  1. Already have a one peice aluminum drive shaft from DSS. Going to pick up a Getrag ASAP
  2. Well it's finally going to happen, I've got my ducks lined up and within the next 3 months I should be dropping off my 2013 at Steve Whites for a blower install and long tubes. Luke there has been great to deal with and answered all my retarded questions...like many of you guys have in the past! Now I'm at the point of trying to decide which PD I'm going to go with....I've read and read, watched vid after vid, and I'm as close to a decision as I was last month.... I've been debating between the 2.8 LC KB, or the 2.9 Whipple.....honestly the Maggie isn't exactly out of the equation. Speedy has proven the Maggie can do some impressive performance, but I remember him saying if he had it to again he would have went Whipple ( that's still true? ). So my future plans are not going to be crazy, when the motor is forged ( auto replaced ) I'm not planning on hunting 9's...it's going to be a fun car to "play" with. With that in my head the Maggie seems like prob the easiest and smartest choice from what I understand the driving characteristics are the best and is easiest to tune....but the allure to a twin screw and potential I hear for the Whipple and KB is hard to ignore...I don't want to be wishing I'd made a different choice in a couple years. I get the impression the KB is of course an awesome PD but it's aimed more for the hardcore, is the Whipple that mid ground between the Maggie and KB? I read a lot of iAT concerns with the KB ( also read customer service problems there too ). The info I found between Whipple and KB is distorted by arguments and generalized...can you guys give me your thoughts on what someone like me would be more suited with? Current aim is around 500 rwhp, after forging 700 rwhp....better yet, i don't care about dyno numbers only ETs...current aim is high 11s ( I'm hoping I can get high 11s, is that dreaming?) after forging 10s...
  3. Do more research, you will find the 6.4 cam in the 5.7 has terrible reviews for the most part from those that actually race, instead of those that brag about racing
  4. Eric told me can’t get the shift points above 5800 with the stock tranny. So at this point it’s my limiting factor. I’m trying to save up for a tranny now ( and rear ) so I can up the boost and also get better shift points
  5. Picked the car up this morning! Holy cow what a day what a day!!! So just a summary; forged 392, stock 5.7 eagle heads, HellCat cam, with the 2650 Edelbrock huffin & puffin 6 little psi with the typical support mods, 90mm THrottle body, LMI intake and SRT headers & mids with a Corsa Sport catback....586rwhp & 593 rwtq, through the stock auto 5 speed and converter, let alone stock open diff 3:06 rear. Can’t even get the Car to rev past 5650rpm or it would make more. But this was enough to make a friends TrackHawk land behind me 3 times in a row ( not from a dig, rolling ).On one run I gave him the hit and reeled him in!! I’m holding the car back with the stock tranny and the low boost and Eric is mad at me for it!! When I can get the funds strait I’m coming back to up the boost....originally I was going to stop at say 8-10 psi...To Hell with that, I’m going strait to the tippy top next round!!! Boost is addictive!!!!! But yes I am very very happy with the numbers even though low, it’s obvious the potential is there if I could let Eric bring it out. I’m making about 70rwhp & 100+ rwtq more than I was with the stock motor at 8-9 PSI!!! I am so amazed the stick heads are not the huge limit I thought they may end up being, of course I’m sure there is more there but just adding the 392 and a Little HellCat cam really brought forth potential I can actually touch and feel. Thank you Eric and the A2 Speed crew!!! You guys are making my dreams come true here and I can’t thank you enough!! Drivability is much better than with the stock shortblock, don’t really know why but I’ll take it. Much smoother and the little part throttle laggy thing is no where as intrusive as before. I’m excited to see how it goes as the engine breaks in more!!
  6. You won, I watched the vid...you plainly said you did win.
  7. And the bonuses keep adding up!!
  8. Really nice, been fantasizing about one for a long time. I had an SS Trailblazer back in the day and not going to lie, to this day one of my favorite vehicles ever, these look like an awesome replacement.
  9. Best of luck bro, I really hope this gets you strait. You don’t deserve anymore problems.
  10. So let’s hear about the Jeep, what’s the review? Good and bads??
  11. http:// Almost ready....really almost!!
  12. http:// Pretty
  13. Lmao! I see what you did there! They are busy busy, guess that’s a good thing for our platforms, more busy they are, the more enthusiast there must be which leads to more aftermarket support. I’m keeping a positive attitude while I wait!
  14. Well, it’s next weekend and unfortunately been pushed back again to next weekend again....so looking forward to next weekend....again! Happy to keep everyone updated, really amazed at the huge amount of interest! Have a good weekend!
  15. So not this weekend but next weekend I should be picking up my ride after a long wait! I’m very excited to see it again and actually hear it run with a fresh abeit larger motor. Also be nice piece of mind knowing it can withstand boost pressures much more than it will endure for some time to come. *Now to worry about the tranny!!
  16. I’m honestly not trying to kick you while your down, but have you considered going burrito...less problems and faster
  17. This adds weight, not much for adding weight! The stock system sounds pretty good, might would consider adding the upgrade sub in the rear that the manufacturer offers
  18. Love the color! I picked the Challenger but I’m constantly thinking about the Charger, it’s rare a manufacturer makes two cars I like equally in such a close category
  19. That’s a damn good car! Meticulously built and maintained!
  20. It’s a fact, behind every man keeping it together is a better woman pouring glue on him behind the scenes.....mine pulls pieces off time to time just as a reminder to keep my shit strait!
  21. From my understanding it is all still available abeit just not from the original owner(s)
  22. Really!! A missing bolt!! You mean to tell me we (as in you) got grounded last weekend due to a damn bolt!! I knew it, I started to take that jack and get under the car, I just freaking knew it....damn...well at least your up and at it with little pain in the end. A damned missing bolt..
  23. Amazing woman, have no clue how she does it!! Cherish her! Congrats and enjoy the time!
  24. Repost
  25. Lmao!!! The Rock claimed some blood for sure, the track prep seemed real good. I was surprised Friday at how many runs were available. It really sucked not having mine but I know it was eating GG up with his car sitting on the sidelines while we watched run after run. When mine is back home and ready for action, I’m going to take a trip back to the Rock for a few passes, I normally go to Fayetteville Dragway for their 1/4, but after my decade plus absent they have upgraded the Rock substantially, on track anyways. The pavement looked good and had some bite! Greg I’m expecting you to come me down and teach me some things when I do make that trip!!
