Just walked out with my 5.7l Challenger T/A PLUS yesterday. Already I am thinking of what I can do to make it a better ride. Not necessarily concerned about speed...sorry guys looking more for DIY MODS that can increase the longevity of my powertrain, smoothness of the ride and yes even if its only by 1 the mpg. So far the only thing ive heard of is an oil catch. More help please!!! Almost forgot tips in general on how to take care of her please. For instance ive never had a car I cared about the paint job for until now. Any lessons learned of does and donts? What fuel should I use? 89 okay?

You list it as a 6speed, you need to use 91 or higher as per the manual, 89 is for the automatics.

Welcome from the Eastern Panhandle of WV!
Thank you! And my what a beautiful Scat Pak you have there. I wanted my T/A in gomango orange originally but Yellowjacket is all I could get my hands on. Didn't want to wait too long and miss my opportunity to get one all together! My dealer told me they aren't making anymore T/A's in 2019
