First question: In regards to the intake manifold, it was a choice made by me. Someone else can keep the 392 manifold and do just what MOPAR did at SEMA for the last two years. But that involves a compromise of an intake tube forced in between the fuse box and radiator, the loss of the mechanical fan and shroud, the need for a stronger e-fan and a bit of a hacked up look.

For me, that was just not worth a few ponies one way or the other. Keeping my 345 manifold, also a dual runner setup, allows me to have a stealth stock look and the 392 injectors plug right in.

Second question: No videos just yet but she goes back to L&M at the end of this week for stage two. When I get her back, I'll post a video and my dyno numbers from HHP.

And thanks for the compliments guys! This has been something I've wanted to do for years and being so close to the finish line now is both a great and a sad feeling!
