    Only thing I plan on doing to mine is a stickier tire in the back. Other than that I am just going to enjoy it as is. .........for now lol

    Anything that improve traction. That's all the car needs in my opinion.

    Thread update I ended up putting k/w Adj coilovers on car ran for one yr and love the results took a couple of times adjusting till I got them adj properly. Was very lucky to find a guy on another forum that had brand new front and rear strut braces for sale powder coated Hemi orange bought and installed those as well very happy with the way the car feels now. Have a splitter being made for front of car. Can't wait it's been 3 weeks they only make to order so should be getting soon, took the stripes off side of car bought some more wrap matl and wrapped accents on several parts of car. Changed all my lug nuts to black chrome with locks and changed my brake pads to carbon fiber ceramic. Still running my wheelites prototypes for durability tests. And yes I love them. That's just about it for now waiting till end of may to see if I can get used killer chiller with bypass or if I will be paying more for a new one. Either way one is going to get put on car before it gets hot. Thanks for the interest In thread.

    Having worked in a franchised dealership, I would hesitate doing anything that could even remotely void the warranty on the engine. The manufacturer adjusters have some margins to allow for certain claims, but not much. I have a '16 Scat Pack, but the mods, except for the strut tower braces, catch can, and window tint are all OEM. If something happens, you might win your claim, but there are cases that have taken some owners at least a year to get the manufacturer to warranty the owner's claim. I'd wait until the engine warranty has expired. Just my 2 cents.

    Thankyou for the input, I have been hesitant to mod motor because of known supercharger issues with bearing failures. Leaves me another 42 months to think about how to turn up power without sacrificing warranty on driveline. Appreciate the post.

    From what I understand, Magnuson made the bearings that were failing, but that has since been corrected. I would just hate to see you go through such grief if something would happen and you filed a warranty claim that was denied.

    Update for you. Wow, is this long overdue. So I didn't do the lower pulley. Did the upper. Easier, cheaper and more boost. 4 pounds for the upper. 2-3 pounds for the lower. Barton shifter, carbon fiber drive shaft. Aftermarket PCM. Exhaust is staying stock. 10's in the back 9s in the front. Had the hood and side mirrors painted matte black. Got a catch can black with clear barrel. Hellcat etched on top. She made 801 RWHP on a Dynojet. Oh and since I roasted the factory clutch at the track last summer:( on an 11.2 sec run:D (with a stick shift on a very hot day...and the sun was in my eyes....and I just ate....) had a Mcleod installed. Car is just crazy fun.

    305 M/T SS on the rear for daily driving. 305 M/T R's on the rear for the track. 8 year/75000 extended warranty.
    Done Modding. The HC is perfect as is for me.
