Default Getting ready to crank it up a notch :)

87mm ported TB
2800 Edge Stall
Vararam Intake
Diablo trinity tuner
Catch Can
$1860 (actually not bad for all those parts)

Got a cheap tranny jack adapter to go to my floor jack at home. $60 (not bad)

Also getting the back up camera(camera, handle, harness) and trailer brake controller ordered from Moparonline ($453 shipped)

Excited. There are a lot of things I like about this truck but it is missing a couple things. Hopefully this list of parts makes it that much better.

Long term would like to do Long tubes but I will see where this list gets me.

Let the fun begin.

I plan on doing all the installs myself as soon as the parts arrived or the weekend following.

I will try and do some datalogging with the Trinity when I get it and compare stock, bullydog with whatever mods I have done at the time. I am not going to wait until Diablo releases tuning to compare the truck in stock form.

Decided against the trailer brake controller for now. Need to spend some time/money on getting this black paint back in line.

Don't have any parts yet so I spent 6 hours on the paint. Wash then clay bar followed by a cutting compound then polishing compound and finally a nice coat of wax. Paint really cleaned up very nice. No swirls and most of my sscratches are gone undrr fluorescent light. Going to care of the wheels today and interior then ready for the parts.

Sorry for the misspelling my phone is being laggy.

HOLD the phone!

Change of plans, all parts might be for sale. Might be trading the truck in, the planets have aligned, the incentives are high and the dealers are motivated.

Already cancelled my TC order from Edge. The TB, Intake, and Catch Can will be here today. Place I ordered is charging a re-stocking fee and pay as well as pay for original shipping and return shipping (fair enough). Probably better to sell the stuff to forum memebers.

So this stuff will be listed soon!
