Well after much debate and doubts about doing this I have decided to pull the trigger and get it done. Here is some background to explain why I went this route. The Mistress has 112K miles on her right now. I was afraid of taking a gamble and throwing a supercharger on her and waiting for it to take a crap. Would it have happened I don't know but why taking a chance of having to do this all over.:str: So after talking with some friends who like to track their Challengers. I decided to go with Arrington Performance. They will be installing a forged 392 block, 274 Comp Cam with Phase limiter, Phase 6 heads, blue top soleniods, and tuning. The build will be NA. Talked to Wyatt at Arrington to lock in my place in their schedule. So the Mistress and me will be heading up to Arrington on monday to get the work done. I will be flying back home and hopefully be flying back in a week to pick her up from her face lift !!! Can't wait to get this done!!:smileup:

Sounds great JETTECH104! Going to be doing the same later this year except I have a E-force sitting on top right now. If you have never been up to Martinsville you are in for a treat. I've been three times to Arrington, you will be impressed. Good luck and will be waiting for the outcome. Your Mopar will be in the best of hands!

Well I dropped of the Mistress today at Arrington. Scott (3838) dropped his SRT8 off for some work. We convoyed together from Atlanta and on our way up we stopped at Greensboro airport and picked up Stewart who was picking up his car from Arrington. Afterwards he gave us a ride back to the airport. Now the wait begins!!!

I hear you about the wait, i know from experience that it can be a nerve racking thing but in the end its all worth it, good luck!!

Slowly coming along, hehe. Been following this thread. Plan on getting mine stroked to either a 392 or 410 down the road. Really looking forward to seeing the dyno results of your build. :)
