Once again, I have been rather busy since the last update! Now that the supercharger and tune is sqaured away for the most part, it was time to support the new horsepower a little better, so I installed a BuilderBill chromoly driveshaft and a 3.73 Getrag rear end and axles. I ended up going to LX & Beyond again in Ohio this year and planned to race the car, so these mods were a must in order to make sure that the car would do just fine out there. My first pass with the car was a 12.05@115. Im both happy and sad with that... On one hand, I know it is an 11-second car without question. But the fact that I just couldnt break into the 11s that day was frustrating, but I'll get there. For the first outing ever with the new setup in 3200 DA, 95 degree heat, and a 5,000 lb. race weight.... I'm not complainin!
I also picked up a new set of wheels just in time for this show! I went with the USW "D-LUX" wheels this time around.... had to get a fresh look for this show season! The color combo is actually a three-tone---Sublime face, black face lines and barrels, and the windows of the spokes and the flange is polished. I think they came out great! On to the pictures!
From left to right: Me, the HALO suicide two-door 300, and Simon's white SRT 300.... all bagged on UAS, all sportin USW wheels.

And it just wouldn't be a trip to the LX & Beyond show in Ohio without a quality burnout picture....
I ended up winning four trophies on the weekend. I wont two trophies in the paint and finish category and the underhood performance modifications category. Then I took home Best Charger, and Best of Show overall "Show and Go" award for the second straight year in a row. It is quite an honor to be acknowledged by my peers at a show where everyone's cars are all from the same LX platform, and it was great to see all of my friends from across the country once again!
Let me know what you think of the latest additions! And thanks to everyone who has commented. Even if I dont get a chance to get back to you, I'm definitely reading and appreciating all of your kind words!
To put it quite simply, Phase II is essentially complete... and I think I outdid myself this time! I decided to sell the Vortech setup I was previously running and opted to go with a 2.8L Kenne Bell supercharger in a black finish to compliment the engine bay. What a piece of art and fine craftsmanship this thing is.... Not only does it look fantastic, but it puts out some serious power to back it up. At 15 lbs. of boost, the car made 648hp and 597 ft./lbs. of torque at the wheels! I was shooting for at least 600, so this exceeded my goal considerably. As soonas I get the dyno charts, I will be sure to post a picture.
Rounding out the fuel system components are Mopar SRT4 Stage II injectors, 255lph Walbro fuel pump, Kenne Bell boost-a-pump, and -6 line from the tank to the Billet Tech fuel rails. Im already at the limit of what my current fuel setup can handle, so I will need to swap out some minor parts here and there to step it up even further. I think I would be happy with about 700 to the ground, but that is going to require some more drivetrain support to sustain that level. All in due time, I suppose.... on to the pictures!
First and foremost, a link to see (and hear!) the car on the dyno at Mr. Norm's Garage here in IL:
And as you can see here, the monster 4.5" intake tube just clears my valve covers and coil pack covers... what a relief!
Still got a few more projects currently in the works just yet, so Im far from finished. I should be updating this again within the next month to reflect even more upgrades. Stay tuned, as always!
I haven't had a chance to update this in a while, so I figured that now was as good a time as any. I have been pretty busy with the car, slowly piecing together a long time project over the winter. Decided to go with a complete stroker motor to back up the "show" with a little more "go." This was a loooong time in the making because I had to get everything together, part-by-part in order to make this happen. I did not want to do one thing, then tear it all back down to add something else... I wanted to get it all done in one shot. So this is the product of patience right here! On to the pictures:
ERL Performance 6.5L/397 stroker, 9:1 compression (for boost). Wiseco forged pistons, K1 crank, and K1 H-beam rods.
Next, I went with some PWR Street/Strip heads. 2.05/1.60 stainless valves, PSI 1511 springs, titanium retainers, bronze guids, viton seals, machined locks, and hardened locators.
Also going into this build was a custom grind supercharger cam, a Precision Industries 2800 stall converter, SRT lifters, forged pushrods, new timing set, 6.1 oil pump, and all the necessary bolts and gaskets to go along with it.
After you've got your parts squared away, it's always nice to have some install help from the best in the business! Erik Storms (aka Hemi31) from BFNY Performance came out to Chicago to assist with the install of everything. He is is the guy to talk to if you ever need ANYTHING done performance-wise. Here are the pictures of the build from start to finish:
New engine all prepped and ready to drop in and the SRT intake manifold I had been smoothing all along:
Now for the best part... since I was doing this major performance build, you know I had to keep it lookin good too! So I got into contact with my good friends over at Billet Technology down in Florida and had them make me up a few things to put my build over the top. Add some custom paintwork to the mix, and voila... here is the end result:
Black anodized valve covers, painted coil pack covers, full underhood dress-up kit with custom HULK engraving on all caps, black fuel rails, and power steering cover.
The finished product with painted intake manifold:
The air filter is a temporary solution until the supercharger goes on again after the motor is properly broken in and ready for boost. Phase II of this build will detail the supercharger install and the fuel system setup. Phase III will be the rear-end and transmission. I will be sure to get some video once the blower goes back on and we get her strapped to the dyno.... so stay tuned!!!
I have been doing a lot of shows lately and it seems like a lot of hard work, time, and effort is finally paying off! I won Best Chrysler/Dodge at HIN Chicago 2009, Best Dodge at DUB Chicago 2009, and I wont a total of 5 awards at the LX & Beyond show in Ohio this past July. And of course, Ive still been modding all along, so check out the latest.....

And my favorite picture from the weekend, thanks to Simon Matthews:
So I recently got back from my trip to California for the LX Spring Festival in Irvine. Had a GREAT time at the show, put faces to a lot of names, and had a blast with the car cruising on the west coast in the awesome weather! The following is a video that I took part in at USW while I was out there, followed by a number of varying pictures that were taken. Enjoy!

OK, so here's the latest update.... been pretty busy with the ride since the last time I updated this page!
Picked up some new custom painted and powdercoated USW Forged Wheels! Also, I finally got around to have some more airbrushing and paint work done on the rear end to coincide with the front a little bit more. Painted the roof black (which will look fantastic once I tint the windows), painted the rear quarter panel stripes on ABOVE the body line, painted the rear trunk stripe and emblems on, painted the rear spoiler Sublime with black tips to follow the side stripe, and painted the pockets of my Grip side skirts black. Finally, snagged a pic of the trunk setup... JL 13.5" W7 in a custom trunk setup wrapped in suede with green neons!
Let me know what you think!!
