hemipowerv8 will become famous soon enough

I put an 85mm on my Challenger and noticed great throttle response improvement. (other mods are LMI CAI, Flowmaster cat back and Diablo custom tune).
Dyno indicated about 4-5 ft lbs gained (when Tb was the ONLY addition) but that is throughout the low and mid-range which is where I wanted more power as that's where we drive the most...once I could tune it the guy that did my custom tune said that it was VERY beneficial and on a 392 he would suggest the ported 87mm but I didn't spring for the extra expense again for +2mm porting.

I plan to run whatever Matt suggests on my 2013 Sport CC 4x4 if Ram ever gets around to building it for me...ha. Probably the 87mm and an S&B intake.
Mods: Tint, Line-X spray in, PD emblems, Weathertech mats, Honeycomb grille, Mopar tow hooks, Magnaflow 18" and Y, Bilstein 5100s @ 2.1" & TGC rear spacer .75", Toyo All terrains 35x12.50x20, 5" black tips, BakFlip tonneau cover, 87mm tb
Next: Gorilla lifetime lug nuts, CAI, Diablo tune.
