I have a 2009 srt8 challenger with a vortech and corsa exhaust. I will be getting $3000 for x-mas what should my next upgrade be? Long tube headers, heads and cam, up the boost. I'm at 500 rwhp. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate it.

or

put 1500 0n the 4 and 1500 on the 27, spin the wheel and make some money.
not enough for trans upgrade, headers and you won't pass emisions. if you up the boost you risk poping the motor. cam and heads and you won't get traction, probaly have a hard time now.
buy some wheels and tires.

Is the car paid off? If not, apply it to the principal.
Not as fun but practical.

Definitely agree with this if you havent already. Why spend tons on mods if you dont even own the car.

If you are already at 500HP why put a ton more $$ into the car. Either help pay down the principal on this car... or another car... or a house... or put it in the bank for an emergency fund if you don't have one.

Having an SRT8 with that much HP is a ton more than most of us already have. Enjoy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like SRT 5939 said unless you are doing better than most of us with superchargers? Get some nice wheels and tires to put that power to the ground.

wheels and tires, you can change the pulley and get it tuned all for less than 3k, don't put heads and cam on a blown stock bottom blow that motor up and then build and add heads and cam
