Default What next?

Hello, I just purchased a 2010 R/T with 50,000 miles. It has a CAI and flowmaster . I was thinking about a jet stage1 & maybe try to find a set of underdrive pullies.

what do you guys think. I would like to also get a little bit better than 16.2 mpg that Im getting now. This should improve when I get the 305 20's off and get the front end back down.

I did it 30 miles to work everyday .

Any suggestions?

The jet stage 1 chip is a joke don't get it. Get a tuner if you want better mpg as well as a magnaflow exhaust to free up the exhaust flow. The hemi's like to breath and with a flowmaster exhaust all you're getting is sound.

Also, I'm curious, you said 305/20's on your truck. I thought the stock wheels on an RT were 22's. Do you not have stock wheels? Or maybe I'm just remembering wrong

It has some lift spacers with custom20's on it now. Its at the dealership now getting a free service, removing the spacers and I traded the custom wheels for a set of nice factory painted 20's with new tires 275 / ?? /20


I would do it , but they said they needed to do a 100point inspection b/s to get the 100,000 mile warr. Its free and they gave me a car to drive so


I may do something different with the wheels. I may remove all the stripes (decals) and paint the wheel a flat gold like the subru wrx wheels. My truck is blue and I have always liked those colors on the WRX.

My kids want me to tear it apart and paint it orange or sublime green. It would be cool , but so much work jamming it out. plus about $600 in materials.

Now back to engine mods. Im not sure about the pullies now I checked into them. Its hot here Im a bit worried about over heating.

Maybe someone will chime in.

Like previously sated ditch the Flowmaster. Get a trinity and your mileage will go up that is if you can keep your foot out of the throtle!

Swap the Flowmaster for a strait through magnaflow, skip the jet it is a fancy paperweight good good for nothing but making the engine engine run lean. Get a trinity, you might also consider a 87mm ported throttle body.

If you need pricing on anything just let me know we will get you you the lowest pricing on the net guaranteed just email is @ sales@bullysperformance.com

Thanks

Been there done that. I built most of the trucks on Son's of Guns on Discovery. The blue mighty max with the mg42 in the bed was my son's truck. He is down there working and filming right now until school starts back.

the first build before it got run into a post.



At the house here last deer season. Will has got me into flintlocks now as well as black guns. No thats not me in the buckskins.
