    I finally got everything done the way I wanted on my Charger SRT8, added the Razors Edge strut bar as well as the CF strut covers this week

    Also picked up a few of these dress up bolts and put them to good use

    Looks good! For some reason I really like the look of that intake manifold.

    No need for a blower at this point, OEM is 425HP, already added goodies like CAI, catback, port matched intake and TB, electric shift kit plus a tune

    Thanks, did a lot of sanding to smooth it before it was powder coated

    Here it is next to the OEM intake (decided not to go with red fuel rails and stuck with OEM chrome)

    It must be because it takes time and patience, once you reach geriatric age like me you can take forever to finish every little project

    I don't believe it has ever had groceries in it :)

    Just a sensible family sedan for driving the kids to school in

    G8's were on my list too, problem is there simply weren't enough for sale around me and the ones that I did find were priced very high

    That is what I am seeing too. How do you like the quality of the car? Anything feel cheap or stand out to you with Dodge?

    It has a couple small creaks here and there but nothing I didn't find in other cars in this price range (and above)

    Only thing I have had to do so far is routine stuff like oil changes, brakes, etc. They build these things to take the abuse and it shows. I didn't have a single concern about throwing it down the track for 4 runs last night.
