  1. Yeah I’m excited! Can’t wait to see what it will do like this, i know it’s not all out and I’m leaving a lot on the table but Im really interested in what something like this can achieve just how much is modern manufacturers heads leaving out
  2. Well....not so reassuring with swap ideas....guess doing a 9”DSS swap is about the only answer or GForce.
  3. So new update!! Someone said...there will never be enough!!?? Well..... So A2 Speed is now working on a forged 392 to drop in my car!!! I am just too excited to even think straight! Going to use a HellCat cam, unfortunately sticking with my stock 5.7 heads...I say unfortunately and I do know I will be missing power but I’m also really curious about what the outcome will be with this combination. The stock eagles flow really well on the intake, they only suffer on exhaust. I’m thinking this is going to translate into a lot of low end torque of course trading of high rpm HP. We will see! I know I’ve heard of a few builds using the HellCat cam, but haven’t found any track or even dyno numbers. I know the cam won’t hold back power, I’ve seen 800+ with a HellCat cam. Going to be a shock going from blown 5.7 to blown and cammed ( little ) 6.4!! I can’t wait. Hopefully it’ll be done in time for the Rockingham event...even if not I’m still going to support Grandpa!
  4. Maybe HellCat swap, isn’t it considerably more durable? I don’t think you’ll even be able to purchase anything used in the Demon at this time
  5. I’d sing to it too! Happy B-Day!
  6. Spare Getrag?
  7. I’m actually thinking about doing a 392 build using the HC cam now
  8. Left the slip in the car ( at A2 In VA ) but it was a best of 12:48 I think @109 with a 2.0-2.1 60’....sad I know.... I know G, I need DRs to run it’s best time...but I’d like to see what it can do right off the street. But I most definitely want us to get to the Rock and really put the juice to it!
  9. Update. Dropped the car back off last Saturday to A2. Couldn’t pass inspections, kept failing due to “not ready” status for the O2 and catalyst. Also ran into the issue of leaning out in high rpms again for some reason. Not sure why this keeps coming up. Will be fine for a bit and it pops it’s little ugly head up again. Sold the 22” rims to a friend and got a set of 20” classics for now on the car. When it comes back home I’m going to get the inspection done of course, pop a fresh set of tires on and take a trip back to Fayetteville drag strip to see what my 1/4 will be with the smaller rims. Hopefully I can drop the ugly 60’ too! Not going to lie, little embarrassing running those times with the car last trip, hopefully I’ll get better at driving the car. I know ultimately I need DRs to get a real time but I’m hoping I can get low 12s or even high 11s with street tires....***What do you all think, is it possible, 11s on 20” streets???
  10. So it was only $1250 not $2500 for the cam....not rape, it was more a dinner date but ended with blue balls
  11. Any updates?
  12. Notice much improvement? Been eyeing the upper control arms for a bit.
  13. Good luck, it’s not a bad price, just hard to sell modded cars. Folks are either afraid they are buying someone’s problem or they want their own mod packages. Last project I sold I took a near 50% loss. Wish you all the best, it’s a beauty
  14. Ha! Last Kitty I ran into had trouble passing me ( like it was a struggle ), I’d love to see this race between you two!! I’ll cover 20% of that $5.00 wager!!
  15. Damn I want a 1.6 60’ lol!!
  16. Seen one today that was tuned, not sure what they made exactly but impressive. Love the little details about these cars, today was my first chance to look closely at one
  17. Lol!! Ok ok!! I will I will!!
  18. I know...I know!!!
  19. Made it down to Fayetteville track Sunday, with the 22” rims on Nitto 420s all I could muster was some sad 2.1 60’ and high 12s. Still had a blast, gotta get some different rims and tires ASAP! With the 60’ I was getting which were very inconsistent ( 2.1-2.6) with the same being trap speeds (105-109) I’m all over the map, I can’t even guess what it’s capable of (!) (?) but again I did have a ball all the same! Will try again very soon, just not sure if I can get rims and tires before my next venture...***Anyone want or know someone interested, will trade basically brand new 22” staggered ( 9”fronts/10.5 rears ) XOs for some more track ( and street ) friendly setup..let me know!!!
  20. Damn bro, you can’t seem to catch a break with this. No answers for you, just giving you some support, it’ll be worth it in the long run. Keep strong!
  21. There’s no doubt the HC cam is a good blower cam, but haven’t heard anyone trying it in a 5.7, with that said cost vs gain, personally don’t see it worth doing the cam...why not just wait until you forge the bottom end then add the cam at the same time, saving $ and guesses. Food for thought
  22. If I had a 21k trade in value, damned if a HellCat wouldn’t be on the menu especially if I’d been considering supercharging the later vehicle...just saying
  23. They look great!!! Where did you locate these? Are they replicas or the real deal ( assuming real deal! ) ? Any spacers required?
  24. Hey I'll check that out, thanks!!
  25. Eric was kind enough to let me pick up yesterday, on a Sunday! The drive back was wonderful, wife in her SS lead the way.....most of the time...but the car drove smooth as silk. I actually like the way the DSS drive shaft makes the car feel...more direct and smoother. I swear it seems smoother than before. There is a little metallic hollow sound time to time at low speed, it seriously nothing all that noticeable nor annoying. The ride into work this morning was an enjoyable smooth ride, akin to a GT car. I do feel as the car is much smoother feeling now. I'm happy to have her back! And again A2 Speed has been nothing but awesome to deal with, they have honestly went out of their way to help me and look out for me, it's almost like I'm part of the team, great feeling to know someone has your back and is there for you! Thanks again A2 team! A2 Speed has some really cool R&D going on Eric was kind enough to show me, really cool future coming our way in the Mopar community! Now I'm going to peddle my pennies back some more for a tranny and rear...and SB...and...Lol
