    Who in the Z has put forged internals in their 5.7? What did they cost when all was said and done? It will be a long while before I get this part of my dream list. I'm just doing homework and wanting to hear lessons learned and money spent. Thanks for any and all input.

    Hey everyone. My brother has been a mechanic for many years and while talking shop the other night, he informed me that he's worked on four, 5.7 hemis that wound up having to have the lifters completely redone around the 100k mile mark. He did tell me none of those 5.7s were challengers and that...

    Has anyone mounted an oil catch can while still having the stock air intake on? I'm driving to the Summit Racing store in McDonough, GA today and if the catch can won't mount because of the passenger side of the stock air intake I was thinking about going ahead and picking up the Injen CAI and...

    I recently had my stock 2016 challenger rt go through the 64,000 mile service at my local Dodge dealer. The tech was very helpful and answered all of my questions. He told me everything looks really good on the car when it was up on the lift. Something that I forgot to ask him about was the...

    Stock exhaust on the 2015 is 2.5 diameter, yes? Looking to do electric cutouts on my car in the near future, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the BadlandzHPE high performance stainless steel low profile dual kit. I'm trying to go for something low and growly, and loud but not Borla Atak...

    Hello Everyone, My name is Angel, I'm 28, from Orange County, California and I drive a stock 2017 Challenger RT 5.7 Yellow Jacket. Based on my reading of many of the threads, I now hope to tune, supercharge and possibly delete the resonators (not 100% sure yet since it's an 8 speed.) These are...

    I know some people do a header swap from stock R/T headers to stock SRT headers instead of going aftermarket. Any benefits to this and is the swap straight forward or is there some conversion required and any good gains from this? My question about this swap is that if you were to swap the SRT...
