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!

Also just noticed questions about DS and my tranny. My tranny is completed upgraded by Mike at L&M and he'll be adding SRT paddle shift capability to it this week.

As for DS, They provided me with a safety tune at first and then Josh at HHP did the final. I found DS to be nothing short of professional and instant in their replies.

Nah, this is a cruiser for me so I'll be sticking with my 22" SRT wheels and 305/45/22 Goodyear Forteras.

This is an awesome build! Complete opposite to what I'm doing. Tell me more about the paddle shifters Mike is installing?

As for the coilovers: Mike and I are sourcing them right now. It will be different than his as I'm after a modest drop and different handling requirements.

As for the paddles: I sourced the paddles, concept and wiring. Mike is doing the install. She is a fairly simple deal since I have push button shifting already via my column shifter. Remember, I'm the dude that got rid of his center console/slap shifter for the room and column shift? This was the real reason why. It's like a two wire hookup now to do complete paddle shifting in a Ram.
