Guy's 300 Srt8 Build

33 posts in this topic

I am at it again.  Things are now starting to come together  The car is at TI Dyno in Ashtabula having the rear cradle completely rebushed and at the same time a 3.06 Getrag with DSS 1400hp axles being installed (Thanks Frank!).

 

The Billy Briggs/BFNY shortblock is back in my garage and assembly will begin soon with a whole host of East Coast Moparts pieces.  A Steve Franks/BFNY monster cam  has been installed and degreed by Erik. An Arrington worked 6.1 manifold and 90mm throtlte body will fuel this through SRT4 injectors with a 6.4 fuel pump pushing the fuel.  Thitek worked 6.1 heads with 2.08" intake valves will provide for .031 quench which will be great for the100-150 shot that will eventually be sprayed.  The engine will breath through a complete ARH exhaust- longtubes, mids and catback.  Got a hell of a deal at the PRI show earlier this year.  Power will flow through a FTI 4k converter and Pramount  transmission.  Engine pieces were powder coated by Paragon Metalworking.

 

I will provide periodic updates as all of this comes together.post-789-0-90877100-1491481107_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-40397800-1491481108_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-21425200-1491481109_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-10149600-1491481118_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-57885200-1491481119_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-52012800-1491481120_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-48216700-1491481121_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-17381500-1491481122_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-19903900-1491481123_thumb.jpgpost-789-0-06763700-1491481124_thumb.jpg

Lovin the powdercoat color. .  .. looks a bit like the destroyer grey. 

 

 

Will this car be track only or will you be tearing up the streets in Ohio as well?

Congrats on the new ride, Guy. I know I've been out of the loop for a while but what happened to the magnum?

Hi Pete !  Decided to take a break and rethink the course I was on.  Parted the Magnum out, a lot of good stuff now lives in many of the MSHS cars !  Wanted to get back into a car I could drive on the street if I wanted to and always wanted a 300 from the day the first one hit the streets.  The 05-08 SRT8's are already classics in my opinion.

Just getting started with assembly.  I think I have everything finally.  If it was not rebuilt, it is new.  I will be putting some miles on this car so not taking chances .  All new sensors as well.  Even though a 6.1 block, I am going to leave it black with the gunmetal grey parts as accents.  The grey looks a bit blue under flourescent light but will be perfect under the hood.

Got the car back from TI Dyno, the rear cradle has been rebushed thansk to a bit of help from BFNY, and the 3.06 Getrag and DSS 1400Hp axles are in.  Started putting the engine together tonight and made some progress.  Will drop the shortblock in tomorrow and start bolting stuff back together.  Waiting on a quote from American Muscle Performance (AMP) on the N2O setup..

Interesting color

It was supposed to be gunmetal grey but under the fluorescents in my garage, it comes out a lot more blue.  We shall see what it looks like in the bay.  It is powder coated so at least it is durable :rolleyes:

Back at it, finally dropped the shortblock in as a unit, this works very well if you jack the car up about a foot, angle the engine-trans combo about 60 degrees, slides right in.  Hint:  get the block/engine in place witht hte motor mounts not yet in place, far easier and makes this a 15 minute job.   Bolted up the engine and trans.  Opened up the fender to accept the Legmaker True CAI.  DSS two piece chrome moly driveshaft bolted in.  From here out it is just a matter of bolting stuff up until I get to the fuel pump and N2O install. Progress!

To do:

  • Thitek 6.1 heads
  • ARH Headers
  • ARH full catback
  • Arrington ported intake and 90mm throttle body
  • Legmaker True CAI
  • Belts and hoses/coolant
  • Lakewood shocks 50/50 rear and 90/10 front
  • 6.4 Fuel pump install
  • Nitrous Outlet plate system ( I will put this in a separate thread as many have asked for a N2O install thread.)

Done:

  • 306 Getrag install with Drive Shaft Shop 1400hp axles and DSS 2 piece chrome moly driveshaft
  • Rear cradle fitted with all new poly bushings from HHP
  • Fender opened up for Legmaker CAI
  • BFNY/Billy Briggs Performance shortblock in w/6speed mounts, new water pump, new alternator, all new sensors (crank, cam, water and oil) and many new sensor wiring connections
  • Trans refreshed by Paramount and installed

DSS for the win for getting the power back to the diff.   Some Thitek goodness with ARH longtubes bolted up and now in the car.  Far easier to drop the heads and headers in as a unit, they fall into place.59375b039d127_0606171855b1.thumb.jpg.5fe4496064fb2b799c6d720f6ec2a5da.jpg
