  1. Air to air. Never had a screw. I loved the Procharger, but I went through 3 engines and decided it was time to make a change. Had nothing to do with the D1, just parts issues that could have been potentially avoided with a bit of due dilligence on my part. The procharger was kick ass!! Big red race valve, made a bit over 700 at the wheels on 12 psi and ran consistent 10.5 at 130, it was a fucking blast. I struggle constantly with going back to a blower, probably a whipple. However, I just can't get over the hump on spending money on a depreciating asset at this point. Most times on my car I only spent money when shit broke, and it was often Smart call would be to buy a Hellcat, but again, don't want to spend the money. My car NA is around 11.5 in good DA, don't need a rollbar, shit has not broke in a while "knock on wood" and it has lasted close to 20,000 miles. I do have a 150 shot of nitrous that I have fun with once in a while, that helps a bit
  2. I only have experience with a Procharger, no coolant needed
  3. https://www.surfky.com/index.php/muhlenberg/news-muhlenberg/131320-chase-ensues-after-driver-speeds-away-from-ccpd CENTRAL CITY, Ky. (7/16/18) — A 30-year-old Nashville, Tennessee man led police on a chase from Wendy’s Restaurant parking lot in Central City along a portion of U.S. 431 shortly before 6 p.m. Thursday. Central City Police Department said Patrolman Chris Cummings responded to the Wendy’s parking lot on South Second Street to the report of a suspicious person. When he arrived, Cummings spoke with Darin Wilson, who was driving a 2016 Dodge Challenger in the parking lot. After Cummings asked for Wilson’s operator’s license, Wilson fled south on South Second Street and onto U.S. 431 South toward Drakesboro with Cummings in pursuit. CCPD said because Wilson had several near collisions with other vehicles, Cummings cancelled his pursuit for safety precautions. A short time later, Wilson’s vehicle was stopped when Logan County Sheriff’s Department deployed spike strips in Logan County. Wilson was charged by LCSO and taken to jail. Wilson was charged on Muhlenberg County warrants for first-degree fleeing and evading police/motor vehicle, two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment/police officer, four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, reckless driving, speeding more than 26 MPH over the limit, disregarding a traffic control device and driving on a DUI suspended license. Wilson is being held in the Logan County Detention Center, where he faces other charges by LCSO.
  4. I know there have been plenty in the past, but lets get this party started with this one. http://www.lex18.com/news/woman-arrested-for-raising-cane-at-winchester-car-dealership A Madison County woman was arrested accused of "raising cane" at a Winchester car dealership. Laqueeta Penman and her boyfriend went to the Rod Hatfield Dealership in Clark County to trade in their car. They got a Dodge Challenger, but Penman says her boyfriend changed his mind. She says the problem started when they tried to get the old car back - there was a disagreement about money and getting the key back. According to the citation, Penman was "raising cane" at the dealership. Investigators say a deputy asked her to leave several times when she was being disorderly but she wouldn't. Penman and her boyfriend are accused of fighting a deputy after he tried to arrest Penman. The citation says the deputy tried to use a taser, but Penman grabbed it out of his hand. "I don't know who was the scariest. Either it was the detective attacking me was the scariest, or the people at the car shop who watched it. It was 20 people and no one helped," Penman said. "I was getting beat down there." LEX 18 tried to speak with witnesses at the dealership, but a manager said there was no comment. Penman is facing several charges including assaulting a police officer and disarming a police officer.
  5. https://patch.com/north-carolina/mooresville/armed-robbery-report-mooresville-food-lion MOORESVILLE, NC — Iredell County Sheriff's Office is investigating a Monday morning robbery of the Food Lion grocery store on Williamson Road by two suspects claiming to have a gun, according to a local report. The suspects in the robbery were two black males, one of whom was wearing a black and white shirt, Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell told WSIC July 16. The pair demanded cash, which they put in a plastic bag, according to the report, which noted that "it is unclear if a firearm was actually displayed during the robbery." They fled the scene in a grey Dodge Challenger with a silver gas cap. This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes available.
  6. Badass. I would not spend that much money, but it is still kick ass. https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/1969-dodge-charger-hellcat-restromod-can-get-behind/ The 1969 Dodge Charger is an iconic muscle car and its styling cues can still be seen in newer models such as the Challenger Hellcat. While the Challenger still looks pretty good after a decade on the market, it doesn’t hold a candle to the classic Charger. Bumbera Performance decided to fix that by combining the best of both worlds and creating the 1969 Charger Hellcat. Looking like it just rolled off the assembly line, the Charger has a stock appearance but a few clues hint at the power underneath the hood. Among the changes are a custom Magnaflow exhaust and upgraded brakes which hide behind five-spoke alloy wheels. While there’s no denying the exterior looks fantastic, much of the interior carryovers from a modern Dodge. As a result, the car has a lost some of its original charm. That’s unfortunate, but the Charger does have modern conveniences such as air conditioning, a push-button ignition and an infotainment system. Of course, the most notable change occurs under the hood as the model has been equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 engine that produced 707 hp (527 kW) and 650 lb-ft (881 Nm) of torque in stock form. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. The Drive reports the car was built for Solomon Hill who plays basketball for the New Orleans Pelicans. He appears to have pretty good taste in vehicles, but the model likely came at a sizable cost. Bumbera didn’t go into specifics, but said creating a similar car would run between $100,000 and $250,000 – depending on the level of modification.
  7. Great video. My garage is not that clean 5 minutes after I clean it.
  8. Yea, maybe not a nice topic, but always fine to share for the lessons to be learned. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-dodge-challenger-big-rig-crash-20131111,0,3505518.story#axzz2l0TSDEtl By Ari BloomekatzNovember 11, 2013, 10:43 a.m. The driver of a Dodge Challenger slammed into a big rig Monday morning, shearing off the car's roof. The crash, which occurred at 1:10 a.m. at the offramp of the southbound 605 Freeway at Washington Boulevard in Whittier, seriously injured the driver of the car, according to the California Highway Patrol. The driver of the big rig failed to stop at the end of the offramp and made an illegal left turn "directly into the path" of the car, the CHP said. The Challenger became lodged underneath the truck, KTLA reported, its roof sheared off by the force of the impact. The driver of the big rig tried to drive away from the scene, the CHP said, but according to KTLA his truck stopped working a short time later and he was taken into custody. Officials said the driver of the Challenger sustained major injuries and was in serious condition.
  9. That would suck
  10. I think quite a few forums are dying, most everyone just does Facebook these days. However, all the Autoguide ones still get good traffic, but they advertise the shit out of them. OST quit being a vendor on here for 2018 as well.
  11. I haven’t read a thing about the redeye, nor watched the video, sorry speedy. But somehow Dodge has a way of keeping sales going on a 11 year platform, it is amazing to me.
  12. I modified a 6.1 to a 426, thitek heads, medium sized cam, long tubes, no cats, 2800 stall, SHR viking NAG1, i think that is all. Runs 11.5 to 11.7 in decent DA, 10.7 or so with a 150 shot.
  13. Hope you are well sir.
  14. http://abc7.com/3-pedestrians-killed-in-bloomington-crash/3649125/ BLOOMINGTON, Calif. (KABC) -- Three pedestrians were struck and killed when a car veered out of control in Bloomington Sunday night.Police say a Dodge Challenger was heading eastbound on Slover Avenue around 8:35 p.m. when the driver lost control and the car left the roadway, crashing into four pedestrians on the sidewalk and then striking the wall of a building.Three of the pedestrians died at the scene and the fourth was transported to a local hospital.The California Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the collision.
  15. http://www.lasvegasnow.com/news/suspected-drunk-driver-kills-1-pedestrian-injures-another/1244351421 LAS VEGAS - A woman is dead and a man critically injured after being struck by a suspected drunk driver just outside the Hard Rock Hotel early Sunday morning. Police responded to the collision just before 1 a.m. near Harmon Avenue and Paradise Road. Captain Nick Farese with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told 8 News Now that the victims were walking on the sidewalk when the suspect struck them with his Dodge Challenger. "Our pedestrians were doing exactly what we're asking them to do -- walking on the sidewalk. They weren't jaywalking; they weren't in the roadway. They were walking on the sidewalk and because of somebody choosing to drink and get behind the vehicle, now we have somebody who lost their life and we have somebody who was hurt," Farese said. According to Metro Police, the suspect fled the scene after striking the pedestrians. NHP troopers were able to track down his vehicle thanks to descriptions provided by witnesses at the scene, they said. The suspect was arrested and charged with felony DUI. Metro Police said a female passenger was in the vehicle with the suspect and is cooperating with the investigation.
  16. haha, never heard that. I would probably Whipple it, nothing wrong with ProCharger though, I loved mine, just like to hear that whine. Just keep in the back of your mind the NAG1 may shit the bed, and keep it under 7 psi for ring land safety.
  17. You would be crazy if you bought something other than a Hellcat, they are fucking amazing.
  18. Good point Linda, I would buy a used Hellcat before anything else, hands down.
  19. Seems like they are a 1/2 second quicker than the NAG1 with factory 3.06 gears.
  20. what?
  21. Automatic for sure.
  22. Supercharge it and done has been the saying forever, but that is not quite the entire story. You can boost a 6.1 and keep at 7 PSI or less on a good tune, and should be good. The NAG1 may give you issues after a while, so keep that in mind. I have had a D1 Procharger on 12 PSI on a 426 with 715 RWHP, and that was a fucking blast, but pretty much overkill on the street. The NA 426 right now is maybe 525 at the wheels, never had it on a dyno. But I don't have to worry about a rollbar, and it really is fun as shit to drive on the street.
  23. I have a 6.1 based 426 stroker with Thitek heads and it runs consistent 11.5's in good DA, perfect NA car. I think the comp is 9:1 or so. Do you have specific questions?
  24. Kick some ass!
  25. http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/Tampa-police-Illegal-street-race-injures-two-driver-sought_168919307 TAMPA — A 23-year-old driver faces charges after police said he engaged in an illegal street race Wednesday that left himself and another driver injured. Michael Heiman faces charges of racing on public streets, aggravated careless driving and driving with a suspended license and was also issued several traffic citations. The incident took place at about 11 a.m. in the 11300 block of N Florida Ave. Witnesses said they saw Heiman’s blue 2012 Dodge Challenger speeding south on Florida Avenue while racing a white Challenger. Both exceeded the posted speed limit, police said. Heiman’s car switched from the inside to the outside lane to avoid stopped traffic, police said. But then he spun out of control and slid into the northbound lanes and oncoming traffic, police said. The blue Challenger struck a black 2005 black Buick sedan. Heiman and the other driver were both taken to Florida Hospital Tampa for treatment of what was described as "severe but non-life threatening injuries." Police are still searching for the white Challenger and looking to identify the driver. They may also have a partial tag number for that car.
