You gotta be fast to be "hated" bro....

And at this rate, that Chally will be as fast as your whip sooner than later.

Happy Humpday gang...

Modding on the challenger is done, at least the performance, i got a smoking deal on that exhaust, some guy was turning his car in as a repo, I gave him 250 for the whole thing

OOooh! Nice! Those are the best deals.

I coulda had a Corsa a while back when one of my Navy brothers traded his in. I couldn't get the time to get down to his place in my truck (motor was out) and he ended up trading it in with it still on there. :(

But it worked out....he's back in a 1LE now.

Always nice to get hooked up like that eh!

Thought of the day: Lifting engine is not as easy with a supercharger sitting against the firewall....

My wife has come to learn that "I will be in the garage for about an hour" always turns into "I didn't come to bed until 3am, I am sooooo tired". Lol.

Thanks for the offer, I got it all taken care of last night though. Nothing a lot of cursing and scratching my head couldn't knock out in 5 hours

After doing some research on-line, if you have longtubes those will be in the way and of course my engine wont go up hight enough due to the big brick sitting on top of the engine... Oh well, if it was easy everyone would do it right?

Might be a little while. As normal for me, when I upgrade something there is something else that decides it's too much power for it and it dies.

Master Cylinder is dying quickly. Got an "Ideal garage MC" on order.

Survival of the fittest for sure in your ride bro.....lol

Eventually everything weak will surface.

Did you do the fluid reservoir separation yet? I didn't notice when your car was in the other day. Been thinking that might be something more folks should be looking into.

Comes with the Kit I just ordered. Definitely a good thing for everyone to get regardless of power level. Using the brake res for clutch fluid is just plain stupid. All that nasty brake dust and junk in your clutch lines clog it up quick.....

I use to have to change my fluid before every track day or the clutch would stick to the floor at least one run.

One item that I could use your assistance on is in getting the new exhaust to cleat the cross brace so it does not rattel

Washers.

The ARH setup you picked up didn't come with that cross member spacer kit?

Been forever since I dealt with ARH, but I remember them having a cross member drop down kit.

I know that the MBRP ones do since the pipes are bigger and hang lower.

Not too hard to remedy however. Some washers between the body and tunnel brace and boom. Should solve the problem. I'll be (secret) busy tonight signing my life away and have some paintwork to do before Wednesday but shoot me a holler and I'll roll by to help you out if needed.

That sound can be disturbing as all get out.
