF2 and there goes another $825.
As far as HP (like said) if you don't have a baseline you'll never know. Dynos are all differant so you need a baseline and use the same dyno after mods. Your not looking at a lot but if it's like mine it feels like alot more power with the CAI and tune.

It's never ending. Most people say the CAI only adds 5 HP and the tuner just gets the best of what you already have. Mine sure don't feel that way but that's what the people that do baseline test and then after test say.

Sorry, we can't help you. You have Hemi fever and there is no known cure! We are all quarantined on this forum. The symptoms can only ease, somewhat, by doing mods and running your car at the drag strip. :woot:

There are so many variables even two cars off the same line will have a few hp difference. Without a baseline it will be hard to tell. You can be increasing midrange hp without gaining top end hp so your end numbers dont raise but the car will still be faster.

Guess i should just let the car do the talking,had a srt8 charger come up on me like a shark on a baby seal the other day.we were cruising at highway speed side by side & he gave me the go siginal.all he saw was my rear bumper at the end of this little run.double tapped my brake lights & let off.my wife is yelling punch it the whole time.he came back beside me & gave me the thumbs up.i think we were both suprised.i love this car man.

no you are totally out of line !
to keep it simple with bolt ons only a lot of the gains claimed have already
been accessed,
ie: 25 hp gain by predator for the most part air /fuel optimization
18-23 gain by K & N also a/f gains
DOES NOT EQUAL 48-55 hp. gain
FYI JMO!

That's who I got mine from and they will return your money if you don't like them and return them. If you have a Mygig look into the camera mod too, It's great.

I would agree for the most part that u have gained about 25 rwhp....that is about 30 hp at the engine though.....so you would not be out of line by thinking your running about 400-410 hp.
