  1. Haha me too! Gonna try to use one on the Chevy. GLWS
  2. Huh? Even my Hellcat needs a Trinity
  3. Yep, this guy offers full car coverage on the Xpel clear bra (if you can afford it $$$$). He told me the material alone is like $1800 a roll and it only covers a few yards. The ceramic coating "stuff" comes in two or three grades....he has a 3 year and a 5 year but said for the price difference you're better off just doing the full 7 year stuff which he claims lasts practically forever on a garage kept vehicle like mine. I'm gonna contact him this week to get scheduled.....being able to just hose off the bugs and rubber on the rear quarters is enough for the price of admission. I believe the 7 year stuff package includes the wheels.
  4. Agree with Chuck. Seen too many folks go through a Hellcat clutch in short order. McLeod RXT FTW.
  5. I had always avoided clear bras because they seemed to be very noticeable and even yellow over time. However, I wanted to try to keep the rock chips to a minimum on Go Man Go, so I started reading up on them and found a local guy who really seemed to know his stuff and assured me that new products solved both problems and he recommended and used Xpel Ultimate. I decided to give it a whirl. If your local, this guy is the shizzle. The install is perfect and you guys know how OCD I am. It is flat out invisible. The installer uses only machine cut templates that exactly match the vehicle, and he surgically trimmed around the stripes so you can not tell where they meet. Same for the hood vent. Glad modern materials have solved the old problems. Now I don't have to worry about rock chips like I've had in the past. If you want to have this done, here are things I learned that make it much more invisible: 1. Machine Cut Templates ONLY - matches the car and you don't have someone trying to cut the material on the car to match 2. Wrapped edges (more protection and hides the edge) 3. No 3M. I'm told 3M has an orange peel look to it and is real thick which makes the line more visible 4. Make sure they know what they're doing on any trimming - my guy never actually cut the material, he used a scoring technique that allowed the material to break along an edge so scratching the paint was never a risk. I'm probably gonna have him come back and do a GTECHNIQ ceramic coating on the car. He told me a little about it while he was at the shop, and I did some reading. It'll bond with the paint and lasts 7 or so years, no waxing, no bird poop damage, and you can practically hose it off to get it clean it's so slick. The material is installed in this picture:
  6. Damn! That's awesome!
  7. Thats healthy for a bolt on 5.7 Dale. What were stock 5.7 making that day? Adding another 50rwhp is a tall order regardless unless younswitch to e85 or some like that.
  8. Gotcha.....ported 6.1 intake is definitely the way to go over the 6.4. 6.4 is a wierd intake that thorws off fueling. Theres a thread on it posted by Hemituner I think it was so skip that and do the 6.1. Unless the intake closely matches the TB I dont thinkmits worth anything and may actually hurt power delivery. On the stroker....a little is good for forced induction, a lot is not. My old motor was a 6.0 and did the business with a little Maggie blower on it. Word. Guy had my exact 6.0 only at much higher compression. Its hard to build for both NA and FI. My 6.0 was 9:1 and Guys was 12:1 if memory serves.
  9. The CAM question, unlikely most will have any idea. The VVT stuff is a bit of black magic it seems. I'd check with folk selling them. I believe OSTDyno has a few options. That's where you'll get your biggest increase. I found the HC TB adapter. I'm still scratching my head on that one. So go from a 95mm TB down to a 85mm adapter and intake. Sounds like no gains to me, but if you have access to test it maybe you'll be the first and prove it works. You're never gonna get to 450RWHP with bolt ons. That would be a 120RWHP gain. You might get to 400 or 410 pulling out every stop and a few thousand bucks, but that's a wild guess on my part. The 5.7 is 330 RWHP stock. Rather than ask us to guess, I'd just call one of the shops that have these packages and see what they say. OSTDYno, BFNY, and HHP would be good places to start. If you don't have money for a SC, then I wouldn't even start thinking about a stroker at this point. SC is the best bang for the buck by far and CHEAP all things considered.
  10. Who is telling you this will work as a combo at all? 6.4 intake has active runners and doesnt make any since for a 5.7. A 6.1 intake would be better and ported even better. HC tb is huge and dont think it will fit either 6.4 or 6.1 intake unless there is some adapter Im not aware of. 274 cam will make some power but tuning is a bear and usually expensive due to the dyno time involved to get it right. Unless your tuner is Mike at OST, Hemituner, or Josh at HHP you should be cautious with this one. Lots of cars never ran right again after other tuners tried this one.
  11. Most likely less than youre making now.
  12. Then Id save some more pennies. Boltons wont get you much and turbos can be a bit tricky.
  13. Supercharge and be done.
  14. Hey Shakenbake, start a thread on your car. Curious how the 4.5L Whipple is working for you. Any track times etc? How much boost on pump gas stuff like that. In the past big blowers like that were tricky on pump gas so curious if the Hellcat bypass system helped with some of that or if there are any compromises etc?
  15. And how many of you guys gave me crap for water marking my photos? Now you know why, same thing happened to me in the past so everything I post gets a watermark and all images have my copyright info embeded.
