I believe the coolant is 10yr/100k service intervals. Just run the OE stuff if you don’t feel like doing a full flush. Otherwise, distilled water with water wetter is the way to go of you don’t drive...

I have more noise with my solid bushings, but I’m not usually sensitive to that stuff. The drastic difference they made to the feeing of the car more than make up for whatever downside could be.

I really don’t think it’s an engine performance issue - look at all the V6 and 5.7 Challengers out there. Quite simply, the design and packaging doesn’t resonate with most casual buyers.

With 420 at the wheels I doubt it has upgraded heads and cam. Also, your post is extremely vague and doesn’t explain at all about your driveline issues.

Great updates! Will you be at TNiA at the end of the month?

As for that clutch spring, why not just remove it entirely? That’s the best thing I did to mine (I’m running a Monster LT1S).
