Very cool, love the 300s! In seriously doubt a trained ear will pass this off as a stocker! Really want to see the end results, good luck!

The color favors gunmetal grey, I like it non the less.

Quick update, and a few pointers for those that may not have done this before.  When you put the push rods in, take extra care with placement, you can get them in the wrong hole in the head that is actaully a blind hole or oil return.  As a matter of course, after installing the rocker arms on one side, I bar the engine over and observe that every rocker activates and as they do mark them with a chalk mark to ensure that all push rods are seated properly.  I then repeat for the other side.  Rockers on, valve covers on and plugs in.  Slow steady progress, too may irons in the fire to work steady on this right now.

Caution - Powdercoating looks great and really can dress up parts.  However, you MUST run a tap into every hole and flush out any debri from the original blasting or coating.  It is very easy to have a bolt gall the alum in the hole if any debri is in there.  Don't ask me how I know. :angry:

I know this is a stupid thing. The bolts u have for your valve covers. Do you have any idea what the part number is. I have a 09 That has threaded studs similar and it is a bitch to put them on as clearance is at a premium.
Thanks

Intake on, injectors, fuel rail and lines, 90 mm Arrington throttle body, BT Catch Can and the most important item, A Legmaker True CAI.  Getting closer.  Still have the fuel pump, Mopar TCM, full exhaust, O2 sensors and monitor set up, etc but I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel!
