Im running JBA shorties and like them some like long tube headers (pacesetters I think?) and a nice exhaust system behind that, as for fans Im running summits single fan though Im looking at running a dual fan and going to a 2 row rad. As for rebuilt heads I would go after market unless they have upgraded the valves and maybe some porting. Hughes, eldelbrock have a few and I found these on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-DODGE-EQ...sories&vxp=mtr
I have found a few guys running them and love them. Also I would look into a SCT tune to take advantage of these mods and wake up even a stock set up.

It is with the SCT a program will be made to take advantage of the modes and "flash" your stock computer, from what Ive seen on the Hypertech it will on do top speed, re do the speedo and basically "unlock" the stock computer basically take the OE tune and give it a little ump. SCT does all of this plus more. I think on this sight Hemifever? is who does the SCT tunes shoot him a email he would be able to explain more tech info Im really bad at trying to put stuff in words.
